Pocho of the Week: San Antonio Floater Albert Rios

Crack open a cold Bud Lite for San Antonio’s Albert Rios, our Pocho of the Week, to celebrate his positive attitude and preparedness to ride out this past weekend’s major flooding in style.  Rios, who was ready with raft, beer and river shoes when the waters hit, launched into the suburban river like a modern-day Tom Sawyer. Chances are, he was blasting Rush’s Tom Sawyer during his epic ride, which lasted half a block, just long enough to suck down that beer.

Inspired by Rios’ indomitable weekend water warrior spirit, the San Antonio Spurs trounced the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday to complete a four-game sweep and advance to the NBA finals.
