I know I've posted this already at The Nightwatchan but I can't get enough of 8 year old Rory Matthews and Chicky, his footballing alpaca.
My friends are worried to the point of being told I've "clearly gone insane" with my excitement for this story. They could be right.
Rory's first game against humans since he made front page news was covered on all the channels' TV news last night.
Chicky watched the game from inside the family car parked behind the goalposts. At half time Rory guzzled water from a huge water bottle. Chicky had milk.
When asked what position Chicky would play if he could, Rory matter of factly stated that due to his strong tackling muscle, Chicky would play the backline, somewhere between centre half back and full back.
Strangely Jet, the border collie, Hamlet, the minature pig and Lu Lu the cockatoo were snubbed by television reporters last night.
Earlier this week Rory's dad told The Daily Telegraph:
"Because he's such a small guy, when he first started playing he was too much of a gentleman and would let everyone else get the ball, so I just threw Chicky out there one day when he was kicking because Chicky has an attitude, and it just started from there.Photos from The Daily Telegraph.
Now Rory is a tackling tiger. He is a fierce tackler on the field now."
