Emotions are running high in the Rubio household these days, and we couldn't be happier about it.

Every positive exclamation Rubio has on Twitter brings us a new chance to learn from his enthusiastic and energetic ways, while also giving us a chance to bone up on our Spanish as well.

Truly a giver on, and off the court.

Many of Rubio's tweets these days revolve around the 2014 FIBA World Championships this coming summer in his home country of Spain, and today is no different.

TRANSLATION: Tomorrow at 19:00, the draw for the WC2014. Begins "our" World Cup.

Unlike many of the tweets we feature in this ongoing segment, this comes from the cuddly horse's mouth.

It was tweeted Sunday and referenced Monday's FIBA World Championships draw, which happened at 7 p.m. Spanish time.

That means it came down the line at 1 p.m. here in our fair state, and in case you're curious for the results, they are here.

What's important to Rubio is that Spain drew the toughest group of them all, a cluster that also features Tony Parker and France and the always tough Brazilian team.

We're guessing Ricky isn't too worried about that though, since his love for Spain is deep and passion for the upcoming FIBAs is one that burns throughout his extremities.

Oh Ricky, all you lack is a jump shot, but your loyal and undyingly upbeat nature makes up for the bricks you throw up on a nightly basis. Rest assured, our love for you is a swish that couldn't be stopped by all the bricks in the world.
