Hiya Tony!!
Yeah, that goes into the file....along with practically everything else you post. Heh heh.
Recently, I saw Iriondo in a Partido on Canal Vasco (it was pretty unmemorable in itself so I don't remember who else was in it), and was struck by Iriondo's performance. While he did not appear to be of Irastorza quality, he seemed to be having a wonderful time playing and the fans seemed to love it....and him. He seemed, if I may be schmaltzy, like one of the good guys. I know it's really difficult to tell from just watching something like that over the tube and then assuming a position but I think I'm pretty safe there. I wrote to Larry about him and he had some things to say....none unflattering and mostly agreeing with me and adding some items of information I was lacking. You have added more and this increases my knowledge of this game and for that, I thank you.
Frankly, I'd love to go to a game with you and the crew. I'd probably learn more in that time than I have in the last year.
