football fans - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Supporting a team, or supporting a spouse, or supporting a child... if you say you're a fan, well, that gets tested most when the chips are down, not when we ride high on the updraft of victory. If you kick and snarl when you feel embarrassed or angry, that's abuse. Support is kind and up lifting, it brings a sense of safety and home, of belonging and sanctuary. And we need this to remain at our best especially in moments of high pressure, or in the stress of challenge. And indeed, a football team and fans are a family, so the abusers, the racists, need to take onboard this re-education process or realise that they aren't fans, they are the worst of opposition.
Football fans piled high, woollen mittens raised to ashen sky, brave enough to take the rain yet worthy of shelter and weather vane.
Football fans in buoyant wave, oblivious to brewing storm, are the poppy fields of yesteryear, their colours bright spun schoolyard dreams, numbered shirts frayed at reality's seams.
Football fans wave in oxygen for hearts true blaze, to ignite what should always live, though the ever giving joy that is the child-self.
Football fans, ball in sky, blue in blue, comet style, net ahead, goal target met, years of practice, nuff said.
