Forgive me if this preview of Mexico's 2012 men's Olympic soccer team feels giddy.
It's only because I'm, well, giddy—giddy about Mexico's budding talent pool, giddy about its potential overage selections, giddy about its chances to become the first ever North American men's team to medal at the Olympics.*
Part of the fun comes in sifting through all the hopefuls and deciding who among them will wear the national colors in London. That's what we're after in this exercise, as we run through the projected Mexican roster and take a look at Mexico's chances this summer.
*There is a slight caveat. A team representing Christian Brothers College High School in St. Louis, Missouri finished second at the 1904 games. Only three teams competed.
