So Mexico and Panama played in the CONCACAF Cup yesterday in Houston. Why they played in the soccer hotbed of southeastern Texas, I’m not really sure, but everyone seemed pretty grumpy about it, especially after this confrontation between Mexican coach Javier Aguirre and Panama’s Ricardo Phillips. Regardless of where you lay the blame, no coach should ever be that close to an opposing player, let alone swinging a leg that close to his face.
The act led to a bunch of pushing and shoving, coming up just short of punchy goodness. I’m 80 percent sure that Latinos don’t learn how to punch anyone until they get to America, the land of opportunity and uppercuts. But then they finished the game with a 1-1 tie and then everyone went back to the parking lot to see who had the best hydraulics systems in their cars.
A more Yakety version of the video is after the jump.
