Para Los Ninos

While the the vast majority of the fans at the stadium tomorrow night will be cheering for Mexico, the U.S. team found a few fans at the private school where about half the team trained today. While most of the kids sheepishly predicted a Mexico victory when asked by the U.S. players, one contemplative young man paused for a moment before saying, "ummm...2-2 tie." A future politician, perhaps? Still, the kids were excited to meet the U.S. players, even knowing a few of them by name. One young man asked, "Is Tarpley here?" The U.S. middie was at the pool workout instead, which disappointed the muchacho, who when asked why Tarpley was his favorite player responded, "Because she's blond!"
