VIDEO: ¡Ask a Mexican! on Why Mexicans in the U.S. Root for Mexico's Soccer Team

The eternal Mexican love for Mexico's soccer team, even when they're three generations into assimilation in the United States, makes gabachos even crazier than they usually are. Back in 2002, I wrote an op-ed about the subject for Pacific News Service, and the question inevitably floods my inbox every time the FIFA World Cup is staged. And since it's 2014 and the World Cup starts next week, here you go.

Anyhoo, enjoy!
