We’re all about our boys in blue and with the World Series going on tonight in Boston, some of their incredible journey’s are surfacing and this one started in Sinaloa, Mexico made us feel good! It has to do with one of the Dodgers Relief Pitchers, Julio Urias, also known as “El Culichi.” He was scouted from Mexico the same year the team found Yaisel Puig, except Julio was only sixteen years old! It’s a miracle he’s able to pitch at all. When he was little, Julio had three eye surgeries on his left eye to remove a benign mass.
To this day, his eye remains nearly closed on the inner eyelid, but he’s learned to see through it and well enough to pitch at the highest level. Being the devout Catholic he is, when asked about the his condition, he always finds the bright side and said,
“That’s how God works. He gave me a bad left eye. But a good left arm.”
Well, during their celebration after Saturday’s huge win, we learned something else about Julio Urias. Kike Hernandez paused the champagne shower and shared another reason El Culichi is a fighter and our feel good!

Aretha Franklin did not receive her title as the ‘Queen of Soul’ for no reason. Her chillingly beautiful music has the ability to speak directly to your heart in ways no other can replicate. Her moving performances paired with her four-octave vocal range makes Franklin a true wonder. As a little girl, she sang Gospel music and her soulful voice led her to stardom. At 76 years old, she passed away at her home surrounded by family and friends at her home in Detroit. She had reportedly been suffering from Pancreatic Cancer of the Neuroendocrine type. Her family released this statement:
‘In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. ‘We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.’
