Photo of the Week 10

I saw this child on top of his family’s van in the parking lot after the 2009 Gold Cup (Mexico v. United States). First of all, it was such an incredible game. Because of insane traffic, we didn’t arrive until halftime, at which point the score was still 0-0. THEN, in the second half, Mexico scored five goals, winning the game at 5-0. It was incredible. There’s just something about a live soccer game, so carnal and intense. The fans are crazy, it’s packed tight and sweaty, and so loud. This little boy was just sporting some pride for his team. ¡Sí, se puede! No, wait: ¡Sí, se pudo!
