Can’t really watch soccer for long without thinking of Dillon. Watching one of the World Cut games, maybe US v Ghana, one of the announcers asked the other, what the players would be saying as they stood in a circle, their arms intertwined. after half-time before returning to the game. The other announcer responded that they would be saying something to get them all to pull together as a team. Immediately the image: Dillon, the only soccer player on our club team who could say the most heartfelt, even corniest thing that the other players would not only accept without any derisive remarks, but would also be the exact thing that would actually work. The world doesn’t make a lot of sense when a force so positive, so effective is gone. Love you Harriet, Taylor and Steve and, of course, Dillon. Bella, former manager of the SM Strikers.
