Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Rock, Helmets, Action

Three games out of the year the band, football players, cheerleaders, and any other student organization attending away football games were given the same instructions by teachers: Leave all bus windows closed at all times and always keep your helmets on. (i don't know what cheerleaders did).

The three towns: Rio Grande City, La Joya, and PSJA.

My friend and I were talking about this a couple of days ago. For some reason, win or lose, after every football game played in any one of these towns, the fans (kids) would decide to throw rocks at the bus. It's actually pretty funny, but I guess could have been dangerous.

That's why every year we had to follow the same procedure. I do remember getting pelted. Nobody got hit and I think someone in my bus actually mooned the students first. Either way, it was pretty damn funny.

Man, those kids from la Joya can be such punks. I never had any kind of experience like that while in band in high school or college. I guess people in California are different... and cooler.
