The other sports are just sports. Baseball is a love. ~Bryant Gumbel, 1981

October 3,

Triple Crown Baby!

 Tonight Detroit's own Miguel Cabrera has secured the Triple Crown, making him the first baseball player to win the coveted Triple Crown since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. This win will make Venezuelan born, Cabrera the first ever Latino ball player to win the coveted award. 
On this same date in history, October 3, 1919, Cuban baseball player  Adolfo Luque, a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, became the first Latin player to appear in a World Series.

While we here in the "D" have been celebrating all week, today is extra special!  
Salud y felicidades! 
Way to go Cabbie! Eat 'em Up Tigers! Eat 'em Up!

The Venezuelan national rum punch is a perfect drink to celebrate with!

1 (14 oz) package frozen passion fruit pulp or juice (do not defrost)
1/2 cup cold water
6 oz. Venezuelan anejo rum (Santa Teresa)
1/2 cup unrefined cane sugar (Panela) or brown sugar

Combine all ingredients in a blender to dissolve sugar.
Pour drink over ice 
garnish with tropical fruits and mint spring

Orgullo Latino!
