Morning Poll -- Cinco de Mayo: Is it a Legit Holiday in U.S. Or Has it Lost its Meaning and Become Just Another Excuse to Get Bombed?
Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, so if you're reading this, there's a good chance you're hung-over. If that's the case, grab yourself some aspirin and take our poll.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.
If you didn't know that and you're of Mexicen descent, you shouldn't have gotten shit-faced last night.
In recent years, the Mexican holiday seems to have lost its meaning and gone the route of St. Patrick's Day -- turning into little more than an excuse to get loaded.
Not that we have anything against getting loaded, but a seasoned booze-hound shouldn't need an excuse.
We want to know what you think: Is Cinco de Mayo a legit holiday in the U.S., or has it lost its meaning and become just another excuse to get blasted.
Let us know by taking our poll -- and check out the results from yesterday's poll -- after the jump.
Yesterday's poll question: Who is the most hated member of the San Antonio Spurs
- 65.8 percent say Manu Ginobili
- 23.7 percent say Tim Duncan
- 10.5 percent say Tony Parker
*Robert Horry was a write-in candidate, and while he no longer plays for the Spurs, he has certainly earned his stripes among the most hated Spurs of all time.
