This screen-capture shows my involvement, as one of the match photographers, wearing white shirt and shorts. I'm not too happy about how my legs look on tv!Apparently I'm on Cambodian television every weekend. I was informed of this by a friend who religiously watches the live football coverage from the Olympic Stadium produced by the CTN channel every Saturday. I hadn't seen any of it until I was channel-hopping on Sunday evening and saw that CTN were replaying the whole of this weekend's match between the Army and Kirivong. And there I was, in all my glory, wandering around the touchline before the game like a kid left alone in a sweet shop. Actually I was taking a few snaps of the team line-ups for my blog but I stand out like a sore thumb as I'm usually the only white guy involved and I'm the only non-player wearing shorts. I've been on the television a few times since I moved to live in Cambodia, but I wasn't aware of my weekly 'football soap opera' role until recently.
