Dance, Vinicius, Dance!

It doesn’t look like Vinicius is going to stop dancing anytime soon. He made his debut with Castilla on August 26, 2018 and, a week later, the captain of the Atleti subsidiary had already bitten him on the head. In a decision described as Solomonic, the referee of that match warned both footballers, biter and bitten, with yellow cardboard, which would be as much as punishing Dracula and Lucy equally.

It was when it was suggested that fielding a player who had cost 45 million euros in Second B matches was a kind of Madridista provocation for the rest of the clubs in the category. I admit that I feared for the boy’s physical integrity, that he should not have understood too much of what was happening around him, but, between jokes, Vinicius recovered, continued facing and failing and, against all logic, was also able to avoid the hospital. So dance, Vinicius, dance.

I’ve seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have seen how the show was mounted around a false complaint of racism committed by a footballer from Cádiz on another from Valencia and skipped rope on the presumption of innocence of the theoretical aggressor and how a striker in Mallorca was told to leave to pick bananas or at the Camp Nou they called him macaco without anyone tearing their clothes too much. The striker in question, of course, was Vinicius.

How is Vinicius not going to dance if hardly anyone believed in him, if he has been the subject of jokes and continuous jokes and today he is the figurehead of the current European champion and one of his goals was worth La Decimocuarta? How is he not going to dance if he was the meat of memes and now he is worth four times what they paid in his day? Dance, Vinicius, dance.

He dances bachata and kizomba, rumba and salsa, tango and merengue and, above all, he dances a lot of samba. He turns Madrid into an immense sambodrome. He dances because he won’t care if you don’t and they’ll keep tickling you and accusing you of everything. Face, dribble, shoot, score goals and dance. Be happy and dance until you can’t anymore. Become the new John Travolta. Let the Bee Gees play, ‘listen to the ground, there is movement all around’. Let the Saturday night fever boil.
