[PHOTO] The Virgin of Guadalupe Appears Inside the Big A!

There is the Reconquista, and then there is what's happening with our Anaheim Angels--once the paragon of suburban gabacho aspirations as exemplified by Gene Autrey and Wally Joyner, now owned by a Latino (Arte Moreno), narrated by one (Jose Mota), and recent acquirers of Albert Pujols, the Dominican who just happens to be the biggest, non-steroidal chingón in baseball since Mickey Mantle.

All of this is God-ordained and supported, and now we have proof: a sighting of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the Empress of the Americas and Mexican through-and-through, inside the Big A, to give God's blessing to the franchise!

Take that, Doyers!

There's a neo-gothic monastery to the Virgen de Guadalupe in Cáceres, Spain, where the Virgen is carved into a rock fresco, complete with spiny background.  That city, btw, is off the beaten path but very very worth visiting (actually a UNESCO world heritage site, I beleive --but not to be confused with "Marques de Cáceres" which is a wine-maker from Rioja (Cáceres is in Extremadura). Used to be a Mexican (real Mexican) restaurant in Cáceres city called "La Malinche" , seriously. The owners were (are) from San Luis Potosí. Now that is la verdadera hispanidad.

Oh brother... More proof that Gustavo lacks imagination.

Why do they call her the "Virgin of Guadalupe?" There hasn't ever been a Mexican virgin girl under 14.

Quit trying to ride on Arte's coattails, God. And stop ruining perfectly good car decals.

Pujols looks like he's juicing to me -- just has better pharma. 

BTW I seem to remember the last world series (make that the only world series) the team has won was pre-Moreno.

It means "hills" in Catalan (where the J is pronounced like ZH).
