On Friday, October 7th the Cuban national soccer team played team USA in a friendly match. The US won 2-0, but Cuba showed some very adept skill in attack. What I enjoyed was the ambience. The Cuban high school students cheered wildly and at the end started chanting "U-S-A."  It was a great day for all. Jill Biden also joined the contingent of Team USA supporters. After the game, I spent time with the Outlaws (formerly "Sam's Army"), hardcore Team USA fans. All in all, a great day! I hope it is the first of many such encounters between the US and Cuba.
