As you’ve no doubt been appraised by now, the US snatched a point from the Mordorian maw of Estadio Azteca on Sunday night. As is the case with every one of these games, it was something else.
Watching on the TV box is one thing, but actually being in attendance dodging thrown beers and bags of… substances… is another matter entirely.

One of the world’s best rivalries? You betcha.
