Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Luis Fernando Montoya! we are thinking of you..

in one of the saddest episodes i've heard of in a while, Montoya, 45, and the coach of colombian soccer club Once Caldas was shot at least two times while trying to resist two scum that were robbing his wife who had taken out some money from an ATM to buy christmas gifts for poor children.

Montoya this year pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Latin American soccer history by leading unheralded tiny Once Caldas to victory in the continent's club championship the Copa Libertadores de America... they even took down world club giant and personal fave of mine Boca Juniors.... Once Caldas went on to the World Club Cup (the Intercontinental as it is called) final in Tokyo where they just lost to Porto of Portugal on penalties... Montoya resigned after the game...

Montoya is currently in a hospital in Medellin in critical condition. Doctor's have confirmed he is now a quadriplegic.
