The Best and Worst of Mexican Soccer 2013

It was a great year if you support Mexico's most popular club team. It was pretty terrible, otherwise. El Tri was an abomination. Club America were the most successful club team and then managed to parlay that into a national team coup d'état. It was ugly.

If Mexican league fans learned anything this year, it’s that everything has a price. We are more than used to jerseys smattered with more sponsors than a race car.

The first leg of the Liga MX final played out last night in Tijuana. For many, the end result was very much the expected. Tijuana came out with a 2-1 victory on their home field and will take their one goal advantage to the second leg in Toluca on Sunday. The end result might have been expected, but how it came to pass was a little out of left field.

With America's win over Leon, Las Aguilas seem primed to make a run at another title. To complete the perfect symmetry, I picked up this torta at a place called Antojos de Leon.
