Mexico's team also loved up north

There are a couple of reasons why Chivas Guadalajara is Mexico's most beloved soccer team.

For one, Chivas has won 11 titles In Liga MX, the country's top league.

The other was apparent Tuesday night at Miller Park.

After a workout in preparation for Wednesday night's friendly against Swansea City of the English Premier League, every Chivas player signed autographs for several thousand adoring fans who watched the spirited training session.

"As you can see, we have a lot of fans who follow us," said Chivas general manager Francisco "Paco" Palencia, a former Olympian who was one of Mexico's most popular players.

More than 30,000 fans are expected for the exhibition match, and many will side with Chivas.

"It will feel like home," Palencia said. "All these people are huge fans of us. Mostly the fans follow us on TV. Now, we can show them our game."

So what would be Chivas' American counterpart on the popularity scale?

"It's like the Cowboys and the Yankees," goalie Antonio Rodriguez said. "And the Packers. Say hello to Aaron Rodgers for me."

Chivas is the country's only team to exclusively field Mexican players. Midfielder Carlos Salcido is a multiple World Cup performer. Forward Omar Bravo recently played for Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer.

An international friendly such as Chivas and Swansea means that the match will not include overtimes. The pitch has been squeezed to 66 yards wide inside the baseball stadium — about 14 yards narrower than optimum — and might have impact on passing. Forecasts call for temperatures from the mid-50s to the low 60s and the roof will be open unless it rains.

Rodriguez reported no problems with the temporary turf that covers the infield.

"It's a beautiful field," he said. "It's going to be no problem. The field is definitely great."

As for the level of competition, Palencia said Chivas would play its starters and treat the exhibition, which is sanctioned by MLS, seriously because its regular season begins Sunday.

"Both teams are going to take it seriously," he said. "We're here to play a serious game. It's important to make all these people enjoy the game."

Swansea City, the first Welsh team to join the Premier League, opens its season on Aug. 16 against Manchester United.

"It's one of the best teams in England," Rodriguez said. "We know the league in England is a great league. It's one of the best in the world. It's going to be a nice match for us."

Chivas is winding down a five-city U.S. tour that will take them twice to Los Angeles before returning to Guadalajara.

"We are one of the most popular teams in America," Rodriguez said. "That's a blessing coming from God."

Swansea City trained in Chicago for the last week. The Swans, who practiced Tuesday morning at Marquette, will play Minnesota United of the North American Soccer League later this week before returning to England.

The effervescent Rodriguez said he was familiar with the Brewers' home field from afar.

"It's beautiful," he said. "I love baseball. I watch this stadium and the Brewers on TV."

So he's a Brewers fan?

"I'm a Yankees fan, but nobody wants to know that here in Milwaukee," he said.

chivarecordarIt was part of the team at that time. It was not the owner, but lived the intoxicating joy of success. Apertura 2006 Tournament and looks away. The evening of December 10 that Sunday is a reminder tattooed with gold ink. Nostalgia is inevitable. So Patricio Araujo wants to relive old times. Dreaming of a new title in the Sacred Flock.

"It's something we already have well seen, I have knowledge of the system. Thank God I adapted and I want to continue as a starter. I still remember those days of 2006, if we had this December (winning a title), hopefully we get the next tournament to feel the same, that is the championship, "sentence" The Duck ".

To achieve this, Chivas has done what he had much time doing: recruiting players. The total bet by the basic forces has pushed aside. Before the last tournament, Rafael Marquez Lugo arrived and Luis Ernesto Perez. Now incorporated Miguel Sabah, Sergio "Cherokee" Perez and Adrian Cortes.

So, Araujo sees a more competitive squad. Trust in the speedy recovery of the injured Marquez Lugo and ensures that the Atletico box has enough arguments to compete in the near and Clausura 2013.

"Hopefully Rafa is recovered as soon as possible, healthy. We must take advantage of the addition of reinforcements, to serve in the spirit of the team to cope with all the commitments, "he explains.

Now, the Sacred Flock prepares for next tournament. He has faced two-up game with wins against Cowboys Ixtlan, Second Division (4-0) and Estudiantes de Altamira, the League of Ascent (2-0). Wanted suitable pace to begin the football season.

Saturday will have a new commitment, again against an opponent of the League of Ascent. Necaxa will, according to Patricio Araujo, a demanding test to know the true level where Guadalajara is located.

"It will be a rival of First Division, is a team that fights the rise and will be a good test to see if we are already at an optimum level to start the tournament because it's the last matches of preparation," says .

"I think the team and must show how it will start playing and especially win. Altamira was a tough opponent and now Necaxa is somewhat similar to a Premier League squad, it has experienced people, "concludes Atletico midfielder.


"Cherokee", with alternates

After joining the Sacred Flock work, strengthening Sergio "Cherokee" Perez participated Thursday in his first intrasquad game. The Dutch coach John van't Schip placed it with the alternate box, because this is just his second day with Chivas.

The idea, however, is that the now former Monterrey player, just play the World Cup, is unmoved by the holder the right sideline, then tell the directors and the coach himself, is the footballer "ideal" sought for the position.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.- With the “Chase to Copacabana” over, it is now the “fight for finals” for the men’s players on the international Beach Volleyball circuit as the leaderboard is taking shape to determine which teams will qualify for the mid-September SWATCH FIVB World Tour Finals.

The SWATCH FIVB World Tour Finals, which offers the richest first-place purses in international history with $100,000 awarded to the men’s and women’s winners, will be played September 8-13 at a site to be announced in the coming weeks. The top eight-ranked pairs per gender from the international circuit plus two “wild cards” will advance to the event with a maximum of two teams per country.

With three-plus events left before the September finale, excluding the Rio 2016 Olympic Games where points are not rewarded, the $800,000 Porec Major is the 18th of 21 men’s event on the 2015-2016 FIVB World Tour schedule with the final three stops featuring “big-point” tournaments in Switzerland (Gstaad, July 5-10), Austria (Klagenfurt, July 26-31) and the United States (Long Beach, August 23-28).

Entering play here Friday at the Porec Major, only one of the 10 teams that participated in the 2015 SWATCH FIVB World Tour Finals in the United States on Fort Lauderdale beach ln south Florida is ranked among the top eight pairs on the 2015-2016 FIVB World Tour ranking list. Points to determine the 2016 field began last October with the Puerto Vallarta Open in Mexico where Americans Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena topped the men’s podium.

As a “wild card” entry in Fort Lauderdale, Dalhausser and Lucena are the only team from the 2015 SWATCH FIVB World Tour Finals men’s field ranked among the top-eight teams on the 2015-2016 international points list with 4,110 points. The Americans trail Poland’s Piotr Kantor/Bartosz Losiak (4,640 points) and Adrian Carambula/Alex Ranghieri of Italy (4,580). All three teams are competing this week in the Porec Major and started pool play Thursday by winning their first two matches each.

Alison Cerutti and Bruno Oscar Schmidt of Brazil, who defeated Dalhausser and Lucena in two sets last October in Fort Lauderdale to win the $100,000 first-place prize, are currently 14th on the 2015-2016 FIVB World Tour ranking list with 3,140. The Brazilians are within striking distance of moving into the top eight as the No. 7 (Markus Bockermann/Lars Fluggen, Germany, 3,450 points) and No. 8 (Youssef Krou/Edouard Rowlandson, France, 3,290) are not competing this week in the Porec Major.

Grzegorz Fijalek/Mariusz Prudel of Poland (3,280 points), Adrian Gavira/Pablo Herrera of Spain (3,160), Alexander Brouwer/Robert Meeuwsen of The Netherlands (3,150), Ben Saxton/Chaim Schalk of Canada (3,000) and Evandro Goncalves/Pedro Solberg of Brazil (2,850) are also competing in the Porec Major and in position to move into the top eight spots on the 2015-2016 FIVB World Tour ranking list.


All, except for Fijalek and Prudel, competed in the 2015 SWATCH FIVB World Tour Finals. Evandro and Pedro defeated Brouwer and Meeuwsen for the Fort Lauderdale bronze medal. After Fort Lauderdale last October in Puerto Vallarta, Brouwer and Meeuwsen started their 2015-2016 international campaign by placing second to Dalhausser and Lucena in the Mexican event.

Proud Canadian fondly recalls his time on senior men’s national baseball team

Three years ago, Chris Bisson helped his baseball team win Pan Am gold as Canada defeated the United States 2-1 at the Pan Am Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Despite no longer being an active baseball player, Mr. Bisson has carried over his skills on the diamond and his enthusiasm to being a volunteer promoting the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. He was on hand in Toronto on Sept. 15 to help launch the ticket opening for the Games.

“I’m doing my best to be a key part (of the Games),” he said.

Mr. Bisson still has fond memories of Canada’s victory three years ago. He was videotaping his teammates with a hand-held camera when the final out was recorded and he admitted to watching the clip over and over since the victory.

“It was just amazing. To hear the chants for Canada was phenomenal,” he said in describing the moments after he dropped the camera and joined his teammates in celebration on the field.

An arm injury while playing in the San Diego Padres farm system forced him to retire from baseball in 2013. He finished his degree and now works as a kinesiologist for the Centre de Santé Communautaire in Welland.

The 24 year old said he’d love to be able to play for Team Canada again but “the arm’s just not in it anymore.”

Looking at the Canadian men’s senior national team, though, he said he’s excited for the players as they set out to defend their gold medal “on home turf.”

Looking back at his experiences in Guadalajara, Mr. Bisson admitted he didn’t expect to play as much as he did. It was his first time on the senior team and he was hoping to contribute any way he could.

“I didn’t think I was going to have such a big role,” he said.

That said he was encouraged by the returning players who had experience playing at the international level against some of the world’s best baseball teams.

“The older guys were good role models. It’s really all about team chemistry,” Bisson said.

It’s that chemistry, that love of the game, of country and the pursuit of excellence that sets the Pan Am Games apart from the big leagues, Mr. Bisson explained. He said when you’re playing professionally it’s all about making it to the “show”. Players never know when they’re going to get cut or traded. For them, “It’s all about getting to the major leagues,” he said.

Playing for Canada at the Pan Am Games was like playing in school when he was at the University of Kentucky: it was all about pride.

“I love the team aspect,” he said. “When you play for Canada you’re not playing for the name on the back of the jersey, you’re playing for the name on the front. You play for your country. It’s the biggest honour.”

His advice to all athletes heading to next summer’s Pan Am Games and the Parapan Am Games is to “soak it all in.”

He said the baseball and softball facilities in Ajax look great. Couple that with the best players in the world playing on those fields and the experience for the fans should be incredible.

“There’s great young talent that’s going to be there,” he said.

And don’t be surprised to see a few players at the Pan Am Games end up in Major League Baseball. There are a few players from the 2011 Pan Am Games playing in the big leagues today including Toronto Blue Jay’s pitcher Todd Redmond who played for the United States in the last Pan Am Games. Mr. Bisson fondly remembers knocking a double off the wall on one of his pitches.

“Canada has build such a good program (baseball). Player development is improving, kids are exposed to so much more,” he said.

The Toronto2015 Pan Am Games run from July 10 to 26. Softball and baseball take place at the President’s Choice Ajax Pan Am Ballpark while Oshawa hosts weight-lifting and boxing at the GM Centre. The Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games run from Aug. 7 to 15. Whitby hosts judo and boccia at the Abilities Centre.

cruzazul-toluca-matchOne of the aims of Cruz Azul will be to nullify the Paraguayan goal maker Pablo César Velázquez, although the work itself should be centered in the whole group.

For its quarter-final series one of the aims of Cruz Azul will be to nullify the Paraguayan goal maker Pablo César Velázquez, although the work itself should be centered in the whole group, commented the defense Julio César “Cata” Domínguez.

Velázquez was the goal champion of the regular phase in what is his first season in the Mexican soccer, and what was a fundamental piece so that Diablos Rojos could remain as the most conclusive offensive of the contest, for which in La Máquina they have worked these two weeks to stop the rival attack.

“More than studying him, we need to study the whole team, because they all play, they all complement each other and he is the one who scores. We have to try to do our job which is the solidity and the order to counter them, who are the team with most goals and with a goal maker, but we have to play the soccer that has given us (results) lately”, he said in a press conference.

In quarter-finals it will be the first occasion that Cruz Azul confronts Velázquez, as in their regular campaign meeting, The Machine won 2-1 in a day that was contested without national team players and the Paraguayan was focused in his national team for the FIFA Date that was then contested.

“The tournament was an even game, the victory was also due to the block of Memo (Alison, when he stopped a penalty from Juan Carlos Cacho), otherwise it would have been a tie. That gave us confidence because we won, but this is the league tournament, and it is a different game”.

The reserve player considers his team to be strong, both on the defensive as in the attack for the two confrontations against the team of Toluca. “For me the two (are strong points of the team), the defensive as well as the offensive, I think that we have very good forwards, that maybe have not connected very well, but what has taken us to the league tournament is the solidity of everything. I think that we received fewer goals in the past tournament and that gives us (security)”.

Domínguez expressed that he feels that the team is prepared to confront Toluca, after the week of special work that they did in Avándaro and with the arrival today of the national team players Luis Amaranto Perea (Colombian) and Joao Robin Rojas (Ecuadorian).

“The truth is that going to Avándaro was very helpful to us, this week was very good for us in soccer and today we already played soccer with the national players and I felt that the team was well, so now it is necessary to do our job to be able to return peacefully”.
