¡Viva Mexico!: Chicharito a Hero in Tough Times for Mexico

Chicharito a Hero in Tough Times for Mexico - ABC News: "Look up from an oppressive Mexico City traffic jam and you see the baby face of Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez smiling down from a giant billboard. Look ahead and his image beams from an ad on a bakery truck.

Though he lives and plays more than 5,000 miles away for English club Manchester United, the 22-year-old whose nickname means 'Little Pea' is everywhere in his home country at a time when Mexico is in dire need of a hero. ...

For Mexico, Chicharito's success is about much more than football. "He's the only thing Mexicans believe in right now," writer and cultural commentator Guadalupe Loaeza said. "We don't believe the government, the institutions, the political parties. But through months and months of this crisis, Chicharito has brought us good news in front of the whole world.""
