¿Dónde está la biblioteca?

USMNT Jonathan Bornstein, the guy who begs to flatter on the left for the US, the guy every Honduran loves, is going to Mexico. And by Mexico, we don't mean Cancun or Puerto Vallarta. And no, this is not some crazy bender talk of a guy on a run south of the border for some quick fix in Tiajuana. Believe me, I checked.

Nope, after the 2010 season in MLS (technically starting Jan. 1st 2011), Chivas USA defender Jonathan Bornstein will be moving to the Mexican Primera Division with UNAL Tigres in Monterrey. The interesting thing is that Bornstein's mother is Mexican so he won't count against the foreign player limit on Tigres.

Now I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is a slight move up for Bornstein. I know, it sounds crazy and all, but while the league tends to appear a bit rougher than MLS, we do have our fair share of hacks here and there are arguably better and younger players on the way up there (as opposed to older ex-UEFA retirees coming to MLS) so we know he'll face strong competition.

Either way, Bornstein is at least showing that he's willing to put himself out there against new challenges. This can only serve to help the USMNT in the near future.
