Salsa con football

So what did this year's Super Bowl prove? Not only that the NY Giants are the better team, but also that Latinos do indeed watch and play football. Victor Cruz probably just showed mainstream America that all "we" do is salsa but it was his way of adding his roots to the game. A Latina.com article stated, "Prior to this season the half-Puerto Rican wide receiver Cruz was virtually unknown, but few would have guessed as millions of viewers watched him salsa dancing in the endzone after catching the Giants’ first touchdown according to NYDailyNews.com." It was pretty awesome to see the entire world notice how diverse our people can be. Sure salsa dancing isn't everything but it's one small component and important to us.

One small note, I wish he wouldn't say we are of Latin descent. Egh. *See below*
