While you idiots were too busy watching the Espys, the CONCACAF Gold Cup turned in one of the best halfs of football I've ever witnessed. In the 54th minute, Mexico were up 2-0 and cruising to the top of their group. But Kenwyne Jones and the Soca Warriors would not be denied, and fifteen minutes later they had taken a 3-2 lead. Mexico needed a win to top the group, and miraculously scored two late goals in the 88th and 90th minutes to break the hearts of everyone watching.

While I still don't think he can pass the ball, it's safe to say I've finally fallen for our man-bunned Belgium.
