so at this family party yesterday, the uncles were drunk. there was this guy that used to play for toluca there (friend to my uncle). this is not a lie, es la truth verdadera. an injury got him out of soccer, now he works with the houston dynamo, i think. ANYWAY one of my uncles asked why jonathan was called to the NT when he hasnt done anything to merit. this toluca guy said that Zizinho paid a huge amount of money to aguirre's people to get him there. im said "boonkers." he then started lecturing how many things in mexican soccer are bought, corrupt and what not. he even talked about this one deal between the united states and mexico. where the latter was to let the former defeat them for the next ten years. the purpose was to make the united states' soccer grow. it is possible that mexico's condition that they would not lose in mexico. so i again i was bonkers... but then i thought... maybe thats why aguirre made that dumb ass move in the world cup. maybe he was forced to lose that game. we were pretty much dominating that game until he took out ramon morales (i think i could be wrong). i dont know.. well, i do know something, all i know that last night that table sounded like an episode of futbol picante. i for one dont want to believe that our futbol is ********ed up. i want to believe.
