The fleeting thoughts of the moment

I just got back from the football ground - it's been ages since I sat there and actually watched people play. (I was there for a couple of minutes just the day before, before AG dragged me away to watch a play, so that doesn't count). And I realized that I'd been missing the ground quite a bit. The weather being pleasant, I could happily roam about on my cycle before coming back to watch a game with nearly a full field. I don't know how many people were actually playing, but the turnout was definitely quite high, more so given the possibility of a sudden downpour at any moment...

I'd been happy that I could recognize the players even when they were in other clothes. But maybe I'd become complacent a bit too soon - I could identify the guy who came late and went on to be the GK for a while, but I couldn't place him for sure. All I could come up with was that he's one of the regulars. Maroon 17? No, I don't think so. The Navy Blue? Could be.

(There's someone out there who always makes me think, 'Stick figure running'!)

Speaking of the GK, I was almost envious of his skills (and that of some of the others!)...
