Mexico's Biggest, Baddest Fan

That would be Manny Pacquiao, who says he's pulling for El Tri. Of course, he was hanging out in Nayarit at the time, which suggests that he's taking to his new profession well.

Mexicans, of course, share his preference, and Mitofsky says that they are feeling optimistic about the Tri's chances. Twenty-seven percent of those polled say that Mexico could make the semifinals, while 9 percent can picture Mexico bringing home the trophy, both of which would be all-time bests. Sixty percent say that Mexico will "perform well". Each of the indices is slightly down from 2006, despite the fact that the team is probably better this time around.
