Paul's trip to Mexico City for the Mexico vs. USA WC Qualifier 8/12/09
Our friend Paul "Duke" Dueker made the journey to Mexico City and the Azteca Stadium with the hope that the USA could finally break the long standing losing streak (22-1-0) against their southern neighbor on their home turf. He will have to make the trip again sometime because the US failed to capitalize on an early lead to lose the game 2:1. Paul had to put up with the taunts, the smog and congestion, but thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink, the excitement of sitting in a crowd of 105,000 football fanatics, the beautiful senoritas, and some great fellowship with his fellow travelers as well as Mexican Nationals.
