“Chicharito is an outstanding player,” Yon de Luisa, the president of the Mexican Football Federation, told CNN.”He’s the Mexican national team’s leading scorer historically and I am sure he is going to have an outstanding participation here in LA.”He’s going to develop a magnificent rivalry against Carlos Vela, who is his friend, and they will be playing head-to-head in this civil war in LA,” added De Luisa, referring to Hernandez’s Mexican international teammate who plays for rival Los Angeles FC.”I really think it’s going to be a good thing for the city, for MLS and for us as well to have Chicharito closer to the national team.”

The move from the European league to the North American league was not an easy decision for Chicharito.

In an emotional video that is going around social media, Chicharito calls his parents and talks to them about his decision to move to MLS. During the call, the global soccer star breaks down in tears telling his parents about his journey in making the decision.

“It’s the start of the process of retiring, you know,” Chicharito said in the emotional video. When his dad pushes back, Chicharito says, “No, no, Dad, but what I want…I’m saying goodbye – and we’re saying goodbye – to a career in which we worked a lot and I know you guys feel it as well and we’re going to see the positive side and it’s going to be amazing. But if we want it or not, we’re now retiring from the European dream.”

The video is a touching and humble reminder that the superheroes we see on the field are people just like the rest of us.

We’ve all been there before. There is something so grounding and necessary about calling your parents when you need advice or are going through a hard time. We’ve all cried to our parents about different issues throughout our lives. Who doesn’t have a memory of crying to their parents over a hard decision and feeling better after the phone call?

Fans in Los Angeles couldn’t wait to welcome Chicharito to his new city and team.

Chicharito stans learned when he was arriving at Los Angeles International Airport so they showed up and gave him a hero’s welcome. For those of you who have ever traveled in and out of LAX you know how hard it is to get in and out of the airport with the traffic. That just goes to show how much Chicharito is truly loved by those who have followed his career.

Some fans are just happy that Chivas’s loss is their gain.

It is kind of incredible that the Mexican soccer team hasn’t tried harder to bring back one of the best players. Perhaps there isn’t enough money or Chicharito just doesn’t feel like going back just yet.

Welcome to Los Angeles, Chicharito. We are happy to have you!

Who’s excited to see Chicharito play in L.A.?

Covid-19 has forced families to figure out the best way to make enough to take care of things. Some have had to find new jobs after being laid off and having to make up enough to save their families. A young boy in Los Angeles is doing that to help his mom makes ends meet.

Meet Aaron and his garden.

The young boy and his mother were on their last $12 when he had an idea of creating a business. According to a GoFundMe account, the young boy convinced his undocumented mother to start a business selling plants to help them make it through the pandemic.

Aaron’s Garden was the business he and his mom created to make some money.

“Aaron and mom have been struggling from being homeless to shelters and bouncing from house to house and now live in a shed,” reads a GoFundMe account. “He came out with the idea of selling plants and starting a business in his yard to be a provider and buy his own hot Cheetos with cheese without having to ask his mom for money.”

Aaron advertises his plants and when you can buy them on his Instagram.

Aaron’s plant selling is helping his family during one of the most difficult times in modern U.S. history.

Way to go, Aaron.

Series Of Earthquakes Shake LA And People Still Act Surprised

Series Of Earthquakes Shake LA And People Still Act Surprised

If there is one thing that everyone knows about Southern California is that you should expect earthquakes. They are as unique and predictable to Southern California as hurricanes in Florida. Yet, three earthquakes this morning shook Southern California to some surprise.

2020 has been one crazy year and for Angelenos, July ended with a bang.

Three earthquakes, one being a 4.2 centered in Pacoima, shook Southern California. The first earthquake occurred at 4:30 a.m. local time. the epicenter is 23 miles north of downtown LA. The quake woke up people in the greater Los Angeles area with a jolt and sustained rocking.

Some people are trying to get all philosophical with it.

Sure, we aren’t necessary on the planet. One can even argue that we are the biggest threat to the earth’s integrity. However, the earth shaking beneath your feet is one of the most unnerving sensations. Let people panic in peace.

Some people were ready to physically fight the earthquake.

When dealing with an earthquake, it is important not to run. You want to stay in place and find a way to hunker down. Study tables are a good place to hide under during an earthquake, according to the National Safety Council. If that is not available, a good, sturdy doorframe is the second-best place to hunker down.

Others managed to sleep right through them.

There is a special class of people who are never awakened by earthquakes. The sleep is so deep that not even the earth moving wakes them up. Those are the kinds of people you want on your side. Nerves of steel.

This one abuelito thinkgs that your concern over this earthquake is cute.

The 1994 Northridge earthquake is something no one will ever forget. The 6.7 magnitude earthquake was devastating and those who lived through it will never forget it. While this earthquake hasn’t caused immediate damage, it is a reminder to always be ready for the big one.
