La noticia que nunca hubiéramos querido dar.
Christian Gómez nos confirmo que tomo la decisión de retirarse del futbol. #AtraccionVyN pic.twitter.com/T5yxTqW8J4
There is a question mark at the end of my sentence because Gomez did this a couple of months ago, and his son had to deny it online. As of late Sunday, no tweet, no retraction, so...this may be it?
Anyway, that’s a way to end a Monday. Stay cool, and/or hydrated.
