Field of dreams

You can't help but be touched by yesterday's story about soccer ace Teko Modise pouring his heart out about his desire to be reunited with his long-lost father.

You can't help but be touched by yesterday's story about soccer ace Teko Modise pouring his heart out about his desire to be reunited with his long-lost father.

What a moving tale.

A refreshing departure from the usual sleaze and debauchery associated with soccer fame and fortune.

Modise's story is different in that we've become accustomed to reading about errant fathers who lay claim to their successful offspring decades after they had abandoned them to an uncertain future.

Thankfully, he turned into a fine young man even though he did not have a father to guide him through life's treacherous journey.

May his dream for a reunion have a happy ending.
