Damn, That Stung

Yeah, OK, our first stringers were off with their club teams after the nice run during the Confederations Cup, but, damn, it still hurts to get spanked 5-0 by Mexico. On "home" soil, no less, in the Gold Cup final. The Mexicans weren't at full strength, either, but I think they were much closer to an "A" side than the Americans were.

Those would be the Americans who, after giving up a goal after a bullshit penalty call (who knew that when the Mexican attacker whangs the American defender in the face with an elbow the American gets called for the foul!), folded like a cheap suit. An even first half gave way to a second half blood bath. Painful to watch, probably even more painful to play through.
