My Pen and George Best #1


George, the dazzling dribbler, now departed on a free transfer is playing with the Angels, God’s team, attracting adoring crowds at the pearly stadium. One day I’m going to watch him and get my pen back.
On a beautiful Sunday moons ago, post his playing days, he came to a charity cricket match on the Common along with other sporting giants.
He batted in The Archbishop’s XI making a handy 18 runs but was bowled out confused by a Yorker immediately after a very good lunch. With time to spare he generously agreed to sign autographs so I stepped in.

    Love it Steve! He might have been in the Archbishop’s XI, but I’m not sure Bestie necessarily was heading up aloft. If you really want your pen back, you’d Best dress for discomfort... and start to be a very naughty boy indeed!👹
