Oh Boy

I’m just going to drop this one in here like a hockey puck and quietly back away. From the AP:

GUADALAJARA, Mexico — The boos nearly drowned out “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and a few dozen fans chanted “Usama! Usama!” as the United States was eliminated by Mexico in Olympic men’s soccer qualifying.

A loud anti-American crowd yelled the first name of Usama bin Laden (search), the leader of the Al Qaeda (search) terrorists who carried out the Sept. 11 attacks, as Mexico beat the United States 4-0 Tuesday night in the under-23 tournament, claiming a berth in the Athens Olympics (search).

As U.S. players left the stadium for their bus, several fans — some clutching beers — chanted “Usama! Usama!”
