More big hits for big boy El Korita Alegre
These days seventeen year-old, Cosme Salvatierraa.k.a., “El Korita Alegre”is still a kid; still in school and still belting out the hits. It was late last January when we first witnessed firsthand El Korita Alegre do his thing at the grand opening of The San Diego Historical Society’s “Corridos Sin Fronteras” exhibit. Dressed in full vaquero garb, microphone in hand and backed by veteran Julian Briano and his Hermanos de Durango conjunto, El Korita Alegre’s vocals soared high above his budding stature living up to all the buzz he’s set ablaze in the Los Angeles norteño underground circuit.
A Warrior’s Shout
By Heriberto Escamilla
We are born into a world of relationships
From the moment of conception,
When that primordial spark embarks on the path,
Our mother begins to nourish
And while we do not yet feel him,
Our father is already guiding our growth.

A Movie Review of the Cinderella Man
By Tom Donelson
Mae West once said, “when sex is good, it is great and when it is bad, it is still good.” Boxing movies are like that. Even the worse boxing movie can still be moving. If there was a sport made for the celluloid, it is boxing. Mano a mano, boxing represents sport at its purest. You have the drama of having one man fight another and you can see the fighter’s faces as well as their expression of anger and fear. There is no hiding in the ring and Hollywood thrives on the human drama and so does boxing.
Cotto Shows his Mettles and the Kid takes a step forward
By Tom Donelson
Most sports editors sent their boxing writers to Washington D.C. for the McBride-Tyson fight, real boxing fans watched the HBO double header at the Madison Garden. These fights could easily have been shot in black and white as these four fighters fought hard, tough fights. It was as if the times was the 1930’s in the old Garden, the original Mecca of boxing.
Hernandez Leading the League but Trailing at the Ballot Box
By John Philip Wyllie
Despite the fact that he began the week leading all National League catchers in appearances (58), hits (63) RBIs (32) home runs (7) and batting average (.292) the San Diego Padres’ Ramon Hern-andez was not even ranked in the top five in the early returns of the annual MLB All-Star balloting. Mike Piazza, a .258 hitter this season for the cellar dwelling Mets leads the pack. Piazza is trailing Hernandez in every major category except doubles (14 versus 12) and of course votes.

A Grand Afternoon For Amateurs in IATA Convention
Some of the world’s finest amateur toreros demonstrated their taurine abilities during the annual convention of the International Association of Taurine Aficionados (IATA), held June 10th and 11th in south Texas and Mexico. It was the first time that such a function had been presented at a Mexican ganadería, and it was, by all accounts, an unqualified success.
