The child stared at the man who had just written on his T-shirt. Then stared back at his T-shirt. Then started to cry. Good crying. The kind of crying that comes from meeting the man who's looked down from your bedroom wall for as long as you can remember.
For millions, Ken Block is that man. And last week in Barcelona, bedroom walls were coming to life right around Montjuic Park.
World Rally Championship regulars Sebastien Ogier and Thierry Neuville were a novelty; local hero Dani Sordo a must for most, but when Block came out of the building, bound for the autograph session, Barca went berserk. The intensity was intimidating to watch, to be in the middle of it must have been mental.
