Mexico Won!

I just watched the highlights of today's France Mexico World Cup game. You may hear people bellyaching about how the Mexican player was offside before he scored, and if you hear this, tell them I authorized you to bellow a hearty "bullshit." The French defender was employing an old trick called the "offside trap," and it is the epitome of a chickenshit maneuver. Instead, the defender should have played actual soccer and worked to defend against the attacker. The linesman responsible for monitoring this was correct: no offside call was warranted.
