I’m not very sporty, so it was thanks to your questions to Molly and to Guillem and Rodrigo’s comments on the blog that I discovered Rudy Fernández,  the famous Majorcan basketball player who is currently playing with Portland Trail Blazers .

Maybe in a few years Rodrigo will be playing in the NBA too, who knows? Judging from the photo he published yesterday in this blog, it certainly might happen.

In the meantime, let’s see if we learn a bit more abour this excellent player.

Complete this fact file.  Let’s see who is the first one to post the correct answers to the blog.  The rest can just copy the answers in the notebooks, but you can also contribute to the blog with new findings about Rudy.

  1. In Majorca there is a sportscentre that bears his name. Do you know where?
  2. Date of birth:
  3. School in Palma:
  4. When did he leave Palma?
  5. When did he move to the USA?
  6. What are his parents’ jobs:
  7. Has he got any brothers or sisters?
  8. Teams he played with:
  9. Height and Weight:
  10. How long has he been in Portland?
  11. Which position does he play in?
  12. How old do you think he was in the small photo on the right?

To make your task easier, I have found some videos in you tube:

The fisrt one is a song with some Spanglish and slang asking vor votes. Xilin and Judith did not need one for their campaign! I  have included the lyrics. Can recognize any slang words Molly taught us the other day?

Blazers up in here tonight

Fan voton’ (we got the Spaniard up in here)

Fan voton’

Fan voton’

España España

I never knew a dude that could dunk like this

Make a fan wanna vote Spanish

Como se llama? Si! Su Rudy! Si! Mi dunka

España españa (Me vota)

Oooh Rudy when you dunk like that

You make Superman look bad

Rapid Roy and Carpool

And you took a drive down to Phoenix

 

Oooh you think it’s right

You know that ball don’t lie

That’s why they call him the Spanish flight

The elevation, like a spaceman

Suddenly I’m a fellow immigration

Sergio he can see you – don’t stop movin’

And you’re cutting it baseline

Real soon – you dudes will be alley oopin’ – In the same suerte

‘Cause you move it like a matador

Nobody can let it go, and you will get a perfect score

No way, you and serge connected – the world must respect it

And say the trailblazers wrecked it

I never knew a dude that could dunk like this

Make a fan wanna vote Spanish

Como se llama? Si! Su Rudy! Si! Mi dunka

España españa (Me vota)

Oooh Rudy when you dunk like that

You make Superman look bad

Rapid Roy and Carpool

And you took a drive down to Phoenix…

In the second one, Rudy sings and speaks in English. I think he could teach us how to play basket and Daryl, Sara, Marta, Tatiana…. well most of you helped by Paquita, your music teacher, could teach him how to sing and play some music . He also needs some English pronunciation practice, don’t you think? I’m sure Molly would do a great job, and who knows… it might end up …. well you tell me.

Enjoy the  rest of the weekend
