SoccerWatch...I think this Kevin Sullivan/Mary Jordan account is supposed to be funny:

MEXICO CITY, June 17 -- The gringos have done it again. Americans have been known as land-grabbers here since the 1840s, when they acquired half of Mexico's territory -- at rifle-point. But until today, there was always one bit of sacred ground that they could never conquer, despite their money and power: the 8,625 square yards of a soccer field.

More post-colonial sins:

To Mexican eyes the United States has more than its share of everything, and instead of sharing with Mexicans it builds walls along its border and treats Mexicans looking for jobs as an invading army. Now, they say, taking soccer superiority away from Mexico is piggish, unfair -- and typical.
