Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Monarcas Morelia: Deep Into the Heart of Mexico

Hear that bell? That is the sound of class in session, Mr. Robbie Keane. On Tuesday, Sept. 13 we are going on a field trip into the heart of Mexico: Morelia and the Estadio Morelia, for a CONCACAF Champions League match between Bruce Arena's Los Angeles Galaxy and Tomas Boy's Monarcas Morelia.

Robbie, on Tuesday you will learn about the caliber of play from one of the most storied teams in Mexico, as well as understand the fiery environment that teams like the U.S. Men's National Team encounter on their forays south of the border.

Urine bags. Chicken heads. The Spanish word for "Whore!" raining out during keeper Donovan Ricketts' goal kicks (although you already know the jist from our good friends from the Angel City Brigade and the L.A. Riot Squad). Those are just a sample of what you will be experiencing at Estadio Morelos.

It will be intimidating. It will be partisan. And it will be one tear-up that is not for the faint of heart.
