QOTD: Xavi On Midget Bullfighting


Q:  Why have shows with midgets in the bullfighting ring in Zaragoza been prohibited?

A:  So, does that mean I can’t perform?

Brilliant, no? We like a man who can make a joke about his size – the rather-talented midfielder stands at about 5’7″. After all, good things (like shiny things from Tiffany) come in small packages.

    Just to clarify, that's NOT the question… there's no bullfighting in that question although they ask him about it before. It's 2 separate questions actually…

    Interviewer – Would you prohibit bullfighting?

    Xavi – I respect those people who go and see it but I haven't gone in my life. There's nothing like a ball.

    Interviewer – Why have they prohibitted the midgets in the 'fiestas' in Zaragoza?

    [for those of you that don't know, it's very popular in Spain in the summer for towns/villages to have kinda like a funfair with rides, food and lots of the local people usually held in the center of town]

    Xavi – Oh, so that means I can't perform then?

    Xavi is intelligent, humble, funny and hates watches like me! haha Thanks for posting this, I really enjoyed it. It only makes me love and respect him more than I did. This is his fun side but I also like to see his bad temper on the field at times. For those that want to know his family and home, check out this video. Wish all ballers were like Xavi. Even his dog plays the game! lol
