    Congratulations to the boys making the trip to Guadalajara! However, selecting Tim Vom Steeg's son, smacks of favoritism by Schellcheidt, but knowing the innder workings of the coaching "fraternity" on the men's/boy's sides, it doesn't surprise me as it seems to be deeply ingrained in this soccer fraternity. Now let's see what they'll be able to do, and hopefully I just wager that some could be picked up by Mexican pro teams?
