At a soccer match – Jamaican style

Few things are as special to me as soccer. And it is especially good when I get to enjoy it with a few friends. This was a charity event, and also a Jamaican gathering at a park, and any good Jamaican event has some non-negotiables for it to be fun.

But first the grass had to be cut, and there was only one volunteer.

Any good outing will have lots of drinks. Red Stripe, Guinness and Gatorade are favorites.

Jerk Chicken is a must (and dogs are welcome too)

Community and conversation are valued (if you look careful you will catch the special handshakes)

Then of course there is the actual game (pushes, fouls, tackles, and bad words allowed)
