Congratulations Mexico U-17 Soccer team
10 July 2011 | Marina Cantina
Sooo since I've been in San Carlos I've been catching parts of the U-17 boys world cup soccer tournament. I actually didn't realize that it was the U-17 until just now. I decided, after Mexico just beat Uruguay to win the championship, that I would get all the facts before posting this blog. I was SHOCKED that these were kids that were playing. Both the level of play and the excitement of the Mexican fans had lead me to believe that this was the Mexican National team. Whenever they played the cantinas were packed with yelling, screaming, fist pounding fans. It has been fun watching the team play and now that I know that they are the same age that I watched my own daughters play just a few years ago...makes it even more exciting. So congratulations to the Champions and also to the other teams that also displayed a huge amount of talent.
Ohh...and I guess I better start paying more attention to the world of Football...
