Hooray for Cocks!

Soccer season, which ended just a month ago, started up again yesterday! A friend of ours snapped this photo while driving on the highway - it's a litte hard to make out, probably because you're not supposed to be taking pictures on with your cellphone while driving - but then you're definitely not supposed to be doing what the photo depicts, which is a large group of fans of the Querétaro White Cocks standing atop a taxibus, waving team flags while the bus roars down the highway towards the stadium.



We're pretty confident the bus made it all the way without being pulled over, since cops here tend to concentrate their efforts on things like stopping cars because they have Massachusetts plates and interrogating the driver why he's not carrying certain pieces of documentation, the answer to which is unfailingly, "because I am not required to." Which, now that you mention it, happened to us just three days ago.

But we digress. The Cocks may have lost their season opener 0-2 to Club America on the field, but in the critical "Which team's fans stabbed more of the other teams fans to death?" tally, Querétaro triumphed 1-nil. Viva los Cocks!
