Of all the MLS fans, none would seem to be more ripe for split loyalties than those of Chivas USA. By definition, their team is tied to one in Mexico, but are directly supporting one in the United States. The Goat Parade, SB Nation's Chivas USA blog, tries to shed some light on this duality:
Why Chivas USA fans are supporting both countries: Ok, so a lot of fans bristle at the prospect of supporting more than one country, but sometimes, that is life. For some, having both Mexican and American identities means it is too hard to choose just one country. For others, living in the melting pot of Los Angeles means that competing allegiances are irresistible. No Chivas players are on the American or Mexican Gold Cup squads, either, so fans do not have an obligation to support one country over another on behalf of their club. And of course, there are some frontrunners in this crowd. "Wow, is this really the Sven Goran Eriksson era for Mexico? The USA looks pretty good right now." "Ooh, is the U.S. forward line allergic to scoring? Hey, look, Chicharito is scoring lots of goals." Frontrunners are usually gross but we all know a friend or two who does this, don't we?
