On the latest episode of “Dancing With the Stars,” we got to see a super intimate side of Laurie Hernandez and her family. The interviews start with her parents talking about how they remember little Laurie as the “life of the house.” Her parents then talked about all the sacrifices they make sure Laurie had the opportunity to do what she loved. Just like most of our parents, they worked hard to make ends meet – they even worked at Laurie’s gym. But that’s not even the most emotional part of the interview.
Laurie then visits her grandmother in her assisted living home… and we lost it.

“I’m very, very, very proud of her.” Then she whispers an “Ay, mamita.” Get. The. Tissues. They reminisce about how abuelita Hernandez moved from Puerto Rico to the U.S. in order to chase her dreams. Check out their story above. ❤️
Estadio Azteca in Mexico City is getting ready to host Monday Night Football for the first time outside of the U.S.
Set for November 21st, the stadium will change its field fútbol to football to host a clash between the Raiders (7-2) and the Texans (6-3), two of the AFC’s top performing teams so far this season.
Nearly 77,000 fans are expected to attend the event, bringing in nearly 22 million dollars in revenue for Mexico City. The game is the first of three apparent games the NFL has agreed to bring to Mexico, however that all depends on how well the November 21st game is received. Mexican Tourism Secretary Enrique de la Madrid explained at a recent press conference, the continued relationship between Mexico and the NFL is “subject to the results of the first [game].” Mexico knows how to show people a good time, and we’re expecting this game to be no different.
