The best part of the sport


On Sunday I teared up, by osmosis, I think, when watching the pelotari’s reactions to one of Parejas’ semifinals. Tolosa had to retire in tears due to a fiber break when he was reaching the Final. Altuna, his striker, saddened, also cried. Even his rivals were almost speechless. It’s so beautiful, moving. Rivals on the court, but friends.

That same day, LaLiga Genuine closed in Lezama with 22 teams and over 300 participants. That’s an illusion, that’s sport, and not the fair play that UEFA and the Champions League pride themselves on. It’s great to see them hug each other anytime with teammates, rivals, coaches, fans or family members, regardless of shirts or flags. “Share before competing” is their motto. Really exciting. I saw a lot of people cry, and not because they lost.

In contrast, I found it difficult to digest the sheer silliness that drove more than 90,000 spectators to the Nou Camp to witness Piqué’s Kings League invention. So much exacerbated frivolity left me cold. The trophy shone in the hands of Shakira’s ex like the gold necklaces of some of the guests.

I stick to the real ones and the pelotari, their message goes to the heart, not the pocket.
