Mexico 3, Iran 1

This is the first World Cup match I watched. It was rife with political relevence. 1) The Iranian President tried to attend the match but was ruled persona non grata by Germany. I'm sure everyone noticed the irony of the Iranian President cheering his team on to victory in the city of Nurnburg... 2) The Mexican team includes two naturalized Mexicans. This has caused a great amount of outrage among Mexicans because "Mexico is for Mexicans". America was then heard to say, "whao, whao, whao, hold on a second..."

What the heck is "whao"? The word is spelled "whoa."

Interesting... and I wholeheartedly agree that Mexico is indeed for Mexicans.

Big story on the news last night about racism and such during soccer games in Europe. Several countries have called on FIFA to help out, but many say they have done too little. From what was shown on the news (?) there is a pretty big white-supremacist movement still with a firm toehold in Europe... they showed some pretty inflamatory stuff.
