Happy Day in the Laguna

Last week's smashing of Santos by Monterrey in the vuelta of the Mexican league finals still stings, but it was nice to see the Laguna's favorite son Cristian Mijares bounce back from two years of struggles to win a world title last night. And while the opponent, Juan Alberto Rosas, won't ever draw comparisons with Sugar Ray Robinson, Mijares looked sharper than he has since beating Alexander Muñoz in spring of 2008. It was nice to see.

From the self-promotion department, I wrote a long piece about Mijares in 2008, right as he went to from being one of the pound-for-pound best in the world to being someone about whom we were all asking, What happened to that guy?
