“It’s an honor for me to join the great Yankees legends who have appeared on the Wheaties box through the years,” Rodriguez said.”Every athlete dreams about one day seeing themselves on the cover ofthe ‘Breakfast of Champions’ package.”

Roberto ClementeThe All-star baseball game took place in Pittsburgh last night and Roberto Clemente was honored as a Latino who opened a lot of doors. Hispanics Across America is attempting to get the number 21, Clemente’s number, retired from Major League Baseball, much like Jackie Robinson’s 42, but it is in review right now. There is a petition with about 70,000 names supporting this request but the goal is 100,000 total.

He became the first Hispanic to reach 3,000 hits, the first Hispanic to serve on the MLB Players Association Board, the first Hispanic admitted to the Hall of Fame. And that’s only for starters. “What he did for all the Latin-American players equals what Jackie Robinson did for the blacks,” said Jaime Jarrin, the Dodgers’ Hall-of-Fame broadcaster. “I can remember when I started in 1958, I could count the number of Latin players on one hand.”

This is something we have to get together as Hispanics to get accomplished. Like many have said for years, Clemente didn’t just represent Puerto Ricans. He represented Latin Americans period.

David Bisbal Covers on Eurovision 2006

David BisbalBelle Perez and Jeason, both Eurovision 2006 participants, have released cover songs of David Bisbal’s repertoire. Belle released Ave Maria and it is climbing the charts in Belgium while Jeason has planned to release Bisbal’s Buleria. I’m not sure if Belle speaks Spanish but her cover is not bad at all.

David Bisbal has not only mastered the art of pimping himself to corporations, but I think he also managed to talk these two up and coming singers to sing his songs so he can delay his 6-month hiatus even longer and stand shirtless by the campfire to roast his nipples.
