my daughter the sports hero

My daughter, bless her, is proving to be most unlike her dear old pa in someways, particularly her appreciation of football. Molly is the only girl out of 20 kids in an after school football group. Each week a small trophy is awarded to the best player or the person who tried hardest and this week, the fourth week, she brought it home with her. She was so excited with a grin so big I thought she'd swallow her ears. The trophy has pride of place on our mantelpiece now I've managed topry it from her fingers.

Cool. Mine started last week, her first year of any kind of organized sports. She is definately a ball hog.

This is when sport is fun, it's when people get older and money comes into and performance enhancing drugs it gets naff !! I bet the only thing that enhanced your daughters performance was a glass of Orange Squash. Congratulations to her, not only for winning but for being a girl who likes to play football. Good stuff !! :)
