A dream come true


On Friday night, the young man had a dream come true.  He got to play basketball against the Sheffield Sharks in a charity match for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance - and he scored!! I think he will dine out on that for a while! The evening was fabulous.  There is something hilarious about Joe Public playing extremely fit professional sportsmen!


 The commentary throughout was hilarious and it was the best night out we had all had in ages - and 3 of us were girls who don't even like sport!  We do however each  have a "love interest" on the team.  Mine is my favourite Canadian - the very tall one stood next to the young man at the back!
