Self K'appreciation

So, tonight was my 500th game and, having lived in God's County for 19 years now, it does mean a lot to me.

It was fun, because it was just normal. I drank with guys I've known for 25 years. We talked about friends who couldn't make it down tonight but were equally important to our shared journey. I saw and said hello to people tonight that I've never known the names of, but just know them because they're K's. I conversed and joked with new friends on the terrace who I feel like I've known forever. I sang songs with the sons of people who used to teach me songs on the terraces. I talked about my football trips with folk who used to define what a football trip was. I chatted like equal acquaintances with two directors who helped me out tonight. Kim Harris was manager. K's legends were on the terraces. The burgers were lovely. Ex-K's fans / strong sympathisers were in abundance - I hope they'll all be back one day. Programmes ran out as per tradition. The Guinness was awful. I got jealous of old and new mates talking about away games I know I'm not going to make. The cider was palatable. Tolfs. I laughed at the new beermats. I wished more of my old pals were around, knowing full well my own service has been lacking. We lost.

500, not out.

This Is Kingstonian.

Many congrats. Huge achievement. You should get a testimonial, or something!

What have you set yourself as your next landmark? And how long will it take you to reach it, do you think?

I've no idea how many games I've attended. I never kept a count in the earliest days (20+ years ago), and I certainly couldn't remember them all now. For comparison, I've made perhaps 8 - 10 games per season for the last four years, from Wales.
