a cutie story

No news about Seb (and thr others..) fir a long time, so I put here a nice story I read on arnaud's forum .
It's a letter of a woman, whom son (9 years old) met sebastien in Lyon, (he is an huge fan of Seb),then Arnaud..if i have time tomorrow, i 'll translate...if esther has time before me...lol

" Je tiens à tous vous remercier pour vos splendides photos qui ont fait le bonheur de mon fils Jérome, 9ans, qui est un fan de Séb en premier et d'Arnaud en 2ème. A Lyon il a eu la chance de les voir tous les deux. Pour l'histoire, c'est une belle histoire d'enfant, mon fils avait acheté à Seb un cadeau qu'il avait laissé au Sofitel. C'est là-bas qu'il l'a vu, et la rencontre a été merveilleuse: deux timides, et Seb, qui finalement après lui avoir parlé et remercié pour les cadeaux va vers son sac et lui offre une casquette..et mon fils qui la prend et soudain lui rend en lui disant "mais toi tu n'en n'auras plus" !!!!!...l'innocence des enfants!!!!!! lol
J'ai vu un Seb tout sourire qui a rassuré l'enfant et qui lui a dédicacé la casquette, lui disant qu'il voulait absolument qu'il la mette...et Jérome est reparti avec des beaux souvenirs, et a voulu remercié encore seb. à sa manière ,car c'est un enfant sensible il a fait un cadeau pour les enfants de Seb.
Il l'a ensuite donné à Arnaud qu'on a vu après la finale au Sofitel, qui a été super, car il lui a spontanément donné son maillot et Jérôme lui a dit "Pardonne moi mais c'est Seb mon préféré et toi mon deuxième". Arnaud lui a répondu "Tu as raison, moi c'est mon meilleur ami, et puis moi je n'ai pas encore d'enfants alors tu n'as pas de cadeau à me faire, ne t'inquiète pas".

This kid was very lucky ( but I think it's easier to get satisfaction when u're a a child, players are melting...)

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Re: a cutie story

omg ok thats what i'm goign to do next year...i look young i'm going to pretend i'm like 7 and do that!!!

ok translation:
My son, Jerome who is 9 years old, is a huge fan of Seb (his favourite player) and Arnaud (second favourite player). He had the chance to meet Arnaud and Seb at Lyon. Jerome had bought a present for Seb (and his kids) that he had left for him at the Sofitel. It was there where he saw him and their meeting was amazing: After talking and thanking him for the present, Seb went to his bag and gave him a cap…and my son took it and suddenly he says…’but then…you won’t have it anymore!! Innocence of children…

Seb had a huge smile on his face and reassured him that he would autograph the cap, telling him that he really did want to give it away…and Jerome left with two fantastic memories and wanted to thank Seb again. He then saw Arnaud at the Sofitel, who was really great, he gave him his shirt (?!!!) and Jerome said to him, ‘I’m sorry but Seb is my favourite player, and youre my second.” Arnaud then responded, “You’re right, he’s my best friend and I don’t have any kids to you don’t have to make me any presents, don’t worry.”

The first time I met Seb, I got to hang on to his sweater for a good 10 seconds while he signed my ticket... But then I had to give it back

Allez to the French gents and a big up to Tim! Further shouts out to Goran, Mr. Sampras and my two favourite former-players-turned-commentators: Johnny Mac and Boris!
