    You know, I am anxious to see who we play; but I am not concerned. It is now an eight team race and all teams are worthy. A team that won a group with 12 points is not necessarily better than a team that won a different group with 8.

    I heard that since the Dynamo, Galaxy, and Sounders advanced to the KO stages, they will get bonus allocation money from MLS or is it for the club that goes the furthest.

    Reportedly it is a bonus allocation for all teams that make the stage. By all accounts it isn't much but does start to add up.

    if you're near a cable television you may want to tune into Galavision asap. Chivas has 10 minutes.

    I really thought Metapan was gonna pull off the win too. Would have bumped us into sixth. We can only blame ourselves. We should have won at home.

    Chivas and RSL got the "hand-me-down" spot curse.

    I was hoping for Monterrey. Would have been better for getting a higher price for the tickets next season on StubHub. Not sure how big Santos is in terms of a following in Houston.

    yup. it cost us a home & away against the LA Galaxy. let's hope that Weaver post doesn't come back to haunt us like the Moreno post in 2007.

    Santos has a link to Celtic. Real talk. It appears I have to go just on love of team, opponent respect for Euro heritage respect n of course CCL road away fixture.

    I get to walk around with a 6 foot Irish guy in Torreon? Just watching the tower that you are will scare everybody away. Now if we can convince JC507 to go with his epic beard, we'll be a sight in the middle of Torreon. Haha.

    Torreon is actually not that far from Houston (when you hit Monterrey, hang a right). closer than El Paso distance wise, buuuuuuut.......

    FYI, It's cheaper to fly into MTY - $350 vs $550 in Torreon. Get a group, share a rental, a 4 hr drive, just saying...

    I just saw that. I guess the question is does risking your life in a 4 hour drive worth $200? Hahahaha...the experience of surviving would be epic! lol

    ....around $450 per person with car rental and round trip, and that's only for two people. Since at the moment I just found one crazy mofo that's really into it. dmcduff is that insane guy. Hahaha.

    Driving through Mexico right now is an adventure. 50/50 chance you'll make it to Torreon.

    Great News: We get Santos, in March!

    Bad News: We get Santos, in March!


    It probably doesn't really matter when we play them but playing them in March is not going to help our already slim chances.
