The Moment It Happened

I decided to join the club. The football club I mean. You know, the World-Cup-fever kind. I decided to sit in – for the first time in my life!

I must have been mad. It was screened live at 1Borneo at 2.30 in the morning!

But the atmosphere. Good. Friendly. Family. Loud. Enthusiastic. The mall supplied clappers. That made a lot of noise and added to the increasing emotions.

Initially I supported the Orange. But within the first 10 minutes, and increasingly as time went on, it was obvious that the eventual winners deserved to win. I felt it was a scrappy game. Stoppages. Yellow cards. It was inevitable – someone would be sent off.

And then, the moment it happened! A red card was flashed!

Then came the moment the match was decided!

Almost half of the spectators stood and pranced in joy. What a moment.

It was sunrise by the time we left… but it was worth it!
