Pero, ay, cómo me duele
Ay, cómo me duele
Seems like Selena kind of knew how San Antonio felt on July 11, 2016. For it was that day that we saw Tim Duncan ride off into the sunset. We knew that this day was coming. But, oh, how it hurts me. Reading that letter was the moment that the collective heart of the city broke. Oh how it hurts.
It was this feeling, this bittersweet and profound pain that led attorney Dave Evans to create his 2017 Fiesta Medal. You see, Dave is a neighbor and good friend, the type of guy who welcomes you into his home, quickly offers you a beer (or fine Scotch) and talks up a storm about his Spurs. He is a lifelong Spurs fan, going back to the days of Hemisfair. Needless to say, this native San Antonian was heartbroken with the news.
So, when I told him about my idea for the El Corazon medal, a month after that somber day, Dave decided to take it a different direction. A broken heart painted in those old-school Spurs Fiesta colors, with a “2” on one side and “1” on the other. The top of the heart has “Cómo Me Duele” to express how this moment hurts so much.
In addition to running his private litigation practice, Dave is involved in various bar and community outreach efforts. One of his favorite things to do is help coach the YMCA’s Youth and Government Mock Trial team at Sam Houston High School.
