This can't possibly be a home game. Nearly all the fans are cheering against the home team.
On many levels, the symbolism is powerful as the L.A. Galaxy succumbs to Mexican powerhouse CD Guadalajara -- better known as Chivas -- in the SuperLiga [what in the world is that?] last weekend.
For one, the vast majority of the 37,373 fans on hand speak Spanish as a first language. That's a rapidly growing, soccer-loving part -- 42 million strong -- of the new America.
And, finally, the crowd takes great relish in hooting and hounding the team from the U.S.
So let me get this straight (unlike Soccer's non-straight players) a large group of Spanish speaking people went to a soccer game in America and rooted for the Mexican team... and we are to believe that we are in a NEW America that now likes soccer?
Tighten up the borders and see if that is still the case. I wonder how many of these 42 million are legal Americans.
