Team Chivas’s Big Day


Yesterday was the official inauguration for team Chivas’s new home, Omnilife Stadium.  Sparkling fireworks lit up the sky, magical theatrics preformed by graceful dancers brought splendor to the ceremony, and with intense  fervor Chivas’s new anthem was introduced to the impassioned, and faithfully present fans. As spectacular as the opening ceremony was, the main event was the game that was to truly christen the field, a  Chivas vs Man U friendly.  Not only was the crowd excited to see a match between two awesome teams, but their favorite star “Chicharito”  in a tour de force was set to play a half on each side.  The first half  he played with Chivas, this was a sign of him paying his respects &  honoring: his former team, his home, his family, his  brothers,  his fans. To his people  he wanted to give a most humble, gracious, and  heartfelt “thank you”.  He played with excitement and dedication as always , but something extra was present, because he got one last chance to run alongside his comrades, on their new majestic field, sweat with them and strive  for the red and white.   This was his last game as a Chiva, this was his goodbye….  And he did not leave without a goal for his beloved Chivas.

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.

In our thoughts


Sad news for soccer fans this morning especially for those who are followers of team America(of the Mexican Soccer League). It was reported early this morning that around 5:oo am America’s striker Salvador “Chava” Cabañas had been shot in the head while out at a bar with his wife. He was apparently attacked while visiting the restroom. When brought in to the hospital Mr. Cabañas was still conscious, and was able to answer questions administered to him. He underwent surgery this morning and is said to be in critical condition. He was suffering of heart complications.  As soon as the news broke out, many of his teammates & franchise officials quickly made it to the hospital to offer their support to Chava & his family. Surgeons and specialists have announced that whatever measures or specific procures take place will have to be taken under careful and punctilious consideration, due to the precarious lodging of the  bullet.

“Cabanas is one of Paraguay’s most highly-rated players and was part of their FIFA World Cup™ squad in Germany. The striker, who has scored over 100 times in the Mexican top-flight, has netted 18 goals in 24 matches this season.”- www.fifa.com

This indeed is a heinous act perpetrated on a young man who is a bright talent. Soccer fans everywhere offer our condolences to his family on the occurrence of this horrible,odious ordeal and wish for a full & speedy recovery. May those at fault be brought to justice.
