Chivas Vs. America 2011: Atmosphere Building Outside Stadium

There`s no game like Chivas Vs. America in Mexico and no other game that garners the same amount of hype. That`s why it is THE clasico.

Fans started arriving early at the stadium today to get their barbeques going, drink a few beers and generally be merry in the boiling hot Guadalajara sun. Fans come from all over the United States and Mexico to see the game.

In Mexico, Chivas vs. America is more of an occasion than a game. The country will shut down at 6 p.m. local time and there will be many, many sore heads tomorrow. Let`s hope that events on the pitch live up to the hype off it.
