Happy Fathers' Day

this is the second world cup that i'm not watching with my dad. actually, i can't remember watching the 2002 world cup with him either - just bits and pieces of the 1998 one. i suppose it was university at the time, and i watched most of my games in KL with friends.

this is the second world cup he's missed. it hasn't been great so far, and the only bright spot is provided by his favourite player, Diego Armando Maradona.

i remember asking him once who he thought was the best player in the world - there was only one answer from him!

and now i have my own Maradona for my generation, sort of replacing his - Messi, just as good, if not better.

the strangest thing is, i almost wish for the old one again.

Happy Father's Day, dad.
