Best Of 2015

Bomba Estereo

The electro cumbia/tropical bass group released the album of the year with Amanecer. The above track, “Algo Esta Cambiando,” is my favorite track off the album.

El Tri

I had the pleasure to see Mexico’s national team play (and win!) twice this year. The first game was in March at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum where Mexico defeated Ecuador 1 – 0. It was the game where Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez became Mexico’s second most prolific goalscorer and where my excitement over it was caught on camera.

The second time was at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena where El Tri defeated Team USA 3 – 2 in extra time to clinch the CONCACAF spot for the 2017 Confederations Cup. I sat on the field opposite Mexico’s bench and was on TV again, this time for the entirety of the match.

New York

I finally went to New York for the first time in my life. The week-long trip went by too quickly but was incredibly fun thanks to my wonderful friends. (Yes, I cut my hair too).

Aurelio

Most important of all, my nephew was born this year!
