Nothing says "class" like chanting "USA USA" when a foreign born player is shooting free throws. Once, you can excuse for stupid kids, after that, where is the administration?

Was the kid making his shots from the other side of the border? Chanting USA while in the USA has got to stop.

" Imagine if the U.S. national basketball team played a tournament in Paris. American fans filled the arena for the championship game against France. They booed the French national anthem and the home team whenever it had the ball. They chanted obscenities at France’s point guard.... It would cause an international incident. Something similar happened over the weekend, only nobody seems to care. Mexico beat the U.S. 4-2 in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in Pasadena, Calif.... Other than a column in the Los Angeles Times, the atmosphere at Saturday’s game was hardly noted. When it was, the crowd was called enthusiastic or impassioned. How about boorish? Certainly not all 93,420 fans, but enough to leave you wondering just what the U.S. did to get Mexico so enthusiastic and impassioned. The antics weren’t anything new. In a 2005 World Cup qualifier, the Mexican crowd booed the U.S. national anthem and some fans chanted “Osama! Osama!” during the game. Two years ago fans threw containers holding urine and vomit at Landon Donovan...." http://aol.sportingnews.com/soccer/story/2011-06-27/sorry-mexico-great-win-but-fans-were-embarrassment#ixzz1QWJ8gYnw

I am not talking about global behavior - I am simply saying we should be teaching our kids better. The behavior at the game, and the lack of administration intervention or comment. No, it is not everyone, but enough. I don't think what happens in World cup 2005 justifies what happens at a local high school.
