So, how soon can we grant Messi U.S. citizenship?

Funny thing is, Argentina still doesn't really like Messi. Until he brings home the Cup, they will resent him for going to Spain and say he is no Mardona

The last world up, he almost quit the team because of the backlash he received,  He did not think it was worth it.

Yeah it's crazy... If you think of it from a US perspective, we would kill to have one of our players go play for one of the biggest clubs in the world and succeed.

A lot of people were even mad that Dempsey and Bradley decided to come back to the MLS because people wanted them to be playing against better competition.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

Yeah, it's crazy, though something tells me the haters in his home country are quickly changing their tune.
