    Goodbye, Sábado Gigante: The Manero Pop Podcast, Episode 4

    in Pop Culture

    You've probably heard the news by now: the variety TV show Sábado Gigante will end his record-breaking 53-year run on the air come September.


    The show started in Chile in 1962, but after moving to Miami in 1986, it became an institution of Latino television in the United States, and a cultural touchstone of the immigrant experience.


    But Sábado Gigante was not free of controversy: even when the immediate reactions after the news of the show's cancelation broke were cries of "devastation," as they days went a very different reaction came to light. Several critics expressed their hatred of a show they considered "racist and misogynistic."


    Here, José Manuel Simián and Marcelo Báez discuss the impact of the Sábado Gigante on Latino pop culture, and interview blogger Laura Martínez and former member of the show's Clan Infantil, Paz Zárate.


    UPDATE: During his interview with Laura Martínez, José Manuel Simián made an implicit reference to Univisión's host Fernando Fiore, who is no longer with the network.

    Vincent "The Chin" Gigante was once a big Bobby Gonzalez fan

    in Basketball

    On SheridanHoops.com, coach Bobby Gonzalez tells a great New York story.


    Years ago, he was having dinner in the famous Italian restaurant on the Upper East Side, Campagnola's, out celebrating his second NCAA run as the coach of the Manhattan Jaspers. The maitre d came over said some gentlemen at a nearby table would like to send over a bottle of wine, and would like to meet and thank you.


    So I naively looked at the table full of recognizable characters with pinkie rings and said "Thank me for what?"


    One guy looked familiar to me, and it was because his picture was often on TV and in the papers as a don of the Genovese crime family who was known to walk around Greenwich Village in a bathrobe to make the authorities believe he was crazy. He was Vincent "The Chin" Gigante.


    He motioned me over, saying he and his crew wanted to meet and thank me as they had won a lot of money on Manhattan beating Florida in the tourney.


    After I told him I don't gamble or know much about it, he explained we started as an 11-point underdog by the time the game started people liked my team's chances so much it dropped to 5. After we went on to win by 15, they were all very happy.


    I then told him I didn't want to accept the wine as I also don't drink, but I thanked him very respectfully. Gigante and his dinner companions all said they would be following and rooting for me as their favorite coach.


    I laughed and thought to myself "Only in New York."


    And with that intro, here is my latest NCAA Tournament interview from Sports X Radio with Ken Thompson, a show based out of Vegas.
