Episode 2: Bicultural Fandom

In episode 2 Mario and Manny are joined by Tijuana/San Diego sports beat writer and Football fan, Daniel Iglesias, to talk about cross border fandom and Mario’s greener grass syndrome issues. What’s inside the Trojan horse of fandom crossing the Mexico/USA gate for Xolos and Chargers? Is Mexico’s bourgeoning interest in Football something new or has it been a historically attentive market of fans waiting for the NFL to pay attention to them? Who is psychologically bankrolling the Mexican National team’s storied push to the quarter-finals (quinto partido) at the World Cup?
