Yay, Star started the cheering thread!

Why is the 'Evento' Meat and Great, is this like the Spanish equivalent to Meet and Greet in English? Although I should probably refrain from my language questions.

It was funny. But I like the "Great Nadal" part.

Re: ¡¡Vina del Mar!!

waiting anxiously for Rafa

please forgive my never changing negative attitude but my expectation is low, if he could just manage to win one match, it would be ok for me

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: ¡¡Vina del Mar!!

Rafa should be leaving Spain in couple of hours, so he will probably post a picture from the airport. Then we can be sure that he really intends to play in Chile

Re: ¡¡Vina del Mar!!

Well, guys we've not been this close to Rafa playing for quite a long time. I'm optimistic. I would love to see him playing but I don't
Think there are live streams, If someone finds one please post it here. ,

At this point I'm even excited about Mallorca airport pics. Maybe he flies private this time tho,

Re: ¡¡Vina del Mar!!

Thank you so much for that link!

If you don't mind, I'll make it so people can play it in this thread.

It's great to see that his eyebrows are in excellent working condition.
