Suns and Sixers Headed to Mexico

For a preseason game, that is: ”In an Oct. 18 preseason game, the Sixers will play the Phoenix Suns in Monterrey, Mexico. This game will be the NBA’s second game held in Monterrey — at Arena Monterrey – and the 18th game in Mexico, the most held in any country outside the U.S. and Canada. The game is being called NBA Mexico Game 2009… ‘We’re thrilled about the opportunity to bring some of the NBA’s most exciting teams and accomplished players to Monterrey,’ said NBA Senior Vice President of International Development and Partnerships Emilio Collins, in a press release. ‘Our fans in Mexico are some of the most passionate in the world, and this year’s NBA Mexico Game is sure to provide them with an unforgettable NBA experience. Fans in Mexico are some of the most passionate in the world, and this year’s NBA Mexico Game is sure to provide them with an unforgettable NBA experience.’”

    This is shady stuff! Monterrey is the place they just arrested 13 high ranking sleaze bags from some drug cartel… Police chiefs are getting rubbed out left and right. As a Phoenician, I’m a little apprehensive about this particular pre-season game.

    Question: Do the NBA’s goons have AK-47′s? Because these guys do… Tons of ‘em.

    **Ken – In lieu of all that, I gotta admit: That was a good one.

    Yejjj! Nice, nice, nice! Really happy about this one…

    @MikeF
    I live in Monterrey for more than a year now. Did not see a single AK47. There are drug cartells here, true. But it is not like they govern this city. LA is a more dangerous place to be than Monterrey, believe me.
