Well, He Won't be Running Off To Mexico Anymore

After this Wednesday's World Cup Qualifier against Canada, Cuahtemoc Blanco announced his retirement from the Mexican National Team. That means he won't be missing anymore Fire games for callups, which is good news for Fire fans. It also means the end of one of the most storied Mexican National Team careers ever. Check out this excellent article from Sports Illustrated to get a sense of it.
