I couldn't help but laugh when I read this: Notebook: Team miffed with Ruiz's absence Striker not heard from since leaving for Guatemala by STEVE DAVIS / The Dallas Morning News Carlos Ruiz was AWOL on Saturday, and club officials aren't happy about it. FC Dallas general manager Greg Elliott said the Guatemalan striker faces disciplinary action – whenever the club sees him again. Ruiz was allowed to return home to Guatemala earlier this week for personal business. He was due back Thursday, but the club had yet to hear from him Saturday. Elliott said he and coach Colin Clarke could only assume Ruiz was still in Guatemala, because the striker was due to report there anyway today for international duty in the Gold Cup. "The big issue for us, first and foremost, is the lack of communication," Elliott said. "There is no excuse for him not communicating with us. We just can't have that." ----------------- I think someone should buy him one of those cell phones with a GPS tracker in it.
