I know the U.S. has had troubles beating Mexico in the past. I also find it fitting that they beat them to qualify for the World Cup before they did. I think the U.S. has a good chance to do some things in Germany next year.
I actually just got back from watching this at a movie theater in New Jersey (done through Fathom Events). The crowd was enthusiastic, but pretty small and that made me sad because I would go the theater route again.
