We’re devastated that the season is slipping away like so much cheap wine, but yet, our ovaries are heading into high-geared excitement over the many footy kids soon to be prancing around the pitch in shoes worth more than our mortgages.
Former Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper, Maarten Stekelenburg, bid a fond farewell to the club’s fans during half-time at Ajax’s match against VVV Venlo last weekend and was joined by that mini-me son of his, Sem. Why he did this a year after he left the club to tend goal for AS Roma is beyond us, but semantics, schmemantics. An adorable bubba was involved in Maarten’s goodbye lap, therefore this is news.
