another reason why VDB deserves everything

The book La Futbolería will be presented tomorrow in the presence of VDB!  It’s made up of 11 essays by renowned sports journalists who have worked on Radio Marca’s “La Futbolería” program.  The essays relate their experiences with football, from Madrid’s La Séptima to Atleti’s Europe League to adventures with La Rojita to the World Cup, and how it has affected their personal lives.

VDB wrote the prologue for the book, and the epilogue is by his son Álvaro!  It’s a reproduction of a letter that he wrote by hand (that might be all that it takes to convince me to buy this book!)

All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Down’s Syndrome Foundation of Madrid, and the Alucinos La Salle foundation, which helps at-risk children in the San Fermín neighborhood, one of the poorest in Madrid.
