Los Angeles is a Mexican City Who's Next?

Los Angeles is a Mexican City Who's Next? Mexicans celebrate win over U.S. -- In U.S. In Gold Cup final, it's red, white and boo again..Its fans were vastly outnumbered. Its goalkeeper was bathed in a chanted obscenity. Even its national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach balls. Most of these hostile visitors didn't live in another country. Most, in fact, were not visitors at all, many of them being U.S. residents whose lives are here but whose sporting souls remain elsewhere.. said Victor Sanchez, a 37-year-old Monrovia resident wearing a Mexico jersey. "I didn't have a choice to come here, I was born in Mexico, and that is where my heart will always be."
