LOL of the day


This just in: Famous Mexican Soccer League & World cup ref Marco Rodríguez better known to many as “Chiqui Marco” will be releasing his own hair styling product “Chiqui Gel.  “Chiqui Marcos?”(pronunced chee kee)  Where does that come from? For those who don’t know, the nick name is an allusion to the famous Mexican pop culture character “Chiqui Dracula” (baby, little Dracula) played by child star- turned comedian/actor  Carlos “Carlitos” Espejel on 1980’s children’s program “Chiquilladas”.   Why the nick name?  Take a look at this ref and it’s the first thing you’ll notice, there’s no missing it. Mr.Rodríguez’s  extreamly slick  choice of hair style is rather congruent with “Chiqui Dracula’s.”  “Chiqui Marco” doesn’t mind the nick name though,he embraces it, the  persona born from it, and the celebrity that comes along with it.  The gel is a hair product aimed at children, but he says he hopes that a  wide range of people will enjoy his product.  Mr.Rodríguez has confessed to using it himself.  Those working on the product hope to have it in stores all over the country (Mex) very soon.  This begs the question: Will the “Chiqui Marco” hairstyle become a fad???  Lol seriously doubt it. Cool idea for the kiddies though. If I had kids I’d buy them Chuiqui gel, but we’d use it with discretion and measure of course xD  So there it is, your daily scoop of Mexican Pop Culture, and now you’re in the know.

With only 15 minutes on the clock, it was make it or break it time.  It was  Miss  Alina Garciamendez’s equalizer  in the second half  that sealed the deal.  Nigeria often had possession of the ball , but failed to take advantage of vital opportunities. The constant pressure in the form of a relentless and adamant defense by team Mexico lead to many errors by team Nigeria. At 16′ came the first goal of this match when Nigeria’s Ebere Orji nailed a rebound. Things were getting tricky, at halftime Charlyn Corral one of the best on the team (Mex) was substituted by Natalia Gómez Junco.

Later Nigeria would come dangerously close to a second goal, exhaustion and all  Mexican goalie, Santiago pushed the limits of her body and abilities to shut down said would be goal. However, that almost second goal was not the only worry for team Mexico, news that  Japan was beating England meant that the probability of them being eliminated was looming. With agile control of the ball, guard up, and  registering all angles,  team Mexico’s Alina Garciamendez showed everyone that team Mex was hungry and did not want to go home.  The game was called by official Cristina Petersen, team Mexico lead by coach is  Roberto MEDINA. Mexico earned 1st place in its group with 5 points and more goals than second place Nigeria who also earned 5 points, in third was  Japan who had 4 points,  and England came in with 1 pt. Team Mexico’s next rival will be the winner of the USA vs South Korea game.
