Today’s Daily Prompt ( http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/10/daily-prompt-heat/ ) reminded me of a Cricket match I went to earlier this year.
As a professional sportsman (or sportswoman), you have a lot of people bearing down on you, pressuring you to play your best and then some. The crowd is there- all eyes on you.
