Same client…new fuck up. Just one night after the male models incident.
The 25-year-old grew up Chihuahua, Mexico, where he fell in love with basketball as a teenager. Frustrated by a lack of hoops opportunity there, Gutierrez sneaked across the border illegally to attend high school and play ball at Denver’s Lincoln High.
Just 16, Gutierrez lived in an apartment with three other undocumented Mexican teens who had their own hoop dreams. Overcoming poverty and frequent hunger pains, Gutierrez excelled in Denver, but few colleges were interested.
After a post-grad year of prep school, the guard accepted a scholarship offer from the University of California, Berkeley — but only after another young player had reneged on his commitment to the school to free up the spot.
Gutierrez initially made his name in Berkeley as a reserve of limited talent, but one whose passion knew no bounds and whose kamikaze hustle plays could single-handedly change the course of a game. Over four years there, Gutierrez built himself into a star, winning 2012 Pac-12 Player of the Year honors as a senior.
When he went un-drafted by the NBA and decided to play minor league basketball, most Cal fans figured that was the end of the Jorge story: A nice college player with an inspiring story who would go on to do himself proud somewhere other than basketball.
Then, on Thursday, the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets signed Gutierrez to a 10-day contract.

"Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up".
The official video for this song tells the story of an immigrant family— a father seeking work as a day laborer on a California street corner, a mother traversing treachery territory to reach the U.S. and her husband, and a daughter protesting in support of immigration reform.
We’re reminded of the many stories we’ve heard while producing our “Deported”, “Cross Border Killings”, and “Illegal America" episodes. And, that the "11 million true stories" that inspired this video are being played out in the everyday lives of many.
Capturing Mendoza’s Grape Harvest Festival on Instagram
Dating back to the 17th century, the Fiesta Nacional de la Vendimia (“The National Grape Harvest Festival”) is one of Argentina’s most important celebrations. Every year, wine enthusiasts from all over the world gather in the city of Mendoza for fireworks, music, dancing and—of course—lots of wine. As part of the celebrations in the months leading up to the festival, pageants take place in Mendoza’s 18 provincial districts to crown local young beauty queens.
The Grape Harvest Festival officially kicks off with a parade where each queen rides in on an elaborate float decorated with grape harvest motifs. The queens wear costumes designed to celebrate the characteristics of their district’s winemaking. The following day, another traditional parade takes place featuring gauchos dressed in traditional cowboy attire.
The Grape Harvest Festival ends with a large show at the Frank Romero Day Greek Theater. When the clock strikes midnight, the new Grape Harvest Queen is crowned before a large crowd who have gathered to steal a glimpse of the new queen on her coronation night.
