¡oye FP, remember this name for 2028!

January 15, 2012

It’s not just our boys who are adorable, our fans are adorable as well!  Four-year-old Gaspar visited the team during the meet and greet session in Palma on Friday, and he made a big impression not only on the club, which dedicated long segments of their video on the fan session to him, but also Álvaro Arbeloa and Esteban Granero (see, even El Pirata can’t help but look over)!

Here is the very fun conversation between Álvaro and Gaspar (1:50-2:45).  I love the interaction between the two of them! 

What’s your name?  Gaspar.  Gaspar?  Yes.  What’s my name?  Arbeloa.  Very good, give me a high five.  (They high five each other).  Are you a big Madrid fan?  Yes.  Yes?  Are we going to win everything this year?  Yes.  (Who can’t play today?)  Khedira.  You like Sami, you like Khedira?  Yes.  He’s great, no?  Yes.  Who is your favorite player?  Cristiano.  Cristiano?  Yes.  That’s great.  Do you play football?  ¿Eh?  [Jajajaja!!!]  Do you play football?  Yes.  What position do you play?  I’m a forward.  Forward?  Do you score as many goals as Cristiano?  Almost, almost.  Almost as many?  I’ll tell Florentino to sign you up.  Yes?  How about that?  You’ll come to Madrid to play?  Okay.

You can tell that Álvaro’s great with children!  Alba is a lucky girl.  And he really likes to repeat answers, no?

Gaspar also featured in another segment (00:44-1:13).  Here’s the translation: Who is your favorite player on Madrid?  Cristiano.  And where is Cristiano here?  (Gaspar points).  And why do you like Cristiano?  I like Cristiano because I have his shirt [jajaja, love this reasoning!!!!!].  Look over here.  Because you… because I have his shirt.  And you also like that one you just saw on the bus.  Ramos.  And the one whose hair you saw.  Casillas.  You also saw Casillas’ hair.  Yes, but I didn’t see his face.  [Jajaja!!!  This kid is adorable!]

There’s also more of Gaspar being adorable at the very end of the video.

And be sure to also check out Javier and Raúl (00:27-00:43).  They interview each other, and it’s pretty adorable as well.  They say, “Hello, I’m Javier.  And I’m Raúl.  And what can you tell me about Cristiano Ronaldo?  He’s a máquina, he never fails.  And what can you tell me about Madrid?  It’s the best in the world.”  Indeed, both the team and the fans!

    I can only hope my child is as well-versed in their Real Madrid knowledge at just 4 years old! Thanks for sharing the translation as always, Una!

      haha. agreed. I teach middle school Spanish. 2 of my students named themselves Iker and Xabi (I may have encouraged it) and every Monday they enter class and ask “how’d we play this weekend?” It’s cute. Our next unit is on sports. Southern Pennsylvania better be prepared to have a bunch of little Madrid fans running around. Maybe we’ll create a class Peña 🙂

    Eeeee his little red cheeks! And that precious haircut. And what a cute name! But of course he has to cute-compete with Álvaro, which is not an easy job. (I want to see a home video of a chat between him and Alba!)

    oooohh.. my heart is melting.
    Gaspar is soo cute. Arbeloa and Granero is a truly classy canterano. An madridista it self. I hope Gaspar wish come true. Wa rae gonna win 3 title in the end of season..

    P.S: Granero.. even i’m gonna feel so sad if you leave this club, i hope your choice is the best for your happines in the future. =D . It must be hard for you to search a place in the first team.. you deserve a better place to increase your quality.

    El Pirata always in my heart

    He has fabulous taste in footballers. Sami and Cristiano and Iker – midfield, forward, and goalkeeping geniuses. It doesn’t get any better.

    I’m taking down the name.

    Hi, amiga. I have to congratulate you for this amazing blog that makes me smile everytime I read it.

    This is like the unofficial bible for all madridistas around the world…and even better!

    By the way can you tell me where do you find the pictures and the gifts?? ´cause I´ve been looking for them in google and Real Madrid´s webside and ….nothing, you´re the only one who has the gifts -at least I didn´t do a good search-

    Hoping your next post!

      The reason why I’m the only one with the gifs is because I make them all myself.

    Florentino should invite him to the Bernabeu as a nice gesture.
