The Daily Drool – Drool Amnesty: Javier Hernandez (Chicharito)

10 Apr

Javier Hernandez (1) Watishista number1barcachick chose Chicharito as her Drool Amnesty with this statement: “I hate manchester united till my dying days (also a gunner supporter) but some things I’d like to do to him and with him besides he is really cute.” Fair enough!

    I’m not attracted to him (too young looking for my taste) but I completely agree that he seems to be in this invisible bubble protecting him from anti-Manchester United feelings. He seems to be a good guy – I’ve heard really nice things about him from people who have randomly met him.

      I saw him at Trafford Centre couple years ago with his parents and sister (who has this gorgeous chubby bubba). He was signing stuff and interacting with some kids. He seems like such a sweetheart.

    i feel very “aw, he’s cute” feelings. but i find myself paying more attention to man u because of him, even though he doesn’t get the playing time he deserves.

    As a United fan, I love him… As a USMNT fan, he makes me angry haha

    I’m totally not getting the amnesty part. But then again, I am a United fan 😉

    Awww Chicha! 🙂 Definitely one of my amnesty drools, I HATE United, but I could never hate him. He seems so sweet, wish I’d meet him one day!

    One of my fave stories about him from another forum: “The nicest ‘celebrity’ I’ve ever served was a young footballer. Strange to associate footballers with manners, I know.

    He walked towards me, and as somebody who’s son is a fan of the team he plays for I knew who he was as soon as he spoke to me.

    At a hundred miles an hour and clearly flustered he said “I was wondering please if you could help me Miss. Do you sell – I’m sorry, I cannot pronounce it in English. Tagleeeteeelea. I’m sorry. That doesn’t sound right. I can write it for you…..oh but my spelling not so good either. Is OK. Thank you anyway.”

    I quickly reassured him I knew what he wanted and I’d show him where it was.

    The whole walk around to the pasta aisle he apologised for not being able to find it himself, for ‘troubling’ me and even for his pronunciation.

    When we got there it was like I’d taken him to a case of buried treasure. his face lit up and he said ‘Oh this is it. Yes! Thank you so very much Miss.’

    Then he pulled out a 5 pound note and said ‘for you’

    I laughed and asked him what it was for and he said ‘A tip. Because you help me so much.’ When i explained that we can’t accept tips and it’s not generally customary to even be offered them, he blushed and said he was confused with tipping because it’s very different where he’s from – but to know that he was very grateful.

    I finally told him I knew who he was and that my son was a fan. He was very pleased, and we talked for a few moments about his team and then we said our goodbyes.

    I told my son when I got home and his face lit up, although he was annoyed at me for not getting an autograph! I didn’t even think to ask!

    The next day though, I was called by name to the customer service desk – and who stood there but my mystery footballer. He must have read the name on my badge. It turned out that he’d brought my son a signed shirt and even brought an unsigned photo with him so that he could dedicate it personally to my son once he’d asked me for his name.

    Truly nice person.

    His name? Most of you probably won’t have heard of him. Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez.”

      this literally warmed my heart. what a sweet kid!

    • Nooria April 10, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

      Awwwww 🙂 I’ve heard many people’s reflections on meeting him, but this is definitely the sweetest thing ever! Totally warmed my heart

    • drea April 10, 2013 at 1:14 pm #

      Awwww, what a sweetheart! And I also don’t quite understand why he’s under drool amnesty. I just assumed he was quite popular with the girls?

      • drea April 10, 2013 at 1:16 pm #

        Oh, I forgot to add that he’s certainly very popular with at least two fanboys I know. They have a thing for guys with clean, boyish looks, hehe.

      • headbandsandheartbreak April 10, 2013 at 1:24 pm #

        He’s under Drool Amnesty because the people who suggested him can’t stand Manchester United. Drool Amnesty is about guilty pleasures for whatever reason – not looks. It can be team affiliation, etc.

        • drea April 10, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

          Ah, ok. For some reason I thought more people would have to put someone up for the amnesties for them to be included. Perhaps number1barcachick’s a closet biteamual Man City fan? *runs and ducks* I’m kidding, barcachick (unless you really are).

          • headbandsandheartbreak April 10, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

            Given how she said she would hate Manchester United until her dying day, I’m guessing not. Several other people are not Manchester fans but like him. A few examples are in the comments above.

            • drea April 10, 2013 at 4:28 pm #

              Oh sorry, I meant she might be both a Gooner and a secret Man City fan to have such a deep hatred of Man Utd. Like the others, I’m not much of a Man Utd fan, but yes, I like him as well.

          • number1barcachick April 10, 2013 at 7:41 pm #

            darling anyteam which plays man u apart from arsenal( which i also suppourt) i love cause i hate man u and besides man city is great 🙂

        • Cosi April 15, 2013 at 5:40 pm #

          lol *raises hand sheepishly* chelsea fan here with a thing for Chicharito. I’d watch him whatever kit he’s wearing….. 😉

    • Allison April 10, 2013 at 8:05 pm #

      That is the sweetest story ever! He is definitely the favorite footballer of my kindergarten class, most of whom are Mexican & watch futbol with their dads.

    • Rose April 10, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

      Awwww that’s just so sweet. And so thoughtful.

  7. number1barcachick April 10, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    and yay he is up i swear i think the man goes and gives to a monestry or has people praying for him everytime he is on the pitch because he is always right place right time and a friend of mine met him last year december she said he was one of the nicest person’s ever 🙂 the only flaw i have is he plays for man u 😦
