Payton Giving Props

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton knows a thing or two about football and isn't afraid to write about. In this week's editions of 'Monday Morning Quarterback', he addresses the issue that is starting to creep its way into the minds of most fans at this point in the summer:

d. Congrats to the U.S. men's national soccer team, finishing second in the recent Confederations Cup in South Africa. In the coming weeks, they will play Mexico in a 2010 World Cup qualifying match in Mexico City. In 23 games, the U.S. has never defeated the Mexicans on their home soil (0-22-1), but this is the year it could happen. I believe they have their best chance to beat Mexico and I think we should all be pulling for the upset and support this team."

Thanks for the pep talk, coach ...

Okay, I had to knock on wood to offset the jinx :)

But fingers are crossed, and I am very optimistic. We've got such an amazing squad right now, they've already done incredible things this year and there are more to come, I'm sure. Azteca is the Final Frontier :)

Love you guys! :)
