When soccer megastar Lionel Messi announced his international retirement after a heartbreaking loss to Chile in the final of the Copa América Centenario, Argentina fans held their breath, hoping Messi would have a change of heart. Messi reconsidered and joined Argentina during their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.
Despite some early struggles, Argentina were looking to get back on track with Messi in the fold — but their road to the World Cup has gotten a little rougher. Bolivia’s national team recently had to forfeit two matches — a win versus Perú and a draw versus Chile — after they fielded an ineligible player. The player in question, Nelson Cabrera, was born in Paraguay and isn’t eligible to play for Bolivia because he has already represented Paraguay at the international level.
What does this have to do with Argentina? Well, FIFA ruled both of Bolivia’s matches as forfeits, which gave Chile a victory in a game that originally ended in a draw. That gave Chile a few extra points, which helped Chile leapfrog over Argentina in South America’s World Cup qualifying standings.
In South America, the top four teams (out of eight) qualify for the World Cup. The fifth place team goes into a playoff with a team from the Oceania Confederation. Argentina is currently in sixth place, which means if they are unable to move up the qualification table, they’re out of the World Cup.

If qualification ended today, teams is yellow would qualify for 2018 World Cup. Chile, who is currently fifth, would enter a playoff against a team from the Oceania Confederation.
Argentina still has plenty of time to make up points and qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but now they’ve got added pressure — any slip up over their next few matches, and they’ll be watching the world’s biggest sporting event from home.
The World Series is still happening despite Covid because baseball just can’t be held down. The Dodgers are playing their first World Series game today and fans are so excited to finally get some more baseball in their lives.
The World Series is here and Los Dodgers are playing their first game.
Baseball is America’s pastime and few teams have a fanbase as energized as The Dodgers. Ask any Dodgers fans about how difficult it is to get to the stadium and their commitment to the team is clear. It is not anywhere accessible by public transportation so you really have to want it.
People are super energized to celebrate and support their team.
The Dodgers made it to the championship game against the Houston Astros in 2017. The Dodgers lost to the Astros that year but three years later the Astros had the title stripped because of a cheating scandal. Now, The Dodgers have a chance to make win a title and Dodgers fans are excited to see it happen.
Even the furry fans are getting excited about the games.
It’s a fact that if a team has furry fans then they have the best fanbase. Who doesn’t want to end up at a stadium or party with these cute fluffers walking around in their Dodgers’ gear? These four-legged fans are better than child fans because they are going to get everyone’s spirits up.
The team has a lot of big names behind them cheering them on.
Los Angeles is home to some of the top celebrities and athletes. It must be nice to know that some of the most influential people are out there pushing for you to make it all the way. Bonus points if they are other athletes who know just how exciting and hard it is to compete at the elite level.
Let’s go, Dodgers!
The Dodgers play the Tampa Bay Rays tonight at 5:11 PST. Be sure to tune in and cheer for your favorite baseball team as they try for the championship again.
The trailer for Netflix’s “Selena: The Series” is here and it is everything fans have been hoping for. The Netflix Original series is shining a light on the Selena few of us have had a chance to explore. The story will be told of a young Selena as she is starting her music career.
The trailer for “Selena: The Series” is out and it looks magnificent.
The first trailer is here and it is showing us all of the ’80s Selena vibes and looks we love. We never got a real good look at the early years of Selena y Los Dinos so this show is giving us a chance to better know Selena. We all know Selena as the Grammy-winning artist who was tragically murdered by her fan club president, but we have not really known her at the beginning of her career.
Let’s just all take a moment and appreciate those curly-haired looks.
We have all seen the photos of Selena with the curly, ’80s-style looks. Her curly hair always seemed like some intangible moment in her history. For the first time in a long time, we get to know the Selena who worked to become the most famous female Latin artists of all time.
We are just over one month away before the release of the new show.
“Selena: The Series” premieres on Dec. 4 and all the Selena fans cannot wait. Be sure to catch in on Netflix so we all have something to talk about online while still in quarantine.
Original: One of the most popular and cathartic things to do in the time of Covid is to binge-watch shows on streaming platforms. Why drag something out when you can watch an entire season in a day? Well, Selena fans now have one more thing to binge after Netflix announced the release date for “Selena: The Series.”
The world will forever change after Dec. 4.
Netflix is finally releasing the highly anticipated show “Selena: The Series” and we are so stoked to finally see it. The show has been on the radar of Selena fans everywhere since it was announced in 2018. We have all patiently waited for two years to finally see this show.
This is not a drill. This is not a prank. This is a gift from the entertainment deities who want to make sure that we all have something to make these hard times better. All you need is access to a Netflix account, doesn’t matter whose, and the enduring love for Selena that most of us have.
People are marking their calendars for a big day in entertainment.
That’s right. Netflix is releasing “Selena: The Series” and Disney+ is releasing “Mulan” for Disney+ subscribers at no extra charge after trying to rent it for $30 through the app. Dec. 4 is gearing up to be one of the most exciting days for people who just don’t want to leave the house during the current Covid pandemic. What a time to be a live, huh?
Netflix knows exactly what they are doing by releasing this show.
This show is approved by the Quintanilla family so there is that. This show was announced at the same time that Telemundo announced that the Spanish-language network was releasing their own series “El Secreto De Selena.”
The Telemundo show was based on the book written by journalist María Celeste Arrarás. The family has vehemently denied the accusations made in the book multiple times and Telemundo’s decision to make the series, which aired in 2018, angered viewers.
We have been promised a story about Selena that we have not seen in the past.
The Netflix series will not be rehashing what we have already seen. We know the story of Selena’s musical rise and tragic death thanks to “Selena” with J.Lo.
“Selena: The Series” is going to be showing us the life of a young Selena before the fame and musical career. It is truly amazing that after all of these years, there are still new stories to be told about Selena and her important place in American Latino history.
“Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice,” reads the description of the show. “The two-part coming-of-age drama ‘Selena: The Series’ explores the once-in-a-generation performer’s journey as a young artist, from singing small gigs in Corpus Christi with her family to becoming one of the most successful Latin artists of all time — and the years of grit and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together before Selena’s meteoric rise to fame.”
So, mark your calendars and gather your loved ones.
This day should be a holiday as we all know that Selena is one of the greatest unifiers in the Latino community. We still sing her songs to this day and her legacy is being passed down to younger Latinos. Selena gave us representations before we knew we wanted and needed it.
It’s like we can already hear those old-school Selena y Los Dinos songs playing in our heads. Dec. 4 can’t get here fast enough and that’s a fact.
