Mayagüez, PR: So once again I was driven to attend a second basketball game here in Mayagüez after learning that they were going to host the Guayama Brujos. The deal is this, though Mayagüez is the closest town to my second home, Cabo Rojo and my favorite “go to town” I was born in the town of Guayama. I also remember attending several exciting Brujo games when a friend, who owned the team back then.
So here I was yesterday surrounded by two friends, José “Bebo” Avellanet my fixer and friend who lives in Mayagüez and Miguel Santiago who is in Puerto Rico for some business. Miguel is not from Mayagüez, but I guess he liked everything he has seen so far in this visit and also decides to root for Los Indios de Mayagüez. I’m sandwiched between them and decided to root for my ancestral birth place, Guayama Brujos.
The game started out fine, very competitive, but after halftime, the Indios unleashed all the fury and skill that made them come back from a season losing the first seven games of the season to turning around and being in the race for a playoff spot.
Below is an article from ENDI.com on the details of the game. It was translated and edited for you, our loyal followers. Enjoy
