    Well, first you need a vacuum with the proper amount of suction…;)

      God I love it every time Craig says that.

      And yes – I knew titling the post that way would produce some fun comments. ;)

        “God I love it every time Craig says that.”

        I knew you would. I want to find out when his birthday is and send him one. A robotic, skeleton version. ;)

        Alright. Sorry to go OT.

    My little nephew who is six is in no shape or form a tennis fan, he tolerates me taking over the tv to watch Rafa but that’s about it, but I showed him this today as he loves football and the all the tricks you can do and well he hearts Rafa now. He’s in complete awe of him and has watched the video numerous times this evening and has even questioned me on when he can see more of Rafa. I think we have a new tennis fan on our hands!

      Awwwwwwwwwww. :D

      I love little boys between ages four and six. They are my favorites! So uninhibited. They’ll tell you exactly what they think.

        But love that innocent age siempre!!

    It took me a while to see the other video. For the people who didn’t notice it (like me).

  16. faeaki7 says:

    OMG I love these clips, cheeky Rafa showing off what a great footballer he would have made, this is just sooo adooreable! thankyou thankyou, thankyou!!!

    What a showoff!

    I was a football girl growing up. The tricks Rafa does on this video are very very difficult, especially the ones on the shoulder. I would be so proud of myself if I was able to do all that he does. But noticed there was lots of editing involved in making this video ;-)

    Ahh…He’s good and knows it. I like non-modest Rafa!

    I can’t watch this vid: it says it’s a private video…?
    The link k posted doesn’t work for me either, I have to sign in to watch it, apparently.
