On a cold Saturday morning earlier this month my parents and I set off to our neighboring town. We headed to the high school to attend a sport day between two of the Eastern Cape schools. We were really psyched as we drove down to the rugby fields. For the first time in forever we were going to see one of my nephews in action, playing a sport he loves and enjoys. And of course, I just had to take my camera with me!
The thing I forgot about sport events is the kiosk. Unfortunately I didn’t think to take a picture of it. My mouth was watering at the smells coming from there and I was just too impatient to get my hands on a pancake – the South African kind. And then I forgot that it leaves one with sticky fingers! It was a bit of a mission to get my hands clean enough to handle my camera.
My sister, a friend and myself made our way down to the field just before the match in which my nephew were to play. Boy, was the wind cold down there! My fingers felt frozen, but I had fun nonetheless.

Ten minutes before the whistle blew to end the game, some load cheering filled the air. Not because of something that happened on the field where the second team were playing, mind you. It was the first team walking by, making sure they get noticed. Too bad the crowds don’t cheer like that for every team!
