Yes, that is a Laredo fan wearing a bag on his head at Monday’s game against Rio Grande Valley. Who would’ve ever imagined seeing that during the Bucks’ run of dominance since their inception? I took that picture after Laredo went up 3-0 tonight. I couldn’t believe the game ops people kept flashing the bag man on the video board during the game.

Unfortunately, it was also noted how empty the LEA was. Is this how Laredo Proud is interpreted? Of course not, this guy was just modeling the new fashion trend that my Fregado family started last year – HA!

(if you must know, we were shooting a little video “anonymously” last year for a contest. I have very patient friends and relatives.)

About Que Fregados

Que Fregados is a quirky look at little things that strike us funny in Laredo and the unique Latino culture. Suggestions and comments are welcome. You can also email to

    The Photog hit it on the head. What did the ops people have in mind giving him, the bag man, prominence. He should have been ridden out of the arena on a pole. I wanted to do that but thought he would just go away. He stayed with the bag through the Bucks win 5-3. Imagine that!Q
