Looks like the NFL is becoming addicted to Mexican pesos.
Barely a couple of months after the sold-out face off between the Raiders and the Texans in Mexico City, the NFL on Wednesday said it will return to the Mexican capital in 2017 when the Oakland Raiders will host the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca.
“We have a tremendous fan base in Mexico,” said Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner. “Their passion for football is inspiring, and we look forward to another memorable game in Mexico City between two great teams next season.”
This blogger can only hope the players will have a bit more freedom this time to move around and leave their rooms to do some sightseeing. Or, at the very least, they should be allowed out to do this blogger a favor: Bring back tons of avocados, OKAY?
