Again! A Rewarding Read To Start This Father’s  (or is it?, Papi’s) Day Off!

Just quickly connecting a few nuggets and gems I come across of importance in an Afrispora way (Africa + Diaspora= Afrispora)

This excerpt is a quote from an interview of which does a range of thinga primarily related to how David Ortiz is a Father figure to Hanley Ramirez and other Dominician and Latin American players.

“David
Oh, you don’t wanna know. Hahaha. Ohhh, no. But what I’m saying is, it’s how we are. We want to make every one of us happy. We know what struggle means. We know how important it is to have your second family. When I see people struggle, it bothers me. I don’t care if you play for any other ball club. I remember, I saw this thing that Jackie Robinson said about how the importance of life is not what you do for yourself, it’s when you make a difference in somebody else’s life. That’s so true.”
