If thousands of people of Mexican decent in this country still cheer for Mexico even if they are 2nd or 3rd generation, should I be cheering for the Swiss tomorrow? OK, maybe that doesn’t sound as PC as I’d like, but my great, great grandfather did leave Switzerland on his way to Northern California (with a stop in Ellis Island…my wife found proof on one of those Genealogy sites) to look for his fortune during the Gold Rush. He never found it but found a new life (with a Native American bride) in the New World.
Ah, who am I kidding, I’m American. Even though I spent my youth in other countries, I’m still American but I just hope tomorrow we see a good match and both national sides gain from the experience.
