[LIBERTADORES CUP] Tijuana tied San Jose of Bolivia, 1-1, on the road to clinch a berth in the knockout stage of the Libertadores Cup in the Mexican club's first year in the competition. Neither Joe Corona nor Edgar Castillo played for the Xolos, but their third American, Greg Garza, came on as a late sub.

Fidel Martinez put Tijuana ahead in the 65th minute, but Marcelo Gomez equalized for San Jose with nine minutes to play.

    Just as we typically do not refer to Spain's Copa del Rey as the "King's Cup", we should not refer to South America's Copa Libertadores as the "Libertadores Cup"--it just sounds weird. And, while we're at it, why not mention other important results from yesterday (e.g., Riquelme's Boca Juniors, Ronaldinho's Atletico Mineiro, etc.)? (Maybe I'm still a little upset that you guys neglected to add those games to your "Soccer on TV" schedule for Wed, April 3rd.)

    Andres, your right, those games are defenitely worth watching. We have some of the best teams in the world in South America and also the most underrated.
