nah, the Ellipse, between WH and Wash Monument. MWF at 1245 if you're free.

That was a costly late penalty miss by Leo Lopez for Pachuca. They are currently just outside the playoffs in 9th place w 2 games remaining. If they had won last night they'd be in 7th place (ahead of Cruz Azul & America) and be in pretty solid position.

Mediotiempo's Group standings (top 2 in each group and next best 2 overall make the Liguilla):

The end of Mexico's Clausura season and the Liguilla playoffs will be strange as somthing like 17 players have been called in for El Tri's World Cup camp and won't be available to their teams (Chivas has the most).

@troy: too far to the Ellipse, I'm afraid. The field at Pentagon Row is a 3 minute walk. I hope to get out there starting next week.

OT: I'm looking forward to going to the stadium on Saturday. I love the Pietasters, and it'll be good to get out and support our team. They certainly need a 12th man.

Perhaps the FO needs to listen to the Pietasters more:

I've stopped watching the Mexican League since my team Chivas aint going anywhere in the playoffs.

Title is Monterrey's for the taking. Maybe Cruz Azul if they can finally stop choking.

@OWNTF: I'm sure you know this, or dread this, but I'm sure someone would answer you in the RSL forums on Big Soccer. I found fairly quality info posting a question on the Railhawks forum when I was visiting Raleigh a couple weeks ago.
