You may not be a soccer enthusiast. You may be a casual observer. Perhaps, and this is best case scenario, you're a die-hard footy fanatic who has more than enough opinions on FIFA, the state of American Major League Soccer, and have serious.thoughts.about Cristiano Ronaldo. Regardless of which category you fall into, I need to highlight the international treasure that is José Mourinho, Chelsea FC Manager.

Love Chelsea or hate ‘em, and wether you can’t stand Mourinho or think he should be canonized, everyone has to agree, he is imminently gif-able. And with Chelsea participating in the International Champions Cup, we decided to celebrate the...

By now everyone has heard the results from the fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao this past weekend. Some folks cheered for Floyd Mayweather, others rooted for Manny Pacquiao to win. One thing that everyone agreed on in the aftermath, however, is that this epic matchup was a little anticlimactic. So what about the fight was interesting? Well there were definitely some characters sprinkled around that kept us entertained, and some silly outfits to boot. Here are our five favorite fashion statements from that fateful night.

1. Man With Button Hat and Sparkly Shirt

Who is this man on Mayweather’s team? He’s often seen wearing a newsboy cap adorned with pins and buttons. The hat he wore for the big fight Saturday night was no different, tens and tens of pins all over it! But if you missed this hat it’s because you were blinded by the reflective disco vest, which must have been inspired by Saturday Night Fever. Perhaps flashy vests and fancy hats are good luck charms for Team Mayweather.

Manny Pacquiao: Renaissance Man

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

The only thing folks have been able to talk about around here is the upcoming Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight happening Saturday, May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Billed as "The Fight of the Century," speculation on the outcome abounds, but one thing is for sure, regardless of his reputation as a world champion pugilist, Manny Pacquiao's larger-than-life persona is almost as fascinating as watching him in the ring. 

Born in Kibawe, Bukidon, Philippines, Pacquiao was raised in poverty - so much so that as a teenager, he had to drop out of high school due to the fact that his single mother could not support her six children on her meager income. Pacquiao rose from abject poverty to not only become one of history's most renowned boxers, but the only octouple champion in history - meaning he won world titles in eight different weight classes of boxing.

Beyond his prowess in the ring, however, Pacquiao has some serious - and seriously fascinating - hobbies. This man clearly has never met a challenge he wouldn't meet. The 37 year old is an actor, an incumbent in the Philippine House of Representatives from his home district of Lone District, was drafted into the Philippine Basketball Association in 2014, actively endorses politicians from his secondary home country, the U.S. (e.g. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and Governor Jerry Brown (D-CA)), and also released one full-length Tagalog album Laban Nating Lahat Ito, as well as several singles and collaborations in both English and Tagalog.
