- As we reported last week, the marketing campaign behind one of the newest members of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Albert Pujols, used the term "El Hombre" to promote him. Pujols expressed his discomfort with the ads because the nickname is already used for St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial. Out of respect for Musial and his career, Pujols spoke up and we've learned that his voice was heard.

The billboards currently up will come down in a couple of months and the nickname won't be used in future campaigns. Now he just needs a new nickname; any ideas? (Fox News Latino)

- For three home games in March, Orlando Magic will be celebrating the Latino community by wearing jerseys with the team name "El Magic." You can see the blue and white Spanglish jerseys on the players starting tonight as they participate in Noche Latina. (Huffington Post)
