Ginge in Madrid
Real Madrid's Bernabeu Stadium
19/01/04
During our look around the Bernabeu, we bumped into Legendary Spanish International Emilio Butragueno, who is working at Real Madrid as their assistant Sports Director. Unimpressed by this sighting and getting to be so close to one of Spain's footballing legends, Scissors started to go into one of his moods claiming he was too small and weedy. "He would never get into one of my teams, look at the size of him". Even when it was pointed out that this man had won 5 titles with Madrid back to back and played in a World Cup, Scissors would not back down. "I've got Mike Harrison". So no pressure Mike. You only have to be better than Butragueno. Scissors mood seemed to contiune as we made our way round the pitch when he got into an arguement with a non english speaking steward for not letting him touch the hallowed turf.
Dave P did his best to get some free tickets after racing to get the autograph of an unknown man in a suit. We later found out it was the President of Spain. His plan failed, and the President thought he was just one of his English followers. But Dave will now be added to his mailshot list and he will recieve monthly newsletters keeping him up to date with all the Presidents hot news.
