Tomorrow, after working at a college fair for four hours, I’m attending the so-called “El clásico capitalino” between Club América and Club Universidad Nacional. I can’t see it being as visceral as going to Azteca last year–the game’s at the Estadio Olímpico Universitario–but a local derby in one of the world’s biggest cities will surely be one hell of an occasion. It’s been a busy week thus far; Wednesday, for instance, began at 3:45am in Calgary and didn’t end till just before midnight in Mexico City after I’d finished watching the greatest-ever final day in Major League Baseball history. More updates later!
