"Mama"

Hello world !
Just saw a dream this morning of the sporting days I had as a youngster
and this beautiful Goal came to my mind.
It was in 1993 I think. It was the local Football league
and we were playing our archrivals TFA trailing
1-0 at half time and time was ticking by in the second half
almost drawing to a close. And then our right winger crossed
the ball into the center and the ball ballooned over the defenders
to be head high over our Right winger Imtiyaz fondly called "Mama"
who was also the captain of our team Eleven Star.
What Mama did was unimaginable - he had the back against the wall.
In a moment he launched into a Bicycle kick - one only seen on TV
emulated by many but not perfected by any and he connected the
ball perfectly with his toe to get the ball into the net and GOAL.
Whoa ! The greatest goal I have seen with my own eyes certainly.
I can never forget narrating this goal to anybody interested in football
and its itched in my mind forever. What a goal !
The one closest I have seen on TV is when Marco Van Basten scored something similar
in the European Cup for Holland in his hey days.
Sporting memories are the best memories of my life.
That reminds me the Ashes series gets underway from today
and my prediction is that the Aussies are going to blow away
the Poms in the 1st Test. Lets see.
Week-end is fast approaching !
Cheers !!!
