Today is the first day of Spurs training camp, and Manu Ginobili took the opportunity of his first official drive to work of the season to do his first video blog, posted below. For those who don’t speak Spanish, a translation (provided by @regarcia80) follows.
Here I am on my way to the first official training day of the 2017-2018 season.
I’m still at it, what I am doing, I don’t know but here I am.
I’m really excited to start… wanting to rev up… wanting to see where I am physically compared to my twenty somethings teammates but I’m happy, happy knowing how fortunate I am to be able do this thing that I love so much at this (…..)
So here we go, were going to see what Pop has planned for this day, because this will go quick. This year they shortened the preseason and today, September 26th, we will start training and then I think the 2nd or 3rd we will play the first game. We will start the season on the 14th, or the 15th so we’re almost there.
The good thing is that I’ve been in San Antonio for a month trying to get into shape, trying to oil up and calibrate this rusty machine, and it’s going well.
I want to keep send a small video every once in a while. It won’t be daily like I originally wanted, but I will try to do it relatively frequently. I’m still not sure in what format I will send it, whether it be via Vlogs, Instagram, or something, maybe YouTube again but I’ll figure it out. Hopefully it will be of interest to everyone, if not, don’t worry about watching. (laughs) But in a few days we’ll do it again and we’ll see how I feel doing it and how it goes.
Big hugs to everyone! Over and out
