I saw an article from Spain where they talk about this song ( and even translate it ). I recorded it on November 14th for this blog last year and have gotten an outpouring of support from Spanish basketball fans. I’m a big Rubio fan, but I also like Gasol, Navarro and a few more up and coming players from there.
Whats’ really cool is that now that it’s gotten this much attention, maybe Ricky Rubio himself has listened to it. If so, holla at me Ricky. I’d love to come to a FC Barcelona game!!!!!
I just had to do another NBA song. Pau Gasol has been killing it this year. The Laker’s new strategy is to let him be the high scorer most nights. Kobe gets to rest up until crunch time while Pau gets serious consideration for MVP. He’s definitely the best forward in the league now and Spain may give the U.S. a run in the London Olympics. They’ve got Navarro and Ricky Rubio too. Thanks for listening!
Ricky Rubio is still giving this blog an unbelievable amount of hits. That’s awesome. What is also awesome is that it’s not going to be raining all day today. Although I don’t mind working in the rain. I actually like it. There is only so long that being soaked is tolerable. Today’s song is a jazzy acoustic number. It’s kind of about seeing your life as it happens (instead of in hindsight). Thanks for listening!
”Outside the Lines” on ESPN did a story on Ricky Rubio this morning. NBA fans have been waiting on him to come over to the States ever since he gave the USA team a run during the Olympics. I’m a fan. I don’t think he’ll ever play here unless Minnesota trades his rights. Minneapolis or Barcelona? Which would you pick? Thanks for listening!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
