September 17th, 2013

He played Deportivo Maicao against Junior (the powerful Junior from Otto Albert Dacunha) and el profe neck asked us that we narraramos the party. That, since you are new, will alternate with two companions who already have travel and, to our surprise these companions, turned out to be, precisely, Eladio Narvaez and Jairo Romero. Things came out perfectly and thereafter we could walk alone, but our friends were always willing to advise us and keep us company as many times needed them. I was looking at my side, in the dusty athletic track of our ancient Stadium and non me lo He believed.

But there was Eladio, and Jairo, was there with his easy Word, its exact verb, your precise comment, your innate joy, his extensive vocabulary. And by his side I was, with the open mouth and chest filled with pride for the opportunity to share that moment with my hero, my teacher. My memory tells me the Maicao Deportivo with a goal in the last minute tied one and on that day the swollen rojinegra was the happiest in the world. And I, the more stunned commentator on the planet today, years later, the news want me to fill the heart of sadness, but then I imagine Jairo Romero reaching the hidden country of immortality where must meet an appointment with destiny, quote that is only reserved to those who every day till the present and build the future.
