Come to America probably take someone's job who was born in America and then show up to a baseball game showing your love for the country you disbanded because, again, it FUCKING SUCKS. I don't know if I'm just being a racist tonight or what the deal is, but this really pissed me off for some reason. These people are in OUR country, most of them probably illegal and they're rooting for the team the USA is playing against. I don't know, I just don't get it... I'm going to go drink some more.
Keep in mind, I'm not upset the USA lost in the WBC because, personally, the structure of it is lame and doesn't favor the truly BEST team (not saying the USA is, because I think Domincan Republic is).
What do you guys think about this?
i dont agree with you on 2 small things.. took someones job? ok lets face the facts, if i had a store, and i had a choice of two employees to hire, a snobby american who wanted a high pay and did lazy crappy work, or a mexican who wanted low pay and works his butt off, id definetely rather go for the mexican, maybe if the american got up to it and actually did hard work, he might get hired
secondly, they say mexican pride as a heritige, probably, not as a country, like if someone in the USA is part german for instance, he may want the german teams in the olympics to win instead of the USA teams,a nd hes showing GERMAN pride, not GERMANY pride(lets think of our cars, now)
