Wat Tham Seua (Tiger Cave Temple). Another motor bike trip took us to a few spots around the Krabi province, the most rewarding being this Buddhist temple sitting 260 meters atop the limestone formations. 1,272 stairs take you straight up the side of the cliff. Not easy, but the views and tranquility are well worth it!
“I’m trying not to dare to believe. Don’t get me wrong, winning the title flashes in and out of my mind from time to time…”
Liverpool FC 3-2 Manchester City
In April 1989, 96 people went to watch a football match and never came home. They went there to see their beloved Liverpool — and, today, a quarter of a century later, before one of the club’s biggest games ever, those fans were honored beautifully.
Afterward, led by their captain, Steven Gerrard — the paragon of loyalty in a sporting era that often rewards money-grabbing and title hunger far more than fidelity to a cause — they won the game, 3-2, and set themselves up for their first league title since 1990.
When the game finished, Gerrard had tears in his eyes — and while some of those were no doubt down to a mixture of relief, exhaustion, and the thrill of victory — a lot of them were down to something more.
Gerrard’s cousin, Jon-Paul Gilhooley, died at the stadium in 1989 when he was only 10. While most of the time we can freely admit that sports are just sports — and the narratives we spin are irrationally inflated to feed our obsession with a game — sometimes they are something way more important than that.
Sometimes, sports say a lot about life and help us heal wounds that we once thought never could even begin to heal — and today was one of those times. #JFT96 [Posted by Zack]

Watch Phil right before Flanno pulls him away to celebrate.
It looks as if he’s looking toward the sideline and swatting the Hillsborough patch on the shirt.
Love this kid to death. He’s going to be with us a long time.
