Wow, after watching that intro for the US-Mexico World Cup qualifier, I'm legitimately fired up! That duel national anthem thing was cool.
Seems like there is a sizeable Mexican crowd at this game. Didn't realize there were that many Mexicans in Columbus. I think I've represented a couple of the fans in the crowd on No Operator's License charges. I could all but guarantee that Columbus Police is going to have a DUI/No Ops checkpoint on the north side of the city tonight.
Question for soccer fans, why do they do that intro with the little kids holding hands with the players?? Is that some sort of sportsmanship thing?? Part of me thinks it is cool, but also potentially a little creepy.
ESPN2 is hilarious by the way. I haven't watched the Deuce in a long time other than for Mike and Mike. It's all commercials for bass fishing and strongman and BMX bikes and other auto racing stuff. Maybe it's time for a ESPN2-Versus merger or something.
Go USA. World Cup soccer is pretty underrated.
