Today I had the honour of speaking to a “seasoned’’ sports mom. All the men in her life (husband included) play sport while she freezes her butt off on the sideline. How does one make this just a little bit more bearable?

I had to ask her.

Is it possible, and if so how do you survive winter on the side of a sports field?

Fear not moms, supportive girlfriends, fiancé’s, wives and even husbands and dads.

I am here to help you! It’s not very complicated and I do like to help.

How can I, a mere newbie to the “supportive” scene help?

Solution: This is what you need …

  • One flask and a box of chai tea – Woolies have a rooibos chai and we all know how good rooibos is for you. Make the tea to your preference.
  • Put your tea in the flask mixed in with a shot of whisky or old brown sherry. Choose one but really if you want to choose both, who am I to judge?
  • “Wala!” Take your flask and proceed to warm the cockles of your heart.

Some variations for filling up your flask:

Leaving your name on the side of the field is not encouraged here. It might be a good idea to perhaps try this out at your next braai or camp out first.

MODERATION is the key to being invited and not banned from the next sports function. And who knows, you may even make some new friends.
