Who or What is the Blue Sombrero?

It is not as crazy a name as it looks!  The name Blue Sombrero was chosen to always keep a piece of our roots with us.  In actuality, Sombrero is a soccer move.  When a offensive player lifts the ball over a defenders head and runs on to it, it is called a Sombrero.  It is a cultural name that is used in Central and South America, France and parts of Europe.  It got its name from soccer in the streets where young boys played with hats.  If the move was performed right, you could beat a defensive player and take his hat off at the same time…Sombrero!  Still not sure…check this footage out: 


* It starts with some still pictures, and then goes into video of Ronaldinho and Zidane shooting.  Right afterthat it shows Ronaldinho doing the Sombrero 3times in a row!  Great soccer footage and a great move!
