I made my footie comeback yesterday evening playing in our opening outdoor game of the season in stifling heat. I actually only expected to make a cameo appearance just to test the ankle, and particularly as I don't expect to see out the whole season with Bermuda on the horizon. However I played the bulk of the game with no ill-effects, and I was inches from getting the winner when my shot rebounded off the post near the end. The game finished 1-1, my mate getting an absolute cracker for us.
I rode my bike there and back and then after I downed a beer and showered, we then whizzed down to Grant Park to catch the end of the Chicago Blues Festival
, which after 4 days was closed by the legendary BB King. The place was packed, we couldn't really see, we spent most of the time sneezing as the air was full of pollen and other substances, but I'm glad we made an effort to catch a glimpse of the 82-year old BB King in his first Chicago appearance since 1988.
