    I have been very impressed with your chants, Thunderstix, drums, and the hand cymbals known as "kweng gua ri."

    Thank you for showing our nation the passion for soccer.

    Thank you for cheering on both teams.

    Thank you for holding out hope that someday good leaders (starting, hopefully here, in Washington) will stop keeping families apart on The Peninsula.

    With warm regards,
    Al

    Football's a sport where people are supposed to be loud :)

    BTW, hows the US going? It must be really *#*#*#*#*#*# with the pro league going down .. I thought they had pretty good attendances?

    TOTC,

    It is a problem for North and South Korea to resolve. Not for anyone in the US.

    Nor for anyone in the US? Allow me to point out that the whole situation is a creation of external entities, among them the US, not of the Korean people ..

    Perhaps if the US stopped interfering in the affairs of Korea the statement would be true.

    As opposed to Russian and Chinese interference?

    Maybe you're right and the US never should have ever interfered in the pacific at all, at any time.

    Of course you have every reason to complain, without US "interference" all of Australia could be speaking Japanese right now.

    Ok, lets leave the politics out of this thread and get it back on track.

    I was surprised to hear see so many Koreans at the WWC games. It reminded me of last year's World Cup with the chanting and noise making.

    In case any of you will be watching ESPN2 on Sunday, a "kweng garee" will be part of the La Norte group. (I bought one in South Carolina!)

    Watch out Crew!

    La Norte is one of DC's supporter groups along with Screaming Eagles, Barra Brava.

    How's Seattle by the way?

    Never knew they had different supporting groups. Interesting.

    Seattle is ok, i guess. The weather has been fantastic (not too much rain or cloudy weather..yet). Missing the nightlife i once enjoyed back home; i need to turn 21 asap. Going through cultural shock because there are too much wildlife here. Sad and shocked because the Yankees beat the Sox. Yes, the Sonics suck. We want Gary Payton back. But other than that, I'm liking it.

    Are you in Flushing?

    Yeah, a few of the teams have a few different supporter groups.

    Heh. You can always invest in a fake id. Just give it time and I'm sure the culture shock will be fine. And yes, the Yankees suck. Hope it gets better for ya though.

    Nah, I'm not far from Flushing. I'm a few town over in Little Neck. Right now I'm up at school though in Providence, RI.

    Thankx! Only in our "D-C-U-NI-TED" call and response, the response is six beats instead of five.

    Same thing with the Chicago Fire Barn Burners.

    But our Washington Freedom supporters used five beats (like "Daehan Minguk").

    College. Johnson & Wales University. Never heard of it? Didn't think so.
    I think I saw some of the Midnight Riders doing the same routine. Well, I saw one of em holding the instrument anyway. I didn't hear any Reeee-vo-lu-tion chants. Plus it would probably sound stupid. DC United works pretty well though.
    Haha. Very nice touch Sachin.

    About the US being responsible

    Take it easy man. It's not all simple as the Chinese, Soviets and the Americans. Remember at the time of independence we were so divided we could have had a civil war anyway, and if we had one without a definite partition we could have had a case like Yugoslavia where regions would decide what they want and start splitting up. It may sound far fetched but if u think about it it very well could have happened.

    I noticed that!

    But the mallet he held looked like a soft bass-drum mallet. You need one with a wooden end.

    That way WE MAKE FRIGGIN NOIIIIISE!

    Thanks for your sentiments. I saw two games live and have to admit, the Corean fans by far outnumbered Norwegian, Japanese and Canadian fans and were the most organized and vocal. A bit of a shame since the south Corean side were utter rubbish on the pitch.

    Also, you're quite right about the good leaders from Washington part because, more so than China, the US is accountable for what's happening on the peninsula. Self-determination really ought to be left up to the two Coreas but as is obvious, there's too much self-interest for this to realistically happen.
