And you wonder why you play the game called life every day? Because for all the days you think you have “missed,” you will always connect and it will be gorgeous. May your life be a perfect Robin Van Persie goal.

Ok, I know I am an Arsenal supporter, but when I heard that Manchester United and Mexican soccer star Javier Hernández (known to all fans as “Chicharito) had responded to the TOP GEAR Mexican fiasco in a very creative and original way, I had to share. Sorry, Cesc Fabregas, you know I would never write about United in this blog, but Chicharito’s response was right on the money. He earns major props.

In a new ad campaign that the soccer star arranged with Powerade, an image of a proud Chicharito is accompanied by the following text, translated here from the Spanish: “Yes, imagine waking up and discovering that you are Mexican. Less prejudice. More exercise.”

The soccer star was obviously making reference to the comments made by TOP GEAR host Richard Hammond and then repeated by host Jeremy Clarkson (video below). Recent articles in both the Mexican and English press reported that Chicharito was so upset with the comments that he wanted to use his star power to present an appropriate (and dare we say clever and classy?) response to the TOP GEAR Three Amigos.


Ok, Chicharito, you are cool in my book. But Arsenal is still coming after you and United for the Premiership title this year. GOOONERS!!!!

If you know me, if you truly know me, then you know I am a huge soccer fan, and I believe that the Premier League is the best soccer in the world, and my beloved Arsenal the best team (well, when they don’t frustrate me). Well, this week the Gunners take on the dreaded Spurs in a match that makes Yankees-Red Sox look like a tea party. In honor of this match (and we expect great things from the lads this weekend), we are recommending our 5 Best Arsenal Supporters we follow in Twitter, because when Arsenal is playing, Twitter is the most fantastic place to follow the best soccer team in the world.



twitterProfilePhoto_bigger @SampaDee: My man from Zambia (how cool is that? hello, social media) is one of the best Arsenal “twittercasters” on the Internet. He is always there to support the team and share updates with people, and yes, he is also an amazing soul.

twitterpic_bigger @manipillai: Mani is a London dynamo who loves her Gooners, and she loves to keep this Yank posted on the London perspective on Arsenal. I love it whenever she reminds me about game sometimes (I mean, Carling Cup?). Thank you, my dear friend.

twitter_pic_bigger @arsenole: one of the BEST blogs I have ever read about Arsenal. He’s 22. He lives in Florida. He worships Cesc and is trying to marry Miley Cyrus. Some excellent commentary and honest humor.

DSC_00004_bigger @themib: Ah, Martin. Your love of the Gunners is pure love-hate. You crack me up with your analysis and wit when it comes to dissecting the team. Martin also posts some great Twitter content when there is no game.

arsenal_bigger @arsenalreview: Another FANTASTIC fan blog from London. I always get excellent updates from this site and oh, yeah, the person who runs it, is one cool dude as well.

And we leave you with this, “If You Hate Tottenham, Stand Up!”
