we’re number 2! we’re number 2!

Last week saw yet another meeting between the U.S. Mens National team in a “friendly” (I believe there is no such thing as a friendly. Especially not between the U.S. and Mexico. And especially not when this happens.) with the national team of Mexico. The two played to a 2-2 draw, with every blog in cyberspace being quick to point out that a draw is not a loss, and therefore our unbeaten streak remains intact.

Whatever.

That game has been dissected to death, so I’m not about to reiterate what has already been said a dozen times over. On the contrary, this post is far more self-serving.

In honor of the match, last week on SBI Ives held yet another of his “You Write the Caption” contests about this picture of USMNT/NJ Red Bulls rookie Jozy Altidore schooling Mexico/Barça defender Rafael Marquez in the US/Mexico friendly last Wednesday.
