Go back in time to Aug. 1, 2011, to Jurgen Klinsmanns introductory press conference as U.S. mens national team coach, when he said this: Theres so much influence coming from the Latin environment over the last 15-20 years. It also has to be reflected in the U.S. national team.

I won’t click on what I assume to be another trash article from the SI-ESPN-ABC crowd.
More racist rubbish. More counting noses, impugning motives and damning reputations from the thought police. They can go pound sand.
Problem is I have close colleagues in: Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Chile, and Brazil. So even if Team USA is not playing I am shouting FORZA ITALIA! or such.
I gotta believe the Brazilians have their act together and there will be no major FUBARS with the stadiums and logistics. we will see.
The ESPN PC idiots are beyond obnoxious.
