A few nice funny football images I found:
You’re Ruining It!

It should be noted that Cyrus injured his neck playing flag football, but this was just too funny not to do it.

Kaye, Adam’s mum, and my step-mum, had this to say about him at the memorial:
Moments after Adam died, a close friend of his commented that Adam reminded him of a comet… bright, unforgettable, and with us for only a short time.
Mark Twain was born and died in years that Halleys comet was seen.
I feel it is apt to quote him here:
"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me. but I think she enjoyed it".
Adam was born with an Apetite for life. His curiosity and sense of adventure, no holds barred, and ‘nevermind the consequences’ approach remained remarkably consistent.
And he was always very busy.
He never stopped doing. He tried anything and everything once, and some things twice. He did football, rugby, tai boxing, body building, rowing, running, university, work.
For a brief time, he even tried saving money. Just enough to get where he wanted to go, though.
And Adam wanted to see and experience the world. Have the big experiences and big challenges to suit his larger than life attitude. And he was funny, with a wicked sense of humor and devastating wit, often making himself the butt of his own jokes.
He never stopped bouncing through his day, and everyone else’s – collecting friends and experiences.
He was loyal, passionate, and compassionate with friends and family.
In London he found his spot in the world, a job he loved and flourished in, and friends that were extraordinary. Truly he found himself to be the person he had though he could be. And he was so happy.
When Adam knew he had a very limited time left, he accepted this larger than life event with an equanimity which was awesome. He refused to have any bleak conversations, he never went down the path of self-pity, and he was not afraid. Time and again he demonstrated enormous integrity, courage and humour. He was absolutely inspirational.
I would like to finish with another quote from Mark Twain: "Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry".
