We're not really all that interested in the big sportsball tournament going on in the Amazon right now - it's basically foosball played with real people, which makes it just a more athletic version of human chess. Still it's hard not to love the Mexican team, and above all its coach, Miguel Herrera, seen here on the sidelines of a Club America game last year:
If this guy were any more of a national treasure, the Spanish would have looted him.
So by virtue of having defeated sportsball powerhouses Cameroon and Croatia (like we said, we don't really get this sport), El Tri advances to the next round, where they'll face Holland on Sunday. We're wagering heavy on the muchachos. Mexico has a history of clutch victories over the Dutch.
