“The goal was for the U.S. fans and the whole U.S. We made history,” said Orozco Fiscal, a 26-year-old defender from Orange, Calif., whose parents were born in Mexico. - espn
“I think it’s huge. It’s huge for I think all American fans, it’s huge for the team, and it’s historic,” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. “We were very well aware that we’ve never won here at the Azteca Stadium. This is an amazing experience for the all the players. We told them before the game: This moment is for you, go and grab it. We are all aware that it was a lot, a lot of work.” – nypost
“Tim Howard kept us in the game I don’t know how many times,” said Klinsmann, who has been trying to change the defensive mindset the American had at times under Bob Bradley. “It’s a mental aspect of it. Eventually, you need a little bit of luck, too, and I think in some instances we were lucky tonight.”
Goalkeeper Tim Howard made sure the Americans held on to the lead, changing directions to stop a deflected shot by Javier Hernandez in the 85th, then pawing away a header by Chicharito in the 89th. – nypost

“I don’t have any words to explain this,” Hernandez said to the crowd, speaking on the field after the final out. “I’ve been working so hard to throw one and today is for you guys.” – espn
#FelixTossesMariners1stPerfectGame Seattle Mariners Felix Hernandez, the one who hit and coincidentally broke #ARods hand, tossed a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays, last night! #Felix (2010 Cy Young winner) struck out 12 batters and of course the Mariners won the game 1-0! It was the first perfect game thrown by a Seattle Mariners pitcher, 23rd in #MLB history, and third this year! Amazingly, more than half (12) of the perfect games were thrown in the last 25 years!
“The Zico brand is about supporting naturally powered athletes,” the company said. “We partnered with Chad Johnson because of our great respect for what he has achieved on the playing field.
“However, in light of recent events involving Mr. Johnson, we have decided to terminate our relationship. The values we espouse, through our employees, our customers and our brand, are central to our mission. We have taken this proactive step to demonstrate just how important those values are.” – espn

He went from getting married over 40 days ago to poor play in #Dolphins training camp to headbutting his model wife in the face to domestic violence charges to being cut from the Dolphins to losing his endorsement deal with Zico. #HardKnocks
