We knew things were against us when the mascot we had ordered turned up.
“A yorkie!!!” is that the best you can do!
“Its a cross”
“What with, a budgie?”
Caldy turned up with a Rottweiler as a mascot, who fitted in very well into their second row
At this point I will do something unusual and comment on the match. Occasionally you play a side and they live up to their billing. Caldy are a very good side, with bags of pace, size and skill. We went down by 58 points and it’s to the lad’s credit that it could have been even more but for some heroic tackling. Brooksy and mini Ravers putting their bodies on the line as ever, but to be fair we were thumped by a better side.
The weather was nice, Martin again refused to go to the pictures with me, mystic Ravers came up with some amazing predictions and star of the show, Mat the manager modelled the whole range of goods available from the Sale Sharks club shop (mug,hat,pen,tracksuit bottoms, t-shirt and matching underwear).
Many thanks to the coaching staff once again, Professor Pickles magnificent at exposing the tackle area, Darlo (according to little Ravers) superb with his expanding first aid kit (get a bigger bag Mark) and how telling a dirty nursery rhyme (Mary had a little lamb) is supposed to mend my sons leg....and let’s not forget Brooksy Snr ...no let’s forget Brooksy Snr
Without the 4 of you the kids wouldn’t have a game and we spectators wouldn’t have a social life...so please give up all of you before the bad weather comes.
Happy times around the corner??? Who knows...ask Little Ravers for a prediction (Frankel to lose and West Brom to win...another banker) I depart now to paint my son’s bedroom, I’m putting a set of posts above his bed, he’s been underneath them that often this year it’s like home for him.
But chaps no one can fault your heart, commitment and willingness to fight for the cause and that’s something to be proud of
