Here Is Something Nice

The football team I support, Manchester United, has been posting videos of some of the team members taking a buzz-wire challenge. I enjoyed watching Anthony Martial, whose steady hand and agility are amazing. I mean, he's a very talented striker, known for his speed and agility, so it isn't terribly surprising, but still so much fun to watch! Look how fast he does it!

[Video Description: Anthony Martial, a young Black man, holds a wand in his hand at the end of which is a metal loop, and he slides it around an upright, looping wire track without ever allowing the metal loop and the track to come into contact, which would create a BUZZ!]

Today, the club posted this video of Luke Shaw doing the challenge, and I have watched this fully ONE BIEBILLION TIMES, because I can't get over his adorable face while he does it!

OMGGGGGGGGGG! That grin at the end! I love it so much!!!

*watches again*
