Yay, Star started the cheering thread! :woohoo: :woohoo:

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

waiting anxiously for Rafa :cheerleader: :cheerleader: :cheerleader:

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 :o

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,

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