snapshot of life in america

Last night my brother and I went to a soccer match in San Jose between the home club and visiting Mexican squad Pachuca. The match was the second leg of their Champions Cup battle. Pachuca had won their home leg, 3-0, and thus didn't need to do much to win the aggregate score. The Earthquakes put in one goal, but lost overall, 3-1. There were a little over 6000 in attendance; many of them rooted for the visitors.

And then there was the Metaphor of Assimilation.

Sitting in front of me was a family of three. The mom and dad each had on Pachuca jerseys. The son had on an Earthquakes jersey.

And thus do immigrants assimilate.
