    This game is on Univision and is now at halftime. According to Mediotiempo's lineups, Texan Marco Antonio Vidal (#12) started. Mexican-capped New Mexican Edgar Castillo started for America.

    Indios are last in the relegation table but a win would move them up (I believe) over Necaxa. America is fighting for a playoff (liguilla) spot. Indios are pulling off the upset so far with a 1st half surprise lead 2-1 at Estadio Azteca.

    I wasn't paying much attention to this game switching back and forth between it and Somali pirate coverage but will try to pay attention in 2nd half to see how Vidal looks.

    I watched it. Thought both did pretty well. Crazy and entertaining game. Castillo's from my hometown in NM, which, coincidentally is about 45 minutes away from where Indios play. Castillo's a great player, but not a great sportsman from what my cousin tells me. He got a saliva-based present from Edgar right in the face during one high school match. Maybe he's grown up since then, but his recent debacle with his passport doesn't suggest that's the case.
