There's nothing there. The view? Maybe to see where we have come from, but
not where we are going. It's all downhill to where you lot are. We train our bodies
to run or swim faster, jump higher. But what for? To win? To beat one another and

and then you move house? We have to follow. We box each other senseless.
Why? To get our hand held high at the end of the bleeding carnage and prepare

that he had beaten me out of my boots at one of my best games. "Show me what

The Reserves first match was to be at Home to Ensbury Park, one of our
traditionally tough opponents. I was chosen to play at 'Left Half', and at 14 years
of age I was absolutely ecstatic at the prospect of playing for 'Lytchett men'. But
there were rumblings of war in the air that week and our local Territorials were

"Show me what you were doing with those soldiers when I came in." "All right,"

machine standing in one corner of the room off on a spirited military march, and
inside often minutes, with his assistance, I had all the troops out and to all intents
and purposes bravely swinging by to the martial music of Sousa. "How's that?"
said I, when we had got the whole corps arranged to our satisfaction. "Fine!" he

said Challenger, with massive condescension. “I am not myself prepared to go
farther than to say in general terms that we have almost certainly been in contact
to-night with some form of carnivorous dinosaur. I have already expressed my
