Last night i was watching to some tv news and one of them caught me hardly. Claudio Bravo, goal keeper from Chilean national team and the Spain sub division team Real Sociedad made a huge thing: He received a handwritten letter from an 8 years old little poor child that he wrote in September 2008, and he just got it yesterday. The little boy asked him to write him back, and Claudio didn’t just think about that, he called him and meet him, shared a few time and gave his goal keeper gloves to the little child. I was so excited watching this incredible gesture toward children and sent a message to the people saying that we’re not just different from each other, they just sporting people. Off course the little boy was so so so excited that his tears were not hidden, he just never expected that Claudio would even get the letter. (i wish so hardly watch players like Claudio Bravo playing for reds, check this video out and you tell me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiHzM8hkEg4&feature=related&pos=2 , he’s a real good player…)
Thinking about this, i remembered Steven Gerrard inspiration: His cousin dead in Hillsborough tragedy. I just can’t imagine how hard that might be, how painful for the family, and he as a football player, i imagine he felt quiet responsible of it, i would… But, he has worked so hard through the years and showed he’s one of the mos skilled football players, and he has become the real inspiration for all of us, for the team mattes, and for the new generation of young players that are arriving to the team. I really wish i could someday be the inspiration for anyone, at least my unborn childrens, ja ja ja.
But, in the meantime, as he and Fernando (and Sammy too) are my inspiration, i wanted to share with all of you other drawing i made, this time, just for Steven, the captain, our captain, and my inspiration. He’s the big leader we got now.
