What country won what sporting event today (Thursday)?

I live in a VERY ethnic neighborhood in Chicago. Middle Eastern (mainly Iran, Iraq, Syria and Jordan), Hispanic (Mexican, Central and South American) and Asian (mainly Korean, Thailand and Japan).

Every time a country wins a big sporting event like football (soccer), you’ll hear cars honking on the main streets (Lawrence & Kedzie) and see people waving flags out the windows. For quite a while now I’ve been hearing cars honking and people screaming out their car windows, but my window angle is such that I can’t see any flags, and I’m too lazy to go walk down the alley to get a look.

So, some country somewhere won something big. Where and what?

If a mod thinks this should be in General Questions or MPSIMS, please move it. I wasn’t sure where to put it. Thanks.

Well, the Mexican Independence Day celebrations technically kick off at 11:00 p.m. on September 15. Maybe that’s what you’ve seen? I’ve been seeing lots of Mexican flags and decorated cars around here on the southwest side of Chicago since Sunday.

Hi, I was looking for another thread and came across this one. I wanted to apologise for not thanking your right away before the thread fell out of sight, out of mind.

Thank you!
