Update on the Gold Cup games!!!
USA beat Panama (Yes!)
Mexico beat Honduras (Ohh)
So Saturday night Mexico is playing against USA in the final! Let me tell you people, I'm a little obsessed with almost anything that has to do with Mexico. Seriously, I think I was born in the wrong country. I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I actually convinced a girl once that I WAS IN FACT Mexican, but I was white because of a pigment disorder. Yeah, dumb girl believed THAT big fat lie. Then she proceeded to tell all her little friends and they just looked at her like she had told them that last summer she had a rendezvous with E.T.
Now I don't want people jumping all over me saying that I'm un-American because of my little obsession. I am VERY proud to be an American. I support our troops, I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I hear the song 'God Bless the USA', and I look forward to every August so that I can have a fair burger and go to a rodeo.
Having said that...my husband is CONVINCED that I'm going to be cheering for Mexico. He knows that I love Mexico and he despises that. I'm actually going to cheer for the US. Why? Cause it's my country. I was born and raised here and I love it. I don't like some of the things that are going on and I don't think our leaders are necessarily doing a great job, and even though so many people HATE Americans, I'm pretty damn proud to be one. I firmly believe that this is the greatest country in the world and we have the potential to be even greater than we are now if some of our country's leaders could get their heads out of each others asses.
Also, during the games that I've watched during the Gold Cup, I've become very unimpressed with the Mexican players. First of all, the referees seem to baby and cater to them, and they use that to their advantage. Second, they're EXTREMELY cocky. I understand celebrating when you win and feeling bad when you lose, but they're bad losers AND bad winners. To top it all off, rumor has it that several of the players are using steroids.......and no one is doing anything about it. If it was another team, the players would be suspended until another decision could be made. None of the Mexican players are being punished and I don't think they're even being looked into. Now I'm no expert, and I probably don't know all of the details, but. . . . . . .I'm just going to guess that some of the team's owners are in cahoots with some of the drug cartels. . . . .and maybe that's why nothing is being done. . . . .but that's just a guess.
ANYWAYS! I'm looking forward to the game, and I'll letch-ya'll know how it goes...whether you care or not.
