Plaza de Toros Mexico city: Olé
Although I would rather see a bullfight in the immense Plaza de Toros, it was still refreshing to experience the energy of 50,000 people doing the wave and chanting Olé. The event was international motorcross freestyle. While the crowd heckled the American extreme sport athletes (a Swiss won the competition), it wasn't surprising for one American athlete to stick both middle fingers up. As if that wasn't enough, he had to grab his crotch for added effect. The announcer sympathized with him. He said: "it's not your fault, it's Bush."
