If You’re Weirded Out by Guys Kissing, You Probably Don’t Watch Soccer

Mexican soccer team Tigres UANL recently won the 2015 Liga MX Apertura championship in a dramatic penalty shootout.

Tigres, based in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, defeated Pumas UNAM to win their fourth Mexican league title.

An image of goalkeeper Nahuel Guzmán kissing Israel Jiménez (the guy who scored the winning penalty) went viral moments after the end of the match.

How El Chapo Makes $80K from a $5K "Investment"


How El Chapo Makes $80K from a $5K “Investment”

Cartel drug map

Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel is, by far, the number one drug lord in the world, according to a new report by the DEA.

El Chapo has almost full control of the drug market in the United States, which includes $3 billion worth of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. He funnels it in through Chicago and Los Angeles and gangs — like MS-13, Latin Kings, Bloods, the Sureños and Crips — help distribute it to the entire country and even Canada.

According to the Mexican newspaper El Universal, this may be due to a rumored agreement made in 2000 between the Sinaloa Cartel and US Officials where, in exchange for information on other drug organizations, El Chapo would do as he pleased.

Whether or not this is true, what’s a fact is that the cartel is becoming even more powerful. El Chapo is now growing his own opium to produce heroin and compete with the South American market. He has, according to farmers and officials in Mexico, 23,000 miles of opium and marijuana fields, that’s larger than Costa Rica. And just to put things in perspective as to his profits: it costs him $5,000 to produce a kilogram of heroin and can sell it for $80,000, street value.

Obviously, that’s not without consequence. Between 2007 and 2014, heroin deaths increased by 244% and there are between 435,000 to 1.5 million heroin users in the U.S. So whether he’s behind bars or roaming free, El Chapo is keeping his King Pin title.
