The Biggest Name in American Soccer, Today™: Joe Corona

Joe

Y'all know about Joe Corona? No? Neither do I. Apparently he's some San Diego kid who plays for the club with the most unwieldy name in Mexican futbol, Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles De Caliente. Never heard of them either? I could see that but since they have a hairless dog as a mascot and what appear to be out-of-work roller derby chicks as cheerleaders you might want to get down.

Also you'll probably want to keep an eye on them so that you can speak half-assed intelligently in your messageboard rant about how Joe Corona must be capped NOW because if he's good enough for Bruce Arena, he's good enough for Bob Bradley.

But at the very least he's good enough to be the guy you didn't know on Wednesday but was national team-worthy on Thursday due to the magical, instant-expectation generating powers of the interwebs; call him the American Raheem Sterling.

My 10 year long search for a Mexican club team to support is finally over!

Vamos Xoloitzcuintles (Zo-lo-eets-kweent-lez?) Whatever. I'm hooked.

I've heard of them before. They actually run (or at one time did run) a charter bus from San Diego to the Stadium in T.J. It sounds like a pretty sweet deal, they pick you up in S.D. take you across the border (they have some kind of expedited border crossing thing, so it probably only takes half a day as opposed to a whole day to get across ;-). ) They shuttle you right into the stadium set you up in a specific section with your fellow border crossing fans, then once the game's done, they shuttle you back to good ol' California.

The Galaxy sure looked like shite in that game last night. And the Angel City Brigade proved to be a group of fucking imbeciles.

Fuck yes I've heard of them. I have been pulling for them to make it to the first Division for the past couple of years. TJ roadtrip to see America play twice a year!
