AUCKLAND: Ushering In The "2008 Year Of Changes" ... And No Excuses!

Another new year has rolled in, and I hope that it's a year of change for our Nico.

First thing I want to see changed is that I don't want to hear any more excuses from him.

Second thing is to get a new coach (won't happen at least for awhile).

He's got until the end of the Latin American swing for me. Then if he still is screwing around and no changes are in the forecast, my #1 fan status goes to Kid, and I'll just root for him as one of the many chicos that I follow. Not that he cares or anyone else, but for what it's worth.

And to dedicate this 2008 Year Of Changes, here's David Bowie's Changes.

VAMOS NICO! GET IT TOGETHER IN 2008! KICK ASS IN AUCKLAND!!

I never thought he'd get a WC in Auckland - I don't know why he thought that he might.

Supposedly he was going to either play the challenger in Brazil or play qualifying here. He's not at the challenger, and the last we saw on the Chilean online sites was that he was qualifying for Auckland.

I am wishing and praying for the best for Nico. I really want him to come back. He's too good to be playing so badly and going so far down in the rankings.

So a big and of good luck for Nico in 2008.

(And if he doesn't make changes, we'll just have to yell at him. )

There's an article about Nico in lun.com - but they don't let you link to it anymore so I don't know how to show it here. It's the same 'ol same 'ol but there's a picture.

It looks like either he cut his hair shorter or maybe it's just pulled back.

You have to find 5 minutes Kid to go look.

I don't care about the article - but there's a big picture of our Nico. And I'm not sure about his hair and wanted everyone else's opinion.
