Just when I thought I was going to have a mini vacation (though I did get to take a beach trip with my buddy Tamar and parents yesterday) turns out Pumas and Monarcas are playing at the Coliseum tomorrow. So today, I headed over to the Pumas press conference at Mi Pueblo Food Center in Oakland. Anytime, the press conference is in the parking lot of a grocery store, you know you are in for a good time.
Four of the Pumas players walked up, Angel Dinamita of Dinamitation Consulatioin introduced them and welcomed the fans and media, y US PresswiRRRRReee, ha, that's me!!
The players were:
Juan Francisco Palencia
Juan Carlos Cacho
and Efrain Velarde
There were two cameras for Spanish TV stations, who asked questions one on one. Otherwise there wasn't any other photo media except for me.
Everything is taking place in Spanish, and all a little too fast plus some slang, so I gave up on trying to follow what's going on, then I hear in English to me "do you have any questions?" -- "no, thanks, just photos"... then back to Spanish facing the players, and the guy next to me looks at me laughing and says "right?"... I smile with that look of I-have-no-idea-what's-going-on and he says "He just told the players you are single" haha, aye aye aye! So stuck around a bit to get a few shots of them signing autographs and promptly left before I found myself agreeing to go to dinner with one of the players ;-)
