Last night we witnessed the birth of a new god. His muscles polished jet. His hair a viperous crown. He strode, he leapt, he grasped stars. Flung open victory’s door. We rose as one and shouted his name. “Nic Naitanui! Nic Naitanui! Nic Naitanui! Save us!” With a flick and a twist he kicked another goal. Our heads thrown back, mouths open, we drank the sky.
