Even though last night's World Cup qualifying match between the United States and Mexico ended in a tie, it was essentially a victory for the American team, which came into the game with a 0-13-2 record in World Cup qualifiers at Estadio Azteca. The game left the American contingent of fans at the stadium feeling rather pleased with themselves, and the Mexican fans feeling quite frustrated. That's a perfect recipe for some good ol' fashioned beer throwing.

The video above is a little shaky, but you can clearly see a steady stream of beer and other debris raining down on the American fans, who respond with prideful chanting and some taunting. Before you give the Americans too much credit for their bravery, though, please understand that they were being protected by a ring of police officers in riot gear. It's pretty easy to talk shit from behind a riot shield.
