Tijuana's Xolos won the Mexican equivalent of the Super Bowl tonight

Tijuana's major-league soccer team, the Xoloitzcuintles, won Mexico's equivalent of the Super Bowl tonight. Incredible.

No one on this side of the border can pronounce the team's name (and we just call them the Xolos -- pronounced alternatively as sholos or cholos -- on both sides of the border) but I can. Just say these English words fast: Show-low-eats-QUEENT-lace. There, that wasn't so hard.

And it's true, the team is named after a hairless dog.
