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…

At first.

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.

These Early 2000 Jams Will Give You Major Nostalgia

@4evrdiamond / Instagram

From middle school dances to family parties in the early 2000’s, there were a few jams that you knew the entire lyrics and dance moves to. If you weren’t burning CD’s, then you for sure had these songs downloaded onto your iPod.

It all started in the year ?2000? with:

“It Wasn’t Me” by Shaggy

Half the time you couldn’t understand what Shaggy was singing, but you for sure knew the chorus to this song.

And in ?2001? the DJ would play:

“I’m Real” by J.Lo

Everyone knew anything with J.Lo and Ja Rule would be a hit.

“Where The Party At?” by Jagged Edge

This was the weekend anthem.

“La Bomba” by Azul Azul

This was pretty much the Latino version of the “Cha Cha Slide.” And you were probably humiliated when your dad got up to dance this.

?2002? kept it poppin’ with jams like:

“Asereje” by Las Ketchup

A song you just had to know the moves to.

“Hot In Herre” by Nelly

Someone was bound to take off their jacket as soon as this song came on. ?

“Where Is The Love” by The Black Eyed Peas

It was borderline a little cheesy for you, but you couldn’t help move your head to their beats.

In ?2003?, road trip jams consisted of:

“Suga Suga” by Baby Bash feat. Frankie J.

Something about this song just had you feeling so flyyyy.

“Holidae Inn” by Chingy feat. Snoop Dogg and Ludacris

And every time you saw a Holiday Inn you’d start singing this song. You couldn’t help it.

And in ??2004?? we had our hips moving to…

“Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee
