What a fiesta

The 2-1 squeaker for Mexico in Mexico City wasn't the real story. What matters is the usual shameful behavior of the Mexican fans -- booing the American national anthem, pelting American players with beer containers while they're taking crucial corner kicks, and afterward mouthing arrogance and hatred toward our country.

Less than appealing too were the comment by star forward Landon Donovan that "it wasn't a do-or-die game for us" and the ho-hum attitude of Coach Bob Bradley. If this wasn't a crucial endeavor, perhaps they should resign from the U.S. national team and pursue goals that interest them more.
