      This is from a while ago – part of an instructional set of DVDs that came out. Nereis8 has been posting these in bits and pieces and did this today since people needed a laugh. I know I can’t stop smiling when watching it!

    Awww, I’m so happy Uncle Toni’s around to tell Rafa some lame jokes and make him laugh, and smash birthday cake in his face next week or whatever.

    Thanks for the videos, miri :)

    If I remember right, meriko said they’re talking about all the things Toni told Rafa when he was younger- like he’d make it rain if he wasn’t playing well etc. :D

    Well, thank f**k for this clip! Fantastically awesome! It feels like a warm balm for my aching heart…

    Watching the beginning of this makes me wonder if Rafa actually does have some trouble with his underpants. Or wait, maybe he’s not wearing any!
    *concentrates REALLY hard on looking up Rafa’s shorts, again*

    Suddenly, Uncle Toni got hotter. :D

    But…um…the way Rafa was struggling to sit in those first few seconds makes me think he has a bad case of hemorrhoids! ;)

  15. nereis says:

    He looks incredible hot stretching and just being relaxed.

    And oh God, his ARMS.

    Watching this delightful video from happier times and reading Rafa’s amazing blog entry from today has done so much to lift my heavy heart. What a champion our Rafa is!! I’m so glad to have finally found a group who respects and appreciates this man and his beautiful spirit. What lessons he continues to teach. Thank you so much to this site and to Nereis8 for sharing.

    Yeah it was really nice tosee Rafa’s blog, I wasn’t expecting one, after the loss, God bless Rafa, gorgeous adoreable Rafael Nadal.

    the video says: As all know, Rafael was very naive when he was small .. more naive than many other children and in the same way that convinced him that Tony was a magician and that could make rain when Rafa lost a match, also made him believe he was a famous soccer player into Milan Club of soccer (one of the most important clubs in the world) and that was the best and that was the champion rider in the Tour of France (most important race of bycicle). Here what counts is that one day Rafa went to see his uncle playing soccer. uncle’s Toni had been told to Rafa that he was a crack of soccer and that he had earned millions of euros, and when Rafa arrived home after uncle’s match he told his Mother: Well Toni is not as good player. From this time his uncle began to say him other stories for undo the lies and then he was saying him that Milan wanted him to throw but he does not wanted and that one day in a match of soccer He saw his name on a banner that read: We love you .. He thought he had affection but the banner said “We love you to kill” And this was what aroused the hilarity of Uncle Toni. And I am thinking about how well Rafa has passed with these stories and then I how personally would have liked to see the face this child Nadal. It is a very nice story like many of others they have.

    Uf, I hope you can understand it. It’s too long!.
