Fighting crime

Hello, all!

I regret to inform you that I gave the power of the remote control to my sisters, and they were happy to leave on Volcano Live! With Nik Wallenda.

Ramble of the Day

The LA Galaxy is making a habit of taking its biggest player to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, meaning new designated player Chicharito made his own appearance the other night. Instead of a traditional interview with Kimmel, Chicharito got to spend some quality time with Kimmel’s sidekick. Presenting to you, Chicarito y Guillermo. (Warning that the entirety of the skit is in Spanish and that there are no subtitles, but it’s supposed to be enjoyable for those who don’t know Spanish.)

Now, for possibly spoiler-filled description for those who didn’t want to or couldn’t watch: Chicharito and Guillermo are a crime fighting duo, and there are some football references mixed in, from Chicharito kicking a ball to stop a criminal to them showing a red card to another criminal. There are funny wigs, silly but hilarious set pieces, and some celebrity cameos.

[spoiler ahead]

My favorite part is when Chicharito bicycle kicks a bomb into a gas truck.

Since this is becoming the place where I recommend brief distractions from the stress that is being a Tottenham supporter nowadays, I’ll say it’s a good way to spend three and a half minutes if you have them!

tl;dr: Chicharito did a skit with Guillermo on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
