International Update: Minister of Finance

3 Comments

For those of you who may be unaware, our beloved Minister of Finance is living in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico playing professional soccer for one of the 4 teams in Guadalajara.  Its a great ceetey.  His absence has been sorely missed every time we attempt to divide the IHOP bill by the number of ministers at breakfast.  He has kept in touch and sent the pictures you see below.

Finance says, “Club Deportivo El Oro has two venues: ‘La Primavera’ and ‘El Estadio Jalisco’, the team is in the Mexican Second Division of Soccer, and I’m not sure about the mascot, but I would have to say it is GOLD.  Sometimes they call us ‘los mulos; which refers to the mules that were used to carry the gold from one place to another.”

You should write an email to say hello or actually go down to see a game, which I may actually do very soon.  If anyone is interested in sampling some authentic Mexican Meat Pancakes from Mexico in the near future, let me know.

In his free time he has been helping a mechanic bro who recently started a small
shindig of buying and selling used cars.  “We do all the mechanical,
body and paint work.  Here are a couple pics of him and I taking out
the fuel injectors while tuning up my malibu.”

Another one with his son
who is learning the ropes.

“Also a picture of a dood i know who lived
some time in L.A.  His shirt says, ‘An akward morning beats a boring
night.’  i think the cold sore on his lip is a nice touch.”

Our beloved Financiero is living the dream, hopefully he’ll be someplace we can all watch him soon.  LA Galaxia friendly?

Calculate your own bill, Suckas!
