Why would Hispanics be upset about that, though?
Your question is why are Mexicans and Mexican-Americans not that keen on celebrating Texas winning its independence from Mexico?

Re: LA name announcement in July?

Remember that the Dynamo had their own Blast/Bolts moment when they wanted to go with Houston 1836. https://orangeintheoven.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/326/files/2014/09/Houston1836.png The choice of Houston 1836 soon became a political issue. It raised a furor among some locals of Hispanic descent, a ...

Re: Updated XFL Coaching Staffs

Luck has been SO impressive. I'm pretty sure if you asked me to describe what a perfect XFL Commissioner would look like before he was hired, I wouldn't have even been able to imagine such a fantastic performance. I'm glad to hear he's as impressive to the people working closely with him as he is fr...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

I never cared for the Xtreme brand, but if there's a team to bring back, it's your defending champ. I don't e...

Re: Current College Player at XFL DC Showcase

I think I generally agree, but college coaches can be funny, and tensions are already high with the transfer portal. I can definitely see some being unwilling to consider him if they know he's auditioning for pro teams. Either way, it takes some courage to be the first guy to take the leap.

Re: Current College Player at XFL DC Showcase

Now we're cooking! I'll be very interested to see if this gets media traction. Good for Robinson for taking a chance.

Re: New York Summer Showcase

Catching up: A big thanks to Stephanie Rudnick, Lou D’Ermilio, Scott Parker, Brentan Debysingh, and some many others associated with the XFL, for being so hospitable and friendly. I alluded to this already, but I'm very glad to hear you were well received. It says a lot that the league recognizes th...
