This has been an incredible year for Spain and all things Spanish, no. The National Futbol team won the Euro Cup in 2008, then went on to win the World Cup in 2010. Rafa won the French Open, then Wimbledon and finally the Open (US).
And yet, CBS and the remaining media powers that be truncated its magnificence, its celebration with mere American football and the capitalism of filling time slots.
This kind of thing is not only ridiculous, but goes to show why we NEED to slow down and appreciate what we have; recall, Rafa fell to tendinitis in his knees--a sure sign of a crumbling career, no. NO! He came back, and with a vengeance.
When the GOAT discussion begins again, ALL will have to acknowledge the greatness of a young, yet seasoned 24 year old tennis veteran who now owns ALL 4 Grand Slam titles on ALL 4 surfaces.
Vamos indeed Rafa, vamos!
