Went for my weekly friday night football at Astro-Turf's artificial pitch in Ikoyi. Well, I didn't play this week because I had injured a heel a few weeks ago and am still recuperating, so I spent my time running a commentary with Bolaji Alonge and Kayode Krakue. The commentary part is as important to this weekly ritual as the game. A few months ago, the management of Indomie Noodles playing after our game, decided a 'bribe' of their products would make us say nice things as we yelled from the stands. I've still got the stuff in my fridge.
But among the players this friday were Frank, host of the Nigerian version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and Charles Anosodo, TV Sports Show Host.
Also present were the musician, Rugged Man, who showed he had more skills than rapping, and a number of regular spectators and players.
