Sin Cenicienta

Obscured and ignored before ascending to great heights, the story is as old as time. The little one rises up against the odds and assumes a place among the elite.

In sports, we love the Cinderella story. It’s like pulling for the underdog, but so much more. To be a true Cinderella, it must be one that truly has no reason to aspire to greatness. Their victory should seem preposterous.  

Winners, Losers, and Lost: Week 3 - A14

A Family Affair: The Idiosyncratic Eight Liga MX Liguilla Teams

Family gatherings are special for many reasons. Time away from those you hold dear can be tough. The times when everyone can come together are some of our most treasured moments. It's also a time to remember that insanity abounds. The peculiarities of family know no bounds.

The Liguilla is in many ways a coming together of a diverse bunch. These eight characters now meet again to decide one victor. How exactly it is going to go down is anyone's guess, but it will surely be entertaining.

League leaders Cruz Azul strengthened their hold on first place in the Liga MX, as a clinical 1-0 victory over second-placed Toluca saw them extend their advantage to six points.

Higher Education and Jornada 4

When a league sends nearly half its teams into a playoff to determine its champion it's a little silly to get too worked up about any one match. With the away goal rule recently creeping its way in to the Liguilla, the only advantage to higher seeds is hosting the second leg and having the second tiebreaker in the first two rounds (so, basically nothing). Finish in the top eight and you have a chance.

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.

Yet, it's the time for reflection and glossing over the past twelve months in a holiday cookie-fueled haze. So without further ado, I give you the best and the worst of Mexican soccer 2013 ...
