ASN Morning Read: Mexico Wants Luis Gil Even More
Still reeling from dos a cero parte cuatro, the neighbors to the south let it be known that they would like one of the best American prospects to switch affiliations. Good luck, senores. Elsewhere, other stuff happened.
Mexico is ramping up pursuit of starlet Luis Gil.

Brek Shea, who is once again returning from injury, hopes he'll get into Stoke City's Capitol One Cup match next week. There's a chance he could play on the weekend, but the winger sounds less than hopeful: "It's more likely to have a chance next mid-week at Tranmere than at Arsenal on Sudnay because we've been playing well and why change a winning team."
Former United States national team star goalkeeper Brianna Scurry is struggling to recover from a concussion she suffered in 2010. "She sits alone in her dark apartment for hours on end. She can't get through a day without napping. When she drives to the grocery store, she writes down exactly where she parked her car. When she gets inside the store, she often can't remember why she's there," the USA Today's Christine Brennan writes in the powerful piece.
We laugh, because we can't cry.
All Tim Ream does is deliver assists. (Assist to Soccer Over There.)
Get your shirts now. Seriously.
