Irish People Trying Tequila Is Exactly What You’d Expect

The people who helped bring us whiskey slightly struggled with tequila.

The people of Facts. love doing taste tests and it was only a matter of time until they landed on tequila. Six Irish people descent sat down and tasted four different tequilas: Sauza Gold, el Jimador Silver, Arette Añejo and Don Julio Añejo. Just like everyone else, the reactions to the tequila was split but hearing them discuss how the tequila affects them with their Irish accents adds to the comedy. Like, honestly, what are you like after four shots of tequila?

From the beginning, people were on different sides of testing tequila.

But, in the end, these folks had nothing but appreciation for Mexican ingenuity.

Oakland A’s Slugger Chooses Mexico Over USA In World Baseball Classic

Oakland A’s slugger Khris Davis has announced he will represent Mexico at next year’s World Baseball Classic.

The 28-year-old, who began his MLB career with the Milwaukee Brewers, is known for his impressive power.

Last year, Davis hit 40 home runs for the A’s.


He’s only the fifth player in A’s history to hit 40 dingers in a season.

So, why Mexico? Davis’ mother is Mexican. She was born in Sinaloa and moved to Los Angeles with her family when she was only 4 years old.


Davis told MLB.com’s Jane Lee that he attributes his success to the tireless work of his mother. Although Davis’ father, Rodney, is a former MLB player — he’s worked as a scout for several years — Davis says his father traveled often, which meant his Davis’ mother, Sonia Alarcon, had to pick up the slack. She worked two jobs and even helped her son practice hitting in the family’s backyard.

“I would pitch to him whenever he needed. Even on a tired day, I would go out there and pitch beans and balls to him. I would just have to remind him not to hit me. He told me I would be OK, and I always was,” said Alarcon to MLB.com. Beans? Yes, beans. Alarcon says she sometimes helped her son focus on hitting by tossing frijoles, not baseballs, at her son’s strike zone.

Davis told the San Francisco Chronicle that his move was also motivated by his grandparents: “For them to see me represent their country I think would be a dream come true.”

Davis joins major leaguers Adrian Gonzalez, Roberto Osuna and Sergio Romo on team Mexico, who are trying to reach the World Baseball Classic medal round for the first time in team history.
