Yes this is the first thing you think but Jalisco is not being biased, this is not accurate.
Mexico's national team is ranked 7th in the world and the only country in the top 10 to be moving up.
Chivas, one of their professional teams is among the best sides in the world and is 100% Mexican.

Sure, but that doesn't alter the fact that Flanders is what first comes to mind, and Poirot far outshines everything else I associate with Belgium.

Yes this is the first thing you think but Jalisco is not being biased, this is not accurate.
Mexico's national team is ranked 7th in the world and the only country in the top 10 to be moving up.
Chivas, one of their professional teams is among the best sides in the world and is 100% Mexican.
Think "good at soccer" next time.

well that's why they bad at it... you see mexicans everywhere even i my neighborhood play soccer 24/7 yet they never even come close once to winning the world cup.

Apparently Azimuth has a taste for nudity, so I'll post a couple of ancient Greek porn pictures for him. Perhaps we can start an "ancient porn" thread at the Tavern.
