Not only is my hometown Monterrey considered as the #4 smartest city in the world by Forbes Magazine (their ranking went down by two when I moved out), but in the article they use a photo taken by none other than my baby brother Moi.
Thirty dollars to see a minor league American soccer team play a friendly match. Who knows which players Monterrey will even bring in the middle of the season? Ridiculous. I'd go if it cost $15 or less.
Perhaps the best remembered of their meetings over the years was Los Rayados' similarly emphatic 4-1 away win in the Clausura Championship semi-finals back in June 2003. This coming Saturday's game made it to FIFA.com's website. Monterrey will win, of course. Best quote:
"Inspired by a magnificent performance from Guillermo Franco, Monterrey took a decisive step towards the final, where they prevailed in an exciting two-legged decider against Morelia." ...happy times.
We have been hearing about a new stadium for Monterrey since the days of Jorge Lankenau. Lately the rumblings are growing and yesterday they presented a proposal for this 75,000 spectator stadium. Look too good to ever become true.
