It is unthinkable in American sports. Could you imagine the Houston Rockets, the New York Yankees or the Houston Astros opening their stadium up for free to fill it purely in the name of winning and getting a result?
Won’t happen but if it did what a great marketing tool for an NBA, NFL or MLB team.
Pachuca has done this for tonite’s game against the Houston Dynamo, this is about advancement and Pachuca is not worried about money at this point. That will come later if they advance against the Dynamo.
What a great move from Pachuca and what a statement…………a statement of respect for an MLS team the Houston Dynamo.
Now that is respect.
PS: Hats off to DC United for handling themselves wonderfully in Guadalajara after their 2-1 loss to Chivas. Players out of respect shook the hands of Chivas players. The same might not have been said for Pachuca in Houston after their loss a few weeks ago. The performance from DC reminds us that the two leagues are getting closer and closer together.
