LAS VEGAS – They stood in the foyer of the buffet restaurant at the extravagant Mandalay Bay Hotel, waiting for a pause in the conversation so they could swoop in for a photo.
Herculez Gomez shot a glance at the smiling fans, wearing the green and white of Santos Laguna, the 2012 Clausura champions crowned in May. He politely asked them, in Spanish, to wait until he was done with the interview.
That Gomez, home in Vegas over the weekend to play in Santos Laguna’s friendly against Real Madrid, even had a few minutes to do a one-on-one interview was almost a miracle. There was family to see, appearances to make, routines to stick to, meetings and of course droves of adoring fans who wanted to able to say they kicked it with a Liga MX (Mexican First Division) star forward.
