The Footballer`s Mother

the footballplayer`s mother, originally uploaded by a2006maria1.

Tag search ‘football’. A really classic pic! Larger here.

I used to play football (soccer) in an amateur league when I was a kid and I can still remember my mother dreading the washing rota, especially since we couldn’t afford a washing machine. For those not familiar with this ancient tradition, mothers were (and presumably in some cases still are) expected to take turns washing the team’s kit. I assume that is the subtext to this shot. Either that or her son has very smelly feet.
