Here is a short clip of Argentina’s DC team meeting with Argentine football players in Sevilla. They sign each other’s jerseys. My absolute favorite part is when Nalby appears. If there were a b-school class called “How to Waltz into a Room and Act Like You Own It,” Nalby would be the best living example:
Notice how DelPo originally has his hands on his hips. Once El Rey arrives, DelPo resorts to awkwardly fussing over his jersey while Nalby hijacks the hand on the hips pose. In this clip DelPo has the bearing of a junior sparring partner, not the highest-ranked leader of his team. He’s mysteriously endearing with these elf-like mannerisms.
Lesson to be learned: When planning to take over a room, it’s best to dress the part–follow El Rey’s lead, by arriving late and wearing a pink oxford shirt under a navy sweater.
