The “Bicentennial Tournament” will simply be the regular Closing Tournament renamed in honor of Mexico’s Bicentennial festivities. As with the end of every championship & eve of every new competition , excitement, mystery, uncertainty, and plenty of anticipation fill the air as talks & decisions for change take place.
*For complete calender of Bicentennial games please see bottom of post.
One of the biggest stories from the draft this time around deals with my beloved golden foot & favorite captain of my dear Chivas : Ramon “Ramoncito” Morales who is going through quite a trying ordeal with the future of his career being in limbo. Ramoncito was completley snubbed by the “Liga de Acenso” (ascending league) during the recent draft. * The Mexican league is dived into 1st division and the afore mentioned league. After tournaments, teams are evaluated & will either qualify to ascend to 1st division or “descend” to the latter. Now many are saying that favorable or not his only two choices are : To remain with Chivas Guadalajara where he has a standing contract or go abroad. The reason why a move was so vital, even if it was to the Acenso league, he will be part of the bench during The “Bicentennial Tournament” & as for the 2010 Interliga(the InterLiga is a football competition between Mexican clubs to determine qualifying spots for that country in South America’s premier club) Chivas will not take part in this tourney & if he remains he will see no play time. At length he was offered a position by Queretaro & the MLS, but Mr. Morales said that it seemed only reasonable & proper for him to go ahead & finish out his current contract with Guadalajara.
*Another notable change affecting Chivas, Adolfo “El Bofo” Bautista after having a very prosperous run with Jaguares (Chiapas) will return to “The sacred flock” (Chivas)
