Call me biased, but I don’t think a practice goes by without many moments such as this. Players don’t have to like each other, don’t have to enjoy laughing together and working together, but it sure helps. I suspect part of the reason our club goes like a rocket is that the players never seem to forget that despite all the pressure, and all the millions and millions of dollars, this is still just a game.
And here is Valdes reminding newest acquisition David Villa of that very thing. Yes it’s intense here, but get used to it. You’re going to laugh a lot, too.
And this, of course, is just clamoring for a “Caption This.” Have at it, folks.
“So this is the work that I have to do to hang with the best of the best, huh? Okay. Bring it.”
