Twitter Trolled Jonathan Dos Santos For Wearing A ‘Sports Bra’ But There’s A Very Techy And Smart Reason Why He Wears One

In the final match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Mexico’s Jonathan dos Santos made the only and winning goal against the U.S. scoring in the 73rd minute to give Mexico a 1-0 lead over in Sunday’s Gold Cup Final. Twitter was in an uproar but over what Dos Santos… was wearing.

After he scored, Dos Santos raced on the field in a victory lap that included lifting his shirt up to his chin. Underneath, we all saw his famous six-pack and what looked to be a sports bra. Of course, Twitter users have questions and are taking to the Internet for answers.

The first phase of questioning was total disbelief.

The vast majority of folks talking about Dos Santos’ sports bra are just straight up asking, “Did I really just see that?” We’re here to tell you that is exactamente what you saw.

Some beautiful humans made sure to clarify that this is a no-judgment question.

There are certainly some far more judgmental Twitter users asking the same question with all kinds of sexist and homophobic undertones but these avid soccer fans just wanted to understand what Dos Santos was wearing.

Others took the image at face value and were just genuinely pleased at how relatable his wardrobe is.

We have yet to spot a single male who exhibited this kind of judgment-free reaction to the idea that Dos Santos was actually wearing a sports bra. Meanwhile, women are excited to see an elite athlete be a little bit more relatable on international television.

The next phase was all about offering proof.

Yup. “Dude is wearing a sports bra #dossantos #GoldCup2019,” writes @Midlo_RamFan. Another fan wanted to point out that he actually asked this question weeks ago when he first spotted the sports bra, and referred to his own tweet as proof that he saw it first.

Then came the questions. All the questions.

@megustatamales / Twitter

The first question was whether Dos Santos was making a fashion statement. Another question was whether he was wearing a sports bra to honor sports’ heroes? Twitter user @_renesilva_ poised the theory, “When Dos Santos showed the world he was wearing a sports bra, during his goal celebration I was thinking it was to pay respect to San Jose Legend Brandi Chastain.”

Another valid question: Do athletes have man boobs?

@CT_Alchemist / Twitter

We’re not doctors and can’t say for sure. But, yeah, no, Dos Santos definitely is not using a sports bra to support his man boobs.

Does Dos Santos experience nipple chafing?

@jacqypeterson / Twitter

Look, it’s a guarantee that us Latinx Internet nerds have no idea what it’s like to run around in a sweaty shirt for 10 hours cada día. Would we believe it? Absolutely.

But apparently, the ‘sports bra’ is actually a tracking device!

@MiloDaytona / Twitter

According to Gear Patrol, the bras contain highly accurate heart rate monitors and GPS trackers. It gives coaches and trainers “access to data that they previously couldn’t have dreamed of, including speed, distance covered and overall wear and tear on the athlete.”

The folks who already knew that just got to sit back and laugh at the Internet in motion.

@3ElGeneral / Twitter

Compared to commercial trackers, these trackers are able to capture 10 times the amount of data per second. It’s mostly used to limit athletes to prevent injuries. If they see they’re running too fast too early on in training, trainers can tell them to slow down.

Now, the rest of the world gets to judge these Twitter users on how naive they/we are to elite athlete technological advancements.

@gcfonthemoon / Twitter

Yes, America is obsessed with body image and gender roles and the rest of the world knows it. It’s pretty clear to see how women reacted versus men to the idea that the archetype of manliness might be wearing a sports bra. Apparently, Dos Santos and other elite athletes are less concerned with gender roles and more concerned with doing their job.

While Mexico won the Gold Cup, we think technology — and Dos Santos — deserve their own trophy.  ????????????????

Bravo. You got us all talking and thinking about men wearing sports bras, dragged all the sexist trolls out on the Internet, and are keeping athletes safe. Technology, you win. Nipple chafing, you lose.

TMZ: Naya Rivera’s Body Found In Lake Piru After Going Missing Last Week

Update: According to TMZ, Naya Rivera’s body has been found in Lake Piru after she went missing last week. Rivera’s disappearance has sent shockwaves of grief throughout the entertainment community as days passed and authorities combed the lake.

TMZ is reporting that the body found in Lake Piru is Naya Rivera.

TMZ was the first source to confirm Kobe Bryant’s death before the family could be contacted. They are now reporting that the body found is Rivera and that they were told by law enforcement contacts within Ventura County. A press conference is happening at 2 p.m. local time by law enforcement to address the discovery.

Last week, the sheriff’s department told the public that it was unlikely Rivera’s body would resurface because of debris.

At a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kevin Donoghue said that the debris of trees and plants under the water could cause the body to be entangled under the surface. Coupled with the poor visibility underwater, Office Sgt. Donoghue was not optimistic about the department’s chances of finding the body.

“We’re putting our best foot forward to try and locate her. We’re using all the assets that are available to us. We’re using technology like sonar,” he said at the press conference. “We have experts who have dove this lake who know it inside and out, where debris pockets might be, we’re relying on their expertise to help us in that endeavor. We’re going to do everything we can to find her.”

Original: “Glee” star Naya Rivera is presumed dead after going missing in southern California. The actress was on a boat in Lake Piru with her 4-year-old son when she went missing July 8 in Ventura County.

Authorities are searching for Naya Rivera after going missing.

Naya Rivera is presumed dead after her young son was found alone in a boat in Lake Piru. The lake is in Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County. Rivera’s son was found asleep on the boat three hours after Rivera rented the boat for the mother-son outing. According to officials, the son said that he and Rivera went for a swim and that she didn’t get back on the boat. CNN reports that the child was wearing a life vest while an adult life vest was found on the boat.

The search was paused overnight between Wednesday and Thursday and resumed as a recovery mission.

Fans do not think that Ventura County Sheriff’s are doing enough in the search for the actress. Emotions are high as fans share their grief and shock at Rivera’s sudden disappearance. According to Deputy Chris Dyer, the water where the boat was found is about 40 feet deep and that wind is a big factor in that part of the lake.

Authorities have classified the search as a recovery in a signal that they believe Rivera to be dead.

A recovery mission means that authorities are looking to recover a body from the lake. The news has devastated Rivera’s friends and family who want her brought home safe. Her son is reportedly doing well and is with relatives as authorities search for his mother in the lake.

Celebrities are sending messages hoping for Rivera to be alive.

Rivera wrote a memoir titled “Sorry, Not Sorry,” which gives an intimate look into her life during and after “Glee.” The actress was open and honest in her memoir bringing up some of the darkest and toughest times she endured and how it shaped her in the years that followed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rivera’s loved ones.

Family Sets Up GoFundMe To Help Paletero In Chicago Retire

Family Sets Up GoFundMe To Help Paletero In Chicago Retire

Every now and then there is a video or some news that bubbles up through the noise that makes you feel good. There’s another one of those stories coming out of Chicago thanks to a family helping a local paletero.

A viral video shows a family buying a paletero’s entire cooler of paletas.

The family wanted to help the paletero finish his work for the day because it was Father’s Day. After buying him out, the family decided to go one further for the older mand and set up a GoFundMe to help him retire for the life of selling paletas. Don Rosario, the paletero in the video, is 70 years old and is a staple of the East Side community in Chicago.

A GoFundMe for his retirement is raising a lot of money to help him out.

Selling paletas is exhausting work. Walking around all day long in the heat while trying to sell paletas is a demanding job. This family is taking it on themselves to help Rosario finally retire from the work so he can rest and enjoy his golden years.

There was so much love for Rosario that the fundraiser had to be closed and then reopened.

The family who set up the GoFundMe closed the fundraiser at one point, according to an update. This is because they were waiting to get his contact info and the fundraiser has exploded to more than $40,000. Then, after getting the info and enough interest to keep donating, the fundraiser was reopened. If you want to add to Rosario’s growing pot, you can click here.

The act of kindness that started on Father’s Day is still going and giving people hope.

These are dark times. We are still battling a virus. The U.S. is being forced to finally confront centuries of racial inequality. There are so many things happening that can make us mad. However, stories like these remind us that there is still so much good happening out there.

This is a ray of light in a world that is often so confusing right now.

“We’ve been left speechless, there were people from all over the states donating,” Michaelangelo Mosqueda, the GoFundMe creator, told Block Club Chicago. “It has been really eye-opening to see that when we all come together we do some great things for others.”
