I'd say you've never been to a soccer game, either in one of the countries
of which you speak, or in our country, playing the national team from one of
those countries. If you want to see people _literally_ draped in flags, go
to LA and watch a US-Mexico game at the Rose Bowl. Or perhaps you saw the
welcoming for Elian--you couldn't have missed the blanket of Cuban flags. I
think you jump to conclusions here.
