today’s the day for loads of Fernando Llorente!
Fernando Llorente presented his web site and FB yesterday at the Hotel Carlton in Bilbao, though it looks like he won’t be joining twitter for the moment (I’m hoping Javi (!!!) can convince him). He said he hopes people will be able to “get to know him better” and be up to date with his “day to day” through these sites. Fer also announced at the event that he has become an ambassador of the NGO Save the Children – I love footballers who do charity work! He was accompanied by his parents Fernando and Isabel, as well as several of his teammates, including Javi (!!!) and Andoni Iraola.
It also looks like Javi (!!!) put on some real shoes! Yay!
We also got to see Fer welcoming us to his web site in three languages – English, Euskara and Spanish!
It looks like the English lessons are paying off, although he might just need a bit more practice – I volunteer!! And is it totally obvious that Fer is most comfortable in Spanish? He’s chattiest in the Spanish version, with the Euskara version is broken up into manageable segments. And wow, the famous hair was frizzy that day!
Earlier today, Athletic presented their new kits, but unfortunately and much to my dismay, Javi (!!!) did not model the new shirt, and there was no underwear either. Javi (!!!) did wear a pink shirt, brown shorts and (ugh) white flip flops. I guess he is finding it really hot, with that atypical weather sweeping through the north. Fer and Andoni were there too.
