Watching the match

It does not matter if it is Gaelic, Hurling, Rugby, Soccer,
or Tiddlywinks
It is you against us and winning
is the greatest feeling in the world!

Jubilation is unbridled
Spontaneous leaps to punch the air accompanied by loud whistles
Cries of “Yes!” fill the air
Spirits soar and loud cheering and excited clapping
screams of the passion
with which supporters respond to
“Their” teams positive performance!
Dejection and disbelief
plummet true supporters
to the depths of despair
as their team falls behind
A son tries in vain to comfort his dad
with words of “It’s not that bad…….there is still the next match”
but one fan can’t take any more…………
he leaves before the match is even over

There is nothing like a match
It can carry emotions
to the highest pitch of elation one instant
then crash them to rock bottom the next
