I went back and looked at some of the older posts, and noticed that in my post about Jason Rose’s Twitter feed I referred to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez as Hugo Sánchez. I went back and checked out Rose’s Twitter page just to see if I could blame him for my mistake, but no dice.
Sánchez is, of course, a former standout for UNAM and Real Madrid, and did a stint as coach for the Mexican national team. As Gilberto Zaragoza will tell you, Sánchez is the best player North America has ever produced. He also is one of three players to have the distinction of playing both in NASL and MLS. He also is an occasional pitchman for Allstate. I saw him play once at, of all places, Arizona Stadium when he was playing for Austrian club FC Linz back in 1995.
No word on whether Dana Kennedy is going to visit “Hu-Gol” to raise money.
Before any of y’all jump on me for this mistake, I’d like to point out that none of you caught it either.
