Cinco de Mayo was yesterday, but this year in St. Louis we won't officially celebrate the Mexican holiday until Saturday when Cherokee Street hosts its annual parade and party
Of course, Saturday is not May 5. It's May 8, a.k.a. "Ocho de Mayo", if you speaka da Spanglish.
Which has me thinking: Wouldn't it have been muy awesome had the Cherokee Street organizers flown in Cincinnati Bengals wide-receiver Chad Ocho Cinco
to serve as grand marshal for Saturday's May 8 Cinco de Mayo??
It's as though his custom-made name
was custom made especially for such an occasion.
Can you wrap your mind around that? Okay, then. Carry on.
