    I'm also blonde, but I can safely say that it's not me, either. :(

    Now that's what I call "blonde in a bottle"... although CUB over here brews a similar product.

    I thought Guero meant white boy. I also didn't know they used those little dots in Spanish. I'm confused.... Someone educate me.

    Guero or huero as they say in spanglish usually means a light complexion with light hair. I guess it's a double adjective ?

    I think Richard Branson ought to buy a MLS expansion franchise and call them the Virgins.

    And what about Luis Hernandez? Is he a real blonde, or bottle-blonde?

    What do you think?

    Really, if you can't tell, You should let others make your major life decisions. (if you're joking, then both of us are, if you're serious, then consider my comment)

    Is that how it's used too? There's one thing to what it truly means, but how is it actually used.

    I have friend who calls me white girl (I can't remember how she says it). I'm white, but I don't have light hair by any means.

    And what about the dotty thingies?

    The coach that I grew up playing for was mexican, and I was very close to his daughter, and family...he used to call me jueda (I dunno how to spell it, I just spelt it fanetically.) It means white girl....

    Can;t find it... and the type of beer is called Pure Blonde. I actually sold a few bottles of the stuff at the horse races in Geelong last week (god, I love working Spring Carnival here), and I told the patrons that this was "the true 'blonde in a bottle,' seriously!" :D

    Anyway, here's a link to CUB's direct site.

    Without the dots, it'd be "GAY-ro;" as Carlos says, the dots make it more like "WAY-ro."

    Who exactly is one depends a lot on who's talking; standards vary. Among the Mexican middle and upper classes, a person called güero would be someone they'd consider blond (or in some cases, had been blond as a child).

    I should also mention that my first post suggested that Club América wanted to "attack" MLS's business practices ... that's really not such a good word choice, "investigate" is far better.

    Thanks to sangreazul for pointing us to Alejandro Burillo ... he's gotta be the guy.

    Well. Anglos are also called bolillos or in your case you would be a bolilla or güera.

    They are called diérisis in Spanish.

    QUESO looks more like it, actually.

    Hey, B.K., what holiday blends do you recommend from Sierra Nevada? With respect to your location and experience in these matters, I would consider you an expert!
