Mexico Football Gold Medal
We're all excited here in our part of the world today. This morning we watched Mexico win the gold medal in football (soccer) against Brazil. Final score 2-1. This was actually the first soccer game that I've watched and what a game it was! Mexico scored a goal in the opening minutes of the game which gave them a wonderful momentum for the remainder of the game. We met with friends and many others (Mexicans, Americans, and Canadians) at a local restaurant to watch the game and had a wonderful time. I've never been much of a sports enthusiast but it was an honor to be able to take part in our adopted country's victory -- Viva Mexico!
