Team Chivas’s Big Day


Yesterday was the official inauguration for team Chivas’s new home, Omnilife Stadium.  Sparkling fireworks lit up the sky, magical theatrics preformed by graceful dancers brought splendor to the ceremony, and with intense  fervor Chivas’s new anthem was introduced to the impassioned, and faithfully present fans. As spectacular as the opening ceremony was, the main event was the game that was to truly christen the field, a  Chivas vs Man U friendly.  Not only was the crowd excited to see a match between two awesome teams, but their favorite star “Chicharito”  in a tour de force was set to play a half on each side.  The first half  he played with Chivas, this was a sign of him paying his respects &  honoring: his former team, his home, his family, his  brothers,  his fans. To his people  he wanted to give a most humble, gracious, and  heartfelt “thank you”.  He played with excitement and dedication as always , but something extra was present, because he got one last chance to run alongside his comrades, on their new majestic field, sweat with them and strive  for the red and white.   This was his last game as a Chiva, this was his goodbye….  And he did not leave without a goal for his beloved Chivas.
