Lips and Elbows

We here at the Rag are sure that you all, our numerous readers, are just as fired up about Cuauhtemoc Blanco coming to the Chicago Fire as we are. Yes, soccer fans, now the Tepito terror, the Downton D.F. pitbull, is coming to the states. Here's what he told the fans at the time of the announcement:

I am very happy and will give 100 percent for Chicago to be in the final. I look forward to working with this group of players to bring a championship to Chicago, a community that has always supported me, in good times and in bad times. I hope to bring great satisfaction to all of you.

The only satisfaction Blanco knows how to bring involes a fist and your grill. Put simply, Cuauhty takes no guff. He'll kill a fool is another way of saying that. He got suspended for a year once for clocking a guy after a loss in a home game, provoking an enormous brawl between players and fans. Here's the tape:

And if that didn't get you excited, then the results of yesterday's Gold Cup game between Mexico and Honduras, which Mexico embarassingly lost, 2-1, will. Cuauhty, evidently pissed at the way things were going in a tight 1-1 game, reacts poorly to some affectionate teasing and, boom goes the dynamite. Cuauhtemoc gets the red and Mexico loses on a last
minute goal. Nice work, Blanco:

Not sure about you, but here at the Rag, we can't wait to cover his antics. Maybe he'll get in a fistfight with Beckham. We're got a correspondant lined up to cover his every word come July.

Bienvenido, Cuahtemoc!

This is just, well, I don't know what it is. Silly?
