, I must own up to something. You may remember some months ago there was a thread about Rafa’s nickname, where you said you were going to call him Piggy and many people, me including, said it was derogatory and mean. Well, I recently realised that I was being a hypocrite.
I have been a huge ski-jumping fan for years and one of my all-time favourites is Andi Goldberger (now retired). Now before Andi jumped, he used to adjust his crash helmet and make this very funny/cute face, which reminded me of a pig’s snout, so I started calling him Piggy, very affectionately, of course.
It slipped my mind completely at the time of the nickname thread. When the ski-jumping season started last week I remembered this and my first thought was “OMG, I’m no better than Ron!”
But on second thought maybe I am slightly better
because I love Goldi, so my intentions were pure, so to speak, whereas you have Rafa on your “least favourite players” list.
Anyway, just wanted to say that now I understand better what you meant when you said it was funny.
