The biting of the trophy when he wins... pretty silly as far as I'm concerned but there are people out there who wait to see him bite the trophy and love it.
to bite the trophy is a tradition in Spain by some athletes. Rafa was congratulated some months ago by the Spanish dentists associstion because he has perfect teeths.
btw, yesterday the most important poll in 5 years was released in Spain about the Spaniards most admired and loved and also the most hated,
top 10, most admired:
1 Iker Casillas, captain of national football team, gk of real madrid
2 Queen Sofia
3 King Juan Carlos
5 Prince Felipe
6 Fernando Alonso, f1 champion twice
7 Placido Domingo, opera singer
8 Pau Gasol, la lakers player
9 Montserrrat Caballe, opera singer
10 Concha Velasco, actress.
as you can see Rafa beats the future king...and he is beaten only by the king, the quuen and a soccer player who is called the saint in this deeply catholic country.
