This is exciting stuff, Santos Laguna vs. Club America in certainly close to a state of the art stadium in Torreon, currently tied 1-1 and now, San Luis Potosi vs. Queretaro, the Mexican Division I've been informed has only 18 teams, the teams play 18 games, not two games against each opponent but apparently 1 game vs. each, the crowd is pumped so it is almost like all of these are playoff games, I did enjoy the FC Dallas NY Red Bulls game but this is totally different. This is big league, I even heard some singing earlier, a full schedule on this Wednesday night.. San Luis jumped to a 2-0 lead but Queretaro has come back to make it 2-1 here at the end. It'd be a blast to see a game, I've got to wonder if the strife in Mexico really has that much impact on your regular citizen because at these games, it does not seem so. It's a country of 100 million and no we don't need them all coming up here but these games are pretty good. I've been to the Pacific coast down there but .... that's actually one of the danger areas especially Sinaloa where the biggest cartel resides, I sure would not go to that area, a section like San Luis Potosi, Puebla and Mexico City would seem to be relatively safe.

I use to watch it, now a friend of mine is a big Pumas fan so I try to catch their games. About 2 more games after this and then the tournament of the top 8 games. I'm not all sure about how their system works, they have relegation but currently, they don't really show teams that would get relegated in about 2 weeks time. San Luis wins, they are battling to get into those top 8. The emblem for Santos Laguna is pretty cool looking too, I think they are a 'hoops' team meaning jerseys a bit like Celtic, hoops.
Santos-CA ends 1-1, actually blocked penalties by both goalkeepers (arqueros) in the 2nd half... once I could only get the Mexican games with regularity so once, we got the other leagues, I cooled on it but my friend is a fanatic that now, I'm getting back in the swing of it, good matches. I tried picking their games once before but did not do too well, I may try again though the teams seem a bit inconsistent, at least some of the teams like Pumas, they were 1st for a while, then lost 3 games straight, one a bad 4-0 loss, now they are back in 1st place. Pumas, the UNAM team, Universidad Austonoma de Mexico but I don't know how exactly it fits that this well known University has a professional soccer team.
