For The Last Time

This afternoon Råsunda stadium, the home of our beloved AIK, was opened up for fans to take apart. AIK will be playing in the new Friends Arena next season and Råsunda will be demolished soon so the football fans were invited to take whatever they could carry. The Swede, who had been gearing up for this event for weeks and came bearing a backpack full of tools, walked out with twelve stadium seats and a chunk of sod from the field that we'll plant at the cabin, where we know it will stay in the family for generations to come. Then, as it grew dark and was time to leave, he took a moment to shed a tear, packed the seats that he and his friend Emil sat in when AIK won the derby the fall of 2009 into the Volvo, and said good-bye.
