    Why? So we can get used to playing in front of a pro-Mexican crowd?

    How about that open net choke job by Beasley on the 2 on 0?!?!? How the hell do you miss that?!?!?!?
    That beasley fool was choking all tournament. He chipped more shots over the bar then I can count... which makes it about... 10?

    Every friendly (plus the Gold Cup) they've had this year was in the US. The crowd may have more fans for the opposition but that is not the same as playing in tough road stadiums. I wouldn't be surpised if they didn't win a single game in Copa America.

    Their last friendly this year will be on the road against Sweden. They're leading their Euro 2008 group so that should be a good test.

    Yes, but playing Mexico is not playing Argentina/Brasil. It doesn't matter where the US plays Mexico, unless we're talking altitude.

    We're not even going to use the top guys in the Copa America, I don't think.

    Please see Argentina Soccer Team.

    US and Mexico both played the same in terms of fouls, US got away with a lot of obvious fouls as well.

    BTW I love both teams but I follow Guadalajara soccer so I identify with the players better.

    How about Howard's save on Bautista? WOW!

    It was just an example. Mexico is the only real competition in the region. As KP's post pointed out we've played them here 9 of the last 12 times. If they start beating them in Mexico City or anywhere outside of the States on a regular basis then I'll start getting excited. Adding a few friendlies in central and south america even against the lesser countries would also be a good start.
