Tonight the U.S. Men's National Team kicks off the fourth and final round of World Cup qualifying with a match against Mexico in Columbus. The U.S. plays in no games that are as intense as the contests against Mexico, with which the squad has a fierce and long-standing rivalry. After decades of dominance over the U.S. the rivalry between the two teams has evened out, and the U.S. hasn't lost at home to Mexico since 1999, and they hope to continue that trend against a Mexican team that is somewhat distracted. I have it from confidential sources that the game can be seen online here or here, if you're planning on being stuck at work like I am.
