Most of my friends, family, and acquaintances call me “Eddie”.
Almost no one in real life calls me “Eduardo”, even though I like the name a lot and I wish more people would call me that. My friend Brian is probably the only one that does, and I like that.
Friends that I’ve known since middle school and high school call me by a nickname — “Shaggy”. I always had the longest hair in school so I’m okay with the nickname.
A good amount of people call me “Edward” or say it like “Edward-o”. I hate both but I never say anything about it.
I’ve had neighbors who have called me “Eric” at one point. It was a simple misunderstanding, so I was cool with that, and I always felt too embarrassed to correct them.
My mom and one tia call me “Lalo”, which I really love.

Coach Pop and the San Antonio Spurs invited these young, indigenous kids from Oaxaca to play during half-time earlier today. The kids won an international tournament last year, playing bare-foot. A few months ago, when the Spurs were in Mexico, they played a fun scrimmage with these kids.
I love this photo of Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw and the kids.
