  • Attention whore post: One of my dad's dreams finally came true

    I wouldn't post this otherwise, but my dad has been bitching to my mother for years to get him to see the Boca Juniors down in Argentina....he just sent me this...

    QUOTE
    Yes, Mom and I made to La Boca to visit with the Boca Juniors. They were prepared for our visit. The trainer had all the players sign a banner for us and this was given to us. We met and talked with the coach and had our picture taken with him. We met with several of the players outside and our pictures with them. We watched them practice and took some pictures. We were offered box seat tickets for the next home game. Unfortunately, the date is after we get home. We will be offered these seats on our next visit. So we had a great time with the Boca Juniors. I am very happy about all this. All of our big shot contacts never came through over the years but Mom and I became friends with two young waiters at an upscale bar and they pulled it off. We are taking them and their wives to a Tango dinner club this Thursday night as our way of saying thanks.

    Anyway, GO CARDS!

      Maradona....he was always a Maradona fan and his mother-in-law liked them, too (one of the few things they ever agreed on)....my mom loves Riverplate and hates Boca...she still won't let him attend a game for fear of his safety [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

          Does this have anything to do with Del Boca Vista?

            Boca is like the breeding ground for Argentina's soccer talent....he never misses a game

              Honest question: You guys are talking about soccer, right?
              Of course you do.

                  No, just young, sweaty, chiseled Argentinian boys. Specifically those with raging coke habits. You know, the usual.

                        I figured this was about Van Slyke getting a coaching job.
                        Are you on the list?
