FC Barcelona este si pentru femei! Cel putin pentru mine!

La dorinta copilului, am vizitat clubul FC Barcelona. Vladimir avea un target clar- sa vada stadionul pe care joaca Messi.

Fiind in orasul cu pricina, la o saptamana dupa atentatele teroriste, am zis ca vizitarea stadionului este o optiune. Asa ca am cautat chestii care sa ma determine si sa ma motiveze si pe mine sa fac vizita (oricum mergeam acolo).

Mi-am adus aminte de perioada in care Romania avea echipa de fotbal si, copil fiind, stateam in fata televizorului pentru a urmari meciurile echipei nationale la Campionatele Mondiale si Europene. Mi-am adus aminte de meciurile de Champions League in care jucau fotbalistii mei preferati (criterii de adolescenta), de stadioanele pline care aveau o atmosfera ce iti patrundea pe sub piele si prin sticla televizorului.

La naiba! mi-am zis. E cel mai mare stadion din Europa. Are aproape 100.000 de locuri. Mergem! De abia astept!

Am pornit spre stadion. Am luat bilete si am intrat. De la intrare m-a luat un sentiment de marketing excesiv. Toata lumea era pusa sa faca poza cu un fular in mana. Am zis PAS! Eu vreau altceva. Asa ca am pornit in stilul meu.

Usor am intrat in atmosfera. Ma simteam ca pe platourile de filmare. Mergeam pe culoarul pe care intra jucatorii impreuna cu cate un copil de mana inaintea meciului. Sunetele ce se auzeau pe acel culoar iti faceau sangele sa clocoteasca de parca te astepta un stadion intreg sa te aplaude. Am iesit pe gazon si eram ca Jerry la New York. Woooow! Ce mare eeee! Iti dai seama cum se aude cand canta tot stadionul. Iti dai seama cum se aude cand da Barcelona gol! WOOOOW!

Am stat in tribune, am stat in locul comentatorilor, am intrat in sala in care se tin conferintele de presa, in vestiare, in locurile pe unde trec marii fotbalisti pe care numai la televizor ii vedem. Am un sentiment de bucurie si recunostinta ca am avut sansa asta.

21032769_1593704233983393_8065579492728595287_nTraseul de vizitare cuprindea diverse obiective. Unul dintre ele era poza cu trofeul suprem. Nu era obligatorie poza.Era optionala dar din punctul meu de vedere un must. Imi aduc aminte cum Gica Popescu, capitanul Barcelonei la vremea respectiva, a ridicat Cupa Cupelor. Eram copil atunci si stiu ca m-am bucurat tare. Asa cum ma bucuram la fiecare aur castigat de romani in domeniul sportului.

A fost momentul in care mi-am dat seama ca fiecare individ in parte este un campion in felul lui. Ca pentru ajunge acolo unde iti propui ai nevoie de multa munca, de disciplina, de ambitie si putere de a incerca de sute de ori daca e nevoie, de fair-play, dedicare si  pasiune pentru ceea ce faci.

 

Am continuat apoi drumul spre iesire. Acestea trecea printr-o camera in care erau expuse diverse trofee ale clubului si ecrane cu faze importante din meciuri. Imaginile de pe ecran erau insostite de sunet. De sunetul plin de emotie din momentul in care se intampla actiunea. Printre imagini erau amintite valorile clubului pe un fundal muzical care mi-a facut pielea ca de gaina. Era un mix de sunet si imagine ce mi-a dat fiori si lacrimi in ochi. Citind valorile clubului, auzind fundalul muzical, ascultand strigatele pline de emotie, bucurie si mandrie din diverse meciuri am simtit ca parca ar fi vorba despre mine. M-am simtit parte dintr-un intreg. Acest moment mi-a adus multa speranta si dorinta de a face, de a lua atitudine…acea senzatie care te face sa simti ca poti orice, ca esti puternic, ca daca ai incredere in tine si depui eforturile necesare respectandu-i pe cei din jur vei ajunge la obiectivele propuse si te vei bucura impreuna cu cei de langa tine.

Le las mai jos, sa imi aduc aminte din cand in cand:

RESPECT
Respect for others is one of the basic requirements of democratic life and the capacity to live in society. It affects the individual and has both a social and a collective dimension. Respect is a fundamental part of sport, for sport generates situations of tension that have to be resolved almost instantaneously. There is therefore a need, above rules and standards, for this value to be present in order to guarantee cordial and correct interrelations between people. In sport, respect is needed in similar situations to those where it is demanded in wider society, but the intensity of the moment implies that the presence or absence of respect can be very obvious and can affect the development of the situation or event.

EFFORT
There are many social models that avoid effort and advocate instead luck, opportunism and immediate triumph. However, effort is a value that can take us to unthinkable heights and lead us to achieve targets and objectives that may at other times appear distant or inaccessible. Dedication, rigour, constancy, sacrifice and perseverance all bear fruit, while luck and the search for a quick win are often fleeting and momentary. Note that at school, teachers have for a long time being promoting a culture of effort as the vehicle for academic development and personal achievement, and this helps to construct new social models.
AMBITION
Ambition is the desire to achieve the maximum performance and do things not only well but also as well as is feasibly possible and to improve every day. This value is applicable both to individuals and to groups. It involves use of a web of values as varied as excellence, patience, discipline, order, motivation and responsibility. Indeed, ambition invokes and requires a broad system of values and, in turn, is related with a job being done well, effort and rigour. Regarding targets, ambition is probably the surest way of achieving them, for it is the impulse to grow.
TEAMWORK
Teamwork implies that the subject forms part of a group and that, as a member of the same, becomes an active element that acts on behalf of the whole (sometimes even to the determine of their own individuality). There are undeniable benefits of knowing that you are part of a team and this requires the learning and accentuation of many other values.
HUMILITY
Often when athletes, and people in general, achieve the goals they have set themselves, they start feeling superior in physical, moral, economic and other terms, and this leads them to forget certain values that have in all probability helped them to achieved those very goals: effort, perseverance, self-control, etc. We are all aware of how FC Barcelona has dealt with its victories of recent years, and how it has always shown humility (and also such values as effort, rigour, responsibility and others) to win respect in its field, and among its opponents, and generally everyone. Humility probably consists of knowing how to be clear about one’s values, and to maintain them and defend them even in situations where you are clearly superior and more successful.
