Just Like He Drew It Up

Nice for Chivas and Mexico fans to see Chicharito net one against Chelsea in the Community Shield (the play in question starts at about 3:00). The coverage of Man U's newest forward has been positively fawning in recent weeks; the Gamecast of the game actually referred to him as a "folk hero".

Incidentally, this goal, which has to be among the ugliest Hernández has ever netted, reflects one of the most worrying aspects of his game: he turns into Lurch on any low cross. If he doesn't get that wrinkle ironed out, the first flubbed cross against Arsenal or Liverpool will probably be the last time we hear the "folk hero" moniker applied to him, at least for a while.
