Heh, I think

Mediotiempo cartoons skewer the SuperLiga again.
I don't know why the Houston guy isn't in Houston colors, but anyway, he's in the background cheering on Atlante's horse against New England.
But he has selfish motives - "I don't want to go get a million dollars on foot," the Dynamo dude tells Atlante's horsey.
It was only in the previous edition, though, that Pachuca's gopher was very confident. "Houston, you have a problem!" he says to the Houston player (this time in Dynamo colors). "What's that?" responds the Dynamo dude. "You're my client!" says the proud gopher.
It must be said that Houston had certainly lost to Pachuca time and again.
Also, mediotiempo's gallery of the Houston/Pachuca game is great.

I want to see a Houston-New England final. Why? Because that would embarass the MLS suits who claim that this is a "million-dollar" tournament yet won't offer that prize money to any MLS champion.

I'm inclined to think that the FMF (Fornicacion Mexicaca de Futbore)* demanded that if one of its teams wins SuperLiga, that team receive $1 million. I believe that was a non-negotiable demand on the FMF's part; otherwise, this tournament never would have seen the light of day.

*--Sorry, l.b., I couldn't resist. ;D

I also wouldn't be surprised if the FMF received a secret cut off the top if one of its teams won SuperLiga. Again, that was probably another "non-negotiable" demand.

Interesting how the photo gallery shows the Dynamo defending in every shot, except Brad Davis' wayward shot. Makes you wonder how Houston scored two goals.

Mediotiempo had their poll question wrong this morning. they had Atlante facing DC instead of New England.

I could see an all MLS final this year.

Luis says that Mediotiempo says: "I don't want to go on foot for that million dollars."


Actually, what the Dynamo says in Spanish is roughly the English equivalent of "Me no to want go on foot for that millones de dolares."

It would seem that different standards for cultural respect prevail over at Mediotiempo.
