Up close and personal

One thing I nearly forgot to mention was the camera work during last night's England vs Trinidad & Tobago game. Dwight Yorke got hit in the unmentionable area. We've all been there and can sympathize. So, I'm not sure we needed the close-up shots from the t.v. folks as Yorke reached in to check that everything was still there, intact and in the right place. I'd have been sheepish about doing that in a game of street hockey with no one but my friends around me, but Yorke was able to mentally dismiss an audience of hundreds of millions in order to do what he felt he had to do.
