    The football/soccer, some events start earlier than the ceremony which will take place couple days later.

    I guess that is common procedure.

    That is an ominous start for a US women's team with 40+ straight wins.

    Tonight Mexico plays France in soccer. 2 of the 3 over the age limit players for France play at Tigres in Mexico


    This dude Andre-Pierre Gignac is an absolute legend tho. You would think that a euro player coming to mexico who had already played a wc with france and had been a top player in france would come with an ego but that was never a thing with him. He embraced the country and the people from day one.





    This dude mexican as hell now

    No fans is going to suck -- even these early women's soccer games are brutal with completely empty stands.

    I really enjoy watching different/ weird sports I'd normally never watch, but this no fan thing (absolute silence) is killing the vibe.

    but why would they use that song after the celebs made a fool of themselves using that same song during the pandemic? lol

    Edit: apparently that song is the unofficial Olympic anthem.. didn't know that..

    This was pretty cool and entertaining though. I was very impressed.
