Like other posters, I enjoyed the echoes of Peter Morris. A very well-written, emotive piece, Dave.

I was texting with my younger daughter during the came. She’s a recent convert, and is overflowing with zest. When the game ended she texted me “I’ve just done my victory dance”. I’ve witnessed her victory dance, and it’s overflowing with energy that only young people can do.

The point of this is she was elated by a draw and, very rarely for me, so I was tool It was a wonderful feeling.
