I'm like you tonks, ball games don't excite me at all but, when my youngest was young he wanted to go to every football and rugby game that was on, So I compromised and promise to take him to All the home rugby games and on special days, ( birthday, Christmas etc ) I would take him to Latics as well, So anyrode we was at a Christmas Latics match at the Springfield Park ,They were playing Bristol and Wigan scored a goal, All the Wigan fans were jumping up and down and running about full of excitement and, I'm leaning against a wall totally uninterested and wishing it was hometime when this lad approached me and asked " were thee from laiiiiike" ,, I answered, " Bryn Why ?" Then it occured to me he was thinking I was a Bristol fan because I was't jumping about like a demented looney like all the rest of them, When, next thing Mylad came running over who was, jumping about like a looney and shouting " Dad Dad we're winning yippee and waving his Latics scarf in my face and shouting gerr us a pie from'T burger bar, Which convinced the other clown to go away and get back with his goon mates, I had to put up with taking my lad from the age of 5 to about 15 when he was old enough to go by himself, He also played Rugby ( and still does) from the age of 8 to 18, which involved me, taking him training 3 times a week then the match on a sunday morning, My leisure time was took over for that period of time by football and rugby and that was quite enough for me, I'm well please that I don't have to visit a ground ever again,
