USA Beats Voodoo Curse and Mexico (Again)

February 12, 2009

If you’re reading this blog, there is a 99% chance you saw the USA beat Mexico 2-0 last night on two goals by Michael Bradley and some stout goalkeeping by Tim Howard. So instead of giving a recap of a game you already saw, here are some highlights you can show to your Mexican friends who are still in denial that they haven’t won on US soil in 10 years.

LFV friend Greg Seltzer over at No Short Corners found this fun video of one Mexico fan who is taking the loss way too hard:

If that’s not enough, how about Lindsey Vonn’s gold medal winning run in the downhill at the World Championships in Val D’Isere?

USA-Mexico Countdown

February 10, 2009

The movers took away about half of my stuff today so and I’m now sitting here among piles of boxes waiting to be taken away tomorrow.

So, here are a few great articles which break down the impending USA-Mexico showdown pretty well.

Gol TV’s Phil Schoen has a nice preview over on his blog.

And for those of you in Columbus – make some noise! We expect to hear you all the way over here in Napoli!

USA-Mexico, Waiting On The Movers

February 10, 2009

Well vagabonds, I’m waiting on the movers to come start boxing up my stuff so there won’t be much time to write over the next few days. Instead, I’ll try to post a few snippets to keep you up to date.

My prediction for the USA-Mexico game is 2-1 for the USA with goals from Jozy Altidore and Sacha Kljestan. (and Rafa Marquez for Mexico). Look for the Tri to fight hard but struggle with the weather much like they did against Canada up in Thunder Bay a few years back.

Of course I won’t be able to see the match until my friend mails me the DVD. Instead, I’ll be “settling” for Italy-Brazil and France-Argentina.

If you are in the States, I suggest you don’t watch it at home but take your five-a-side buddies and go watch it at a sports bar. Tip well, raise hell, and see how many new US Soccer fans you can bring in while putting the soccer haters on notice that resistance is futile.
