    Ah, if only it said San Fransisco and not Santa Cruz de la Sierra on that birth certificate!

    We may see another player hit the century mark in goals and/or assists in MLS but I doubt we’ll see it done with the verve, grace and sheer artistry that JM99 did it with.

    The most remarkable thing about him is the way he reinvented himself for his second tour of duty with DCU. Losing pace is an inevitability for almost all athletes but when you have a footballing brain like Moreno’s it’s almost a blessing in disguise when creativity starts to trump athleticism. Just ask Matt Reis about the 2004 Eastern final.

    I’m not one to gush over individual players but this is a well earned exception. Gracias, Jaime. It was an honor and a priviliege.
