One final thought on what I have in common with the average Argentine: being a Spurs fan. I love driving through the tiniest towns and seeing little kids playing stickball in the streets with San Antonio jerseys on.
Our reasons are really different, however. Manu Ginobili is the national hero and no one seems to listen to me when I explain that he's a whiner and no one likes him because the Latino drama doesn't fly in the NBA.
Sometimes I just really miss The Admiral.
