In Gold Cup final, it's red, white and boo again
On a balmy early Saturday summer evening, the U.S soccer team played for a prestigious championship in a U.S. stadium … and was smothered in boos.
Its fans were vastly outnumbered. Its goalkeeper was bathed in a chanted obscenity. Even its national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach balls.
Welcome to another unveiling of that social portrait known as a U.S.-Mexico soccer match, streaked as always in deep colors of red, white, blue, green … and gray.
"Obviously … the support that Mexico has on the night like tonight makes it a home game for them," said U.S. Coach Bob Bradley, choosing his words carefully. "It's part of something we have to deal with on the night."
Multiculturalism rears it's ugly head again. Our illegal alien friends obviously have no loyalty to the United States. They come here to steal. But also disturbing is how their anchor babies grow up to feel loyalty to a country other than the U.S.
Kids who have never seen Mexico still consider themselves "Mexicans." The consequences of this are going to be worse than just our soccer team losing on our home soil.
