Humildes. Discretos. Nunca se quejan. Los calcetines de pesca son la base de nuestra actividad favorita, literalmente, y qué poquito caso les hacemos. ¿La diferencia entre un día glorioso y un día de perros? Nuestros sufridos calcetines de pesca. Y lo que duran... Yo tengo algunos de los 1970, casi. Os propongo una actividad, un acto de justicia: la primera LOA A LOS CALCETINES DE PESCA. Envía una foto de tus calcetines de pesca favoritos y una breve referencia, no más de 500 palabras, de por qué los destacas entre los demás , el ganador recibirá una selección de los mejores quesos del mundo, previo pago de su importe y sin coste adicional alguno. El calcetín de pesca, ese amigo al que siempre pisoteamos y, sin embargo, siempre se pone a nuestros pies, como si fuésemos una dama de antaño. ¡Reivindica su dignidad, envía su foto ahora!
