For any sportsman’s life-span; there are three different kinds of lives to abide by under all normal circumstances; the arrival, service and departure.

To start with; the grand arrival moment is much celebrated across the divide whilst appreciation of service time depends upon delivery; exceptional, good, average or bad.

The departure time is least celebrated for obvious reasons that one party or two could be left depressed and devoid of one’s service.
