It was imperfectly odd. It was strangely unsettling. It was uniquely American.On a balmy early Saturday summer evening, the U.S soccer team played for a prestigious championship in a U.S. stadium … and was smothered in boos.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.

For those of you seeing this outside of South Florida, it should be noted for the record that these Mexican/M-A fans in SoCal talking about rooting for Mexico, despite living in the U.S., sound remarkably like South Florida Jews talking about any subject involving Israel for local Miami TV newscasts. Entirely predictable!
The video above of the man who has been living in the U.S. for 40 years but who speaks Spanish to the KNBC reporter instead of English, is too good to be true as far as local TV cliches go.
In that sense, it sounds exactly like Miami TV.
If only the reporter had interviewed him at a sports bar, THAT would've been a sports cliche grand slam!
