Newest Chiva

A couple of things I didn't realize or had forgotten about Ramon Nunez that I came across while researching a feature I wrote on him.

- He lived in Dallas from age 5; went to school there, college there and drafted by hometown team.

- Nunez went sixth in the 2004 draft, two spots ahead of Clint Dempsey. Nunez was taken two spots after Kansas City took Matt Taylor.

- His last goal for FC Dallas was on July 4, which was also his last game. The goal was a match-winner in a 2-0 win over Chivas USA.

- He didn't play a minute in the playoffs last year.

- He's listed at 5-foot-5, the same height was new teammate Panchito Mendoza.
