Larissa Riquelme: Model Has a Chance to Be a Nude Santa Claus
Paraguay Lost, but There is Reason to Hope Larissa Riquelme Will Strip Anyway
I am deeply upset that Paraguay lost 3-0 to Uruguay in the finals of Copa America. After all, I have been a die hard fan of Paraguay for several weeks now. I can pinpoint the exact moment I became a die hard fan. It was when I read the following quote from Paraguay super fan Larissa Riquelme:
If Paraguay win the Copa America then I shall pose nude on the pitch.
And they came so close! But now it just seems so far. In fits of depression, I took to the internet for signs that there was somehow, someway that the tortuously close desired outcome could still come to fruition.
I did not find any current statement from Ms. Riquelme, but I did find this reason for unadulterated hope.
It appears that the lovely Larissa made a similar claim prior to the 2010 World Cup. As you are probably aware, Paraguay did not win that tournament either, but I did find this out from updatenews.ca:
The beautiful Paraguayan has good news for her eager fans who were disappointed by the loss. Riquelme says she will run naked through Asuncion, even though Paraguay did not win the World Cup. The curvy model says her nude run “will be a present to all of the players, and for all the people in Paraguay to enjoy.”
So, Larissa is into giving presents. That is good for her, and I am sure she is richly rewarded for such kindness in her soul. They say it is better to give than to receive. And with the amount of joy I feel with the possibility of receiving a gift of her posing nude on the pitch, I can only imagine what the feeling must be like for her. She can be like Santa Claus without the beard, belly, or suit.
All seriousness aside, this was a fantastic job of marketing by Ms. Riquelme. It will no doubt spawn a string of copycats, and thus enriching the sports landscape. And for that, I thank her.
