Today, october 5th, the great José Froilán González is arriving at his first 80 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Sadly, he never could win the F-1 World Championship, but as a human being he is a true champion. Every day, he receives in this office in Buenos Aires, to everyone who wants to know him, or simply ask him for an autograph. I met Froilán twice, in 1994 and 1999, and always received me as we were friends for 100 years, he usually receives you telling "Qué hacés querido" (How do you do, darling!!!!), and it makes you feel so good................a very nice person...............



P.S.: This is a confidence between us, TNFers, but usually Froil√°n don¬īt charge for autographs (please, dont¬īt tell this to SM) :lol:
