The Hex – @ Azteca

The 0-0 draw in Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca felt like a win for the U.S. Soccer team last week.  Excellent performances by Omar Gonzalez, DaMarcus Beasley, Michael Bradley, and Brad Guzan, as well as a non-PK call that goes the other way nine times out of ten on the road…

And just like that, World Cup Qualification and the great Klinsmann Project seem a whole lot less precarious.  Especially considering how many key U.S. players were out with injuries; especially considering the way the back-end of the Hex schedule falls with home games.

But we’d like to give a special shout-out to the 500 or so fans who braved the vitriol in the Azteca to support the team.  As documented by the excellent KickTV series, ‘The Hex’, this looks like something I might have tried ten or so years ago…

But for now, looks like we will have to satisfy ourselves with the home match against Mexico, which will be September 10 in Columbus.  Wouldn’t miss it.
