Q & A with Kevin Holness/Chico Commercial

Kevin has graciously offered to take some time out of his incredibly busy schedule to answer a few questions I submit. Instead of me just sending in questions I thought I would attempt to let the readers submit questions and from there I will pick a few to send to Kev. Deadline will be tomorrow sometime so lets have at it. NOT ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED!

Also Julio has recently directed me towards a commercial released by Chico's media team so I thought I would share.

Best video ever! I laughed so much I honestly had to wipe some tears. Now I know what Brennan feels like.

I will make wrigley watch it 10-20 times a day until he's in teens so maybe one day he could have the skill set to say "I am Chico!"

Have you given any thought to having a relegation of teams, or perhaps having a qualifying tournament to help improve the quality and parity in the Men's side of the tournament?

Top 5 GKs in the tourney?

An Epic day today at WCP headquarters, lot of news to report; and some major rumblings.

1. The 'Chico-licious" brand has sky rocketed in value after Nike launched it's first commercial for their new front man Chico. It is reported that there will be a series of more commercials to be released in the near future, but Nike is struggling to find a supporting cast that can share the spot light with Chico. When asked for comment about these reports and possible release dates for upcoming commercials, Chico was quoted as merely saying "I am Chico" and then brushed reporters aside as he mounted his newly acquired horse due to a recent signing bonus.

2. Bart, the Polish Playboi, was busy causing a stir in the Regina retail scene. First Bart was escorted out of a Wal-Mart as he was caught trying on girl's underwear in preparation for his big pre-game act for the boys, later that day he was also later escorted out of a La Senza girl for trying to smuggle a pair of fish net leggings. The question now has to be raised, has Bart traded in his pleated skirt for a more scandalous outfit? Stay tuned as we learn more in the upcoming days.

3. TSN insider DUFUS is once again making his predictions for winners for this year's tournament. DUFUS has Norway as long odd favourites. His three least likely teams to win are ES, ROI, and Afghanistan. Typical Dufus, always getting things wrong.

4. Soheil Summer was spotted entering Regina's City Hall early this afternoon. Soheil met with the mayor to discuss a possible parade route. Rumors are swirling that the parade will consists of a minature version of the pyramid of Chico that will later be given to the team's MVP.

5. A tragedy has struck the Greek camp. The Greek God of Videos has decided to give up his craft after viewing the masterpiece created by Chico for his Nike ad campaign. Due to his hard work in previous years Zeus will reward the Greeks by giving their goalie a pair of gloves created by Vulcan (Hephaestus) as the gloves will give the Greek goalie the power to save any shots from a mere mortal. Luckily for Afghan, Chico is a demi god and shall score with ease on any keeper.

Till next time, stay clueless Regina. Julio

I think this was today's best breaking news soo far!
I honestly come on here just for that hahah I can't stop laughing at the Bart comment.

Is there actually going to be more Chico commercials? I was impressed by the quality.

Kevin Question:
Who would you name to the 2011 WCP All-star team?

Hilarious post and video. Julio had a good day. I wish I knew what Jordian thought of his commercial.

Biggest surprises going into the WCP?

Julio is the best player on Ireland hands down. I want to learn to play soccer from him. The rest are clueless and have no skill, especially Mike Collins who can only take free kicks. That's it.

Julio,

I have some bad news to report. It is still early and all medical results are under wraps, but Chico has sustained some level of a pulled quad muscle.

Here is the the story:
Chico arrived home from playing Afghanistan's 8th exhibition game of this week and got a call to check out the ad, as he has not seen the final version due to Soheil's intense training schedule. He popped the video on the computer and started watching in anticipation. Once he saw the free kick go in on the commercial he ran through the living room at full speed, right into the kitchen and delivered his patented jumping fist pump. With his mammoth vert he hit his head on the ceiling, landed funny and has sustained a few minor injuries that hopefully will not hinder his performance.

The parade route has now been shortened as a result and team doctors have announced that he may have to wear even longer compression shorts for protection.

Top 10 Gks in the tourney? Anyone know? List them please. I'm interested to know. Help us out Julio, Mike, or anyone who knows. :)

i dont even think there are 10 goalkeepers worth mentioning...

Soheil Summers said...

It's true, Chico is out for the Laos game. He injured his hamstring. He could miss the Jamaica game too.

I'm not too worried though, Chico isnt that good anyways. Mostly overrated and over hyped ;)

Soheil,

I actually have to disagree with you; I don't think Chico has been hyped up enough yet! Maybe his fan club will magically return and they can join into the hype train that is Chico. Ever since Chico started making an appearence in the daily news, his fan club just evaportaed into thing air.

A strip off between Bart, the Polish Playboi, vs Anibal would a no brainer... Bart has the pedigree that Anibal can only dream of.

Stay tuned for your daily news later tonight, as Bart has been out and about causing more controversy.

Question for Kevin, Will there be beer sales upstairs during the wcp?

Anonymous said...

I lol at the video!!!! Actually!

DG

Mike Collins said...

I can only take free kicks. I am fine with that label. Beckham can only take free kicks and he seems to have done pretty well for himself.

I will have a go at Top 10 keepers. I am going with the keepers who played last year since I don't know all of them for this year. In no particular order:

Michal Bandula (Poland)
Jonah Gardiokitis (ROI)
Tristan Manz (France)
Evan Campbell (Laos)
Mitch Cantin (ES)
Jordan Peto (Germany)
Simon Kluge (Germany)
Mark Diakiw (ROI)
Adam Chomos (Jamaica)
Mario Boudreau (Norway)

You can create your own order

Question for Kevin....

Mark Korthius and his wife just recently had a baby girl (yesterday). One of the things that was stopping Mark from commiting to the tourney was not knowing when his wife was going to have the baby. With the baby born will you try and persuade Mark to make it to any of the games or is he even on the roster?

The Joker said...

It's too bad Chico aka Robin pulled his hammy. I know that a pro scout was coming to watch him play, I think his name is Bryce Chapman

I believe ranking the top 10 keepers in the tournament is to many. Top 5 seems more realistic. After that its just a crap shoot of keepers with arguably the same amount of talent, some of which would be much better if they had a decent team in front of them.

1. Jonah Gardikiotis - lacks in size but doesn't show it. Playing on Ireland also helps his cause. Always seems to come through in the clutch.

2. Michal Bandula - proved last year that he is a top end goalie by pretty much carrying poland on his back to the semi final. Without him, Poland wouldnt be a threat.

3. Peto - Without him Germany's goals against would probably double

4. Tristan Manz - hasn't played all winter, but if he did, I would put Tristan at the top of the list as the best in the tournament. Might have to shake off some rust.

5. Evan Campbell

If there is one thing that Regina is better at, its definitely producing top end Keepers.

Honourable mentions - The Bravo family. Yes you guys are keepers, but no one seems to want to keep you. A conversation about keepers just isn't complete without the mention of the most notorious soccer family in Regina.

I agree with Kent's comment. Ireland has accomplished nothing without Julio. Maybe we'll have a shot this year.

So with jonah, poland would have made it to the final? Don't think so, michal is the better keeper.

Anonymous said...

Mike, your top 10 goalie list is a bit flawed. For starters Chomos is not playing this year and he only shows up each year for the wcp cup. I believe there are a lot of goalies missing of that list, which I am sure you will all notice this year because a good goalie in my mind plays on a weaker team and keeps them in it. If you put some of those guys you named Mike on a weak team with no D they would let a mad amount of goals in vs. another goalie. Picking good goalies is not an easy thing to do. I wouldn't rate a goalie to be honest in this tournament. I think they are all fairly equal in skill minus some of these older guys or like div 4-6guys. Also, Tristan Maz is a siv. I don't think he will do anything worth mentioning this year. Doesn't play soccer much, shows up for wcp, and really doesn't move the ball around well. Something that a goalie needs to be able to do is distribute the ball well in this tournament. That's my two cents.

P.S. You are not Beckham, Collins, ha ha ha! I can't believe you put that out there. Beckham is what he is because he can score free kicks and do it very well. YOU CANNOT!!! You free kick ability is no better than Julio defensive skills ...GARBAGE!!!

Anonymous said...

julio might be the most dsliked Saskatoon player but the Bravo 3 are most disliked in Regina. What a bunch of clowns. They leave a path of destruction wherever they go. Flav, the mightly Flav is the worst keeper on the planet, followed by Anibal and then the old man. Flavio I might recommend that you play on one the girl's teams.

Anonymous said...

Most disliked by some. I think the point to Julio's posts are to make those that hate him, hate him more; and those that love him, to love him more. It seems like the guy that keeps saying "everyone hates Julio" has failed to look at the polls and notice that clearly that isn't the case.

Flavs is horrendously bad, and Anibal is worse as he thinks he can play out. Maybe there should be a list of the worst 10 players in Regina?

Anonymous said...

Tristan doesnt move the ball well? valid comment coming from someone who doesnt leave a name ( sarcasm, as you probably aren't smart enough to figure that out) clearly you have no intelligence what so ever. I would say tristans distribution is un-questionably top 3. He can throw or kick the ball to any area on the pitch. what points do you have to disprove this? you have made an argument with nothing to back it up.
