A Mexican Family Just Welcomed Raiders Into Their Home With A Dish They Weren’t Expecting
Mexico City is welcoming the NFL to their city for their first ever Monday Night Football game tonight, between the Raiders and the Texans.
To celebrate, a few lucky Raiders were given the royal treatment by a very friendly family. Running back Latavius Murray and cornerback Derek Sherrard “D.J.” Hayden feasted on carnitas, salsa, chicharrón with guacamole, and chile toreado.
It was a meal fit for a king… Until the chapulines came out.
Always a fun joke to play on your non-Spanish speaking friends. A brief discussion between D.J. and Latavius confirmed that neither man knew exactly what chapulines were.
For two men who spend every weekend fighting off the world’s strongest competitors, they couldn’t handle a handful of harmless chapulines…
But they weren’t about to let a little insect keep them from getting a real home-cooked Mexican meal.
Like true athletes, D.J. and Latavius found the strength to taste a few.
And of course, they became instant fans of chapulines.
Just wash them down with a little horchata.
It’s great to see Mexico and the NFL working together to create a great moment of bonding between the two countries.
