From Sports Pumpkin To Aravis School
2021-01-28 | by CusiGO
I’ve told you that sports has always been my club when I was a child, and iribal is and is my main sports reference. I’m sure I’ve talked to them, too, and it’s boring, about what my sport is and all these questions.
I may not have told them, because maybe few people like to talk about their dismissal, that is, when I had the chance to sign for Bilbao club for the first time, the athlete gave me pumpkin.
That was in 1978. It was said that there was a boy who worked as a goalkeeper in UDA. It was said that he was not bad at all. Pedro Marie, my father, once told me that some scouts came to watch the game, although none of them, as they say now, decided to bet on the skinny boy. One day, I heard that pirou gainza, the mythical extreme athlete and ultimate scout, came to watch our game at ibala stadium. Well, I didn’t know until I played. Thank goodness, because I haven’t slept all week. Pirou’s conclusion was that the profile was so interesting, but not so interesting, that he took me to Lezama for the low-level games.
At that time, talking about Lezama was like talking about Oxford, Cambridge or Harvard. Come on, only the best people are called to enjoy the green grass and the hot water guaranteed changing rooms.
They even have a covered ward! Day on the ground, put on red and white clothes. I know they won’t take me. I’m not up to the standard they asked me to wear a number one shirt.
But when a door closed and a window opened, my father told me that he was interested in the Aravis sports car 30 kilometers (an hour) from home. My mother asked me to continue my study (there was never any doubt about it at home).
There, I went to Vitoria with all my teachers. Although it made me very old, don’t think football is always popular.
Aravis gave me an opportunity to measure, train, demand and develop myself. Learn and grow in a team they call Barcelona, because there are a lot of great players there (I met a man named Jorge Valdano there, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he Aravis is my home, my club, my refuge, and he trusts me when things get less obvious. It taught me pure professional football, unpaid wages, cold water after training, bus travel with sandwiches, and the value of a cabin. The most important thing is competition. Let the team face adversity, train, train, improve and improve.
After a few seasons, the athlete decided to give me a ticket to heaven. Well, to be more precise, I won the right to enjoy this pass, and the rest is better known.
This is a week ago, sports Alves is 100 years old. Lezama is 50 years old. Arete shabaleta, Vitoria, Bilbao, an exciting journey, full of hours of road travel, rain, fog, illusion, disappointment, some civil defense control, more than two stupid goals, and many friends to share experience, as we grow older, we become more different.
Zorionak sports, zorionak sports.
