Jan 22nd 2012 8:46PM Way too safe. We just came back from there.
Jan 22nd 2012 8:26PM Let me see, what country has the biggest drug consumption problem in the planet? The U.S.
What country has over 100 gun manufacturers that sell their goods to anyone, so they can pay for their mortgages? The U.S.
Who is the most hated and least respected country in the world, including those countries in Europa and Asia that are supposed to be alies? The U.S.
Americans bad economy makes its government and media piss on Mexico by creating more negativity for Mexico than what the thuth is, so that hotels on Orlando, California, Vegas, Atlantic City and othe destinations within the U.S. can fill out rooms instead of traveling to by far the most beautiful beaches and tourist attractions in the Western Hemisphere (Mexico).
The whole world knows how hipocratic Americans are.
Jan 22nd 2012 8:14PM Growing up in Arizona, half of my classroom did drugs (private Catholic school). I am 47 years old well into my Babyboomer time and I know most of the children of people that I went to school do drugs, so as long as people in the U.S. consume drugs like they do, Mexico will continue to have the demand-supply problem. Stop Americans from shipping guns illegally and maybe Mexico will be the safest place on earth. Also, American media and the Government are creating more smoke, so that American consumers spend their vacation $$$ in Orlando, NY, California, Las Vegas and other places in the States. Mexico is a victim buddy.
Jan 22nd 2012 8:04PM Mexico is safe and as long as you Americans continue to produce guns and ship them to Mexico to pay your mortages, Mexico will continue to hae drug delaers killing each other. By the way, why dont you educate your society to STOP doing drugs!!! The U.S. is the # 1 DRUG CONSUMING PLACE in the world!!!
Dec 2nd 2010 5:40PM This only shows us Americans that we are not all we think we are, including being a richer nation than most. Humbleness does not hurt us at all, specially now that we are seing that the world is not only about the United States of America. Let us learn from this and move on as we need to focus more on picking up our economy and reputation around the world.
Aug 14th 2009 11:09PM I am an American living in Mexico!
I went to the game since Adidas provided my family and I with great tickets where we watched a Mexican team 85% of the time dominating a U.S. team that lacked conditioning, tactical and worst of all...sportsmanship. There were about 119 thousand Mexican fans dressed in green and about 1000 US fans dressed in red tells the story of how much the US team had against them besides the altitude, climate and environment conditions. Mexico is a country of good people for the most part. They don't like us Americans because of the way we are and treat them and 99% of all other nations. It is not something new! It is sad to find out Donovan got the Influenza in the U.S., but it very obvious that Donovan is jealous of David Beckham (just read his recently published book) and the Mexican Soccer league that that although he grew up with Mexican descendants in California where he also learned to play, he never learned to appreciate the wonderful culture Mexicans have. I was talking to the owner of a professional soccer club in Mexico and he said that no Mexican team would be interested in bringing him to Mexico to play. Although, Donovan makes sort of good money playing for the Galaxy, any Mexican club would have the money to double or triple the salary he makes in the U.S., but he is not liked or respected by the players or people that run the clubs down here.
It is his arrogant and immature attitude towards Mexico that close any doors for him in this wonderful country. Since Donovan and the U.S. Team were not able to beat Mexico after all of the U.S. media speculation that this U.S. Team would be able to come to Mexico at Azteca and beat Mexico for the first time in history...more crap, beer and everything else fell from the sky to shower spoil brat Donovan, the rest of the U.S. players as well as myself as well as thousands of other fans that were sitting close to the field.
In all honesty, the U.S. has a good team, but Mexico is a better and more matured soccer culture. It was not the British that invented soccer, it was the Aztecs...just read about the ancient Aztec culture to figure it out! So let's not kid ourselves, we are still decades behind in loving the sport the way the rest of the word does.
The U.S. Soccer Federation treats the Mexican Team like crap when they go to the U.S. to play against us. They make them practices in fields full holes of melted snow in the outskirts of Columbus, while the U.S. Team practices at Ohio State state-of-the-art artificial turf. They treat us the same way we treat them. That's why there is a rivalry that goes beyond geographical borders of ideologies. We dislike each other in soccer as much as Brazilians and Argentines hate each other when they have to play World Cup elimination rounds.
What would happen if a Mexican player would have been carrying the Influence virus and he had played against the U.S. team in American soil? Americans would have sent an army of doctors to the places where the Mexican team would have been staying. It is incredibly embarrassing to hear the level of excuses Donovan gave the media after the game. It is interesting how he claims to have played the game last Wednesday feeling already sick with the darn flu. Donovan should take it like a man and accept that the U.S. lost because they were out matched and out coached throughout the 90 minute game. Donovan is a good player, but that all goes away in the eyes of many people when he opens his mouth.
The U.S. is not like Mexico where they breath, sleep and eat soccer everyday. Just look at their professional league! Take a look at any street in Mexico City and you'll find kids of all ages kicking a soccer ball all day long. It is because of players like Donovan that we are hated in CONCACAF. We simply deserve what we get in Mexico, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, El Salvador, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and other CONCACAF nations. Outside of CONCACAF and the soccer world, we are very much hated as well. Let's use common sense and start calling them as they are, so that we stop doing what we are doing, including supporting or glorifying the crap Donovan tells the media and the American fans.
The fans at Azteca Stadium treated my wife, our two children and I with respect, but unfortunately, we have absurd bloggers, journalist and players that do not know how to lose or accept publicly when some one is better than we are.
We need to change within ourselves before we can rise to the next level in many aspects that include being part of the soccer world.
