Montezuma's Rule #1: Don't Eat Italian Food in Mexico!


Tuesday, August 8, 2017:

First and foremost, HAPPY 8th ANNIVERSARY to Mike and Vanessa Contreras!

Many of your Europe Warriors, including their Offensive Line Coach/Special Teams Coordinator, braced for the new day with a touch of the old Montezuma's Revenge.

The common thread culprit was the lasagna we had at dinner Monday night. Those who ate some had, shall we say, a busy day.

Those who didn't were the fortunate ones.

DL Claudio Nicola
Milan Rhinos

His wise answer as to why he was spared from the dilemma that many of us faced today was "If I ate lasagna in Mexico my Grandfather would have come down from Heaven and killed me!"

Thus my new dietary rule: 
EAT NO ITALIAN FOOD IN MEXICO!
