43 years of losing
Well, last weekend, my team, Amazingly Average, won the 2017 Knoxville Metro Soccer League Silver tournament.
There I am, in the middle at the back, victoriously brandishing our champions T-shirt.
The last time I won a soccer championship was 43 years ago, when my high school team (Earlham) won the city cup of Norwich.
The 1974 City Schools team is below, with me, again in the middle, of course,
holding the ball.
Since then I haven't won anything.
Played a lot, every year, but never won a cup. Not a sausage. Bugger all.
43 solid years of losing. Not sure I anticipated that in 1974.
