I turned on that Copa MX semifinal last night when it was already almost at the end of regulation. Then, realizing that it went straight to penalties after that, I kept watching in hopes that Jonathan Bornstein would get to take, and make, the winning penalty. It ended up going NINE rounds before Queretaro won. But no Bornstien penalty. So I guess he must be one of their 2 least trusted penalty takers. Oh well.
