Babi tyrd i mewn o'r glaw

This scene will be familiar to anyone who watches junior football in Wales. It's not uncommon that we have to stand on the side of a windy, unprotected pitch watching 22 dripping blocks of ice aim frozen legs at a football.
This one was particularly horrible. Cae Glyn v Y Felinheli Under 17's played last week in Caernarfon. Poor old Gwil here is sodden. Match was abandoned with Felin 3-1 up after 50 minutes.
The thing is that it was fine when I left Felin for the game. And that's why I was wearing my shorts. Not because I think I have great legs. Though I have, obviously.

I had a similar unpleasant experience a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, this was at the home of the Welsh champions, TNS. Honestly, they can afford to pay their players £400+ a week, yet adequate seating/shelter? Tut, tut.
