USMNT head to Mexico City

Oh to be a flight attendant on board Hotness Air today.  Not one of those little puffins would even have to ask for a second bag of pretzel bites.

Per the various twitter accounts of the boys on the USMNT, the Americans boarded a charter this afternoon to make the 3 hour flight to Mexico City, a day ahead of their World Cup Qualifying match vs. their rival neighbors south of the border.

Apparently the Americans were met by Mexican fans at the airport who serenaded them with songs of “cinco a cero,” still reeling from their 5-0 win over the USA in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

100,000 Mexicans are expected to turn out at Estadio Azteca tomorrow.  I just hope the boys know how much those of us back on home soil are pulling for them.

USA Broadcast information can be found here.
And if you can’t watch, you can always get twitter updates by following USSoccer’s Twitter.

Come on, boys.  Let’s Roll.
