Sympathy vote.

Have pity for the father who got drenched to the skin trying to keep track of the official score-sheet as it dissolved under his pen while his two youngest kids played Rugby in the torrential rain. 

Have pity for his oldest kid who didn't play but got the job of trying to hold the umbrella over her Dad as her siblings coated themselves liberally in mud and grass.

Have no pity for the kids who enjoyed every second of getting muddy and wet even though they lost the match and had boot prints in their faces as they left the pitch.

Oh, but have lots of pity for the mother who has to wash out the mucky, sodden rugby kits when she gets home.
