I remember those old leather footballs.
Weighed a ton when they were wet and damn
near broke your foot when you kicked it.
Got one full in the face on a frozen February
afternoon when i was a kid. Still got the lace
marks on my face now and im pushing 50.....lol
Do you know what - reading all the comments on here and I suddenly had a smell memory. Do you know what I mean or am I the only one?
It was as if I was back in the late 60's and walking into the dressing room to the smell of Deep Heat. Throwing my carrier bag with my boots in onto the bench and when I got them out they were frozen solid in a curled up Lawrence of Arabia way. I had to soak them under the hot water tap to "melt" them before I could put them on.
The smell of that dressing room will, I sincerely hope, never leave me.
