In contrast, Mexicans found unattended alcohol during Mexico’s match against Cameroon on June 13. In a YouTube video, viewers watch scores of Mexican fans steal armloads of beer before returning to their seats to lustily cheer Mexico on to victory.
Moral of the story: when it comes to etiquette, the Japanese got class, but the Mexicans got sass. It would behoove our friends south of the border to learn some manners.
