Thunderclap left the stadium, a sky blue and silver bandana around his neck. The colours of the Cloudsdale Cumulus, the home team. He breathed in the cool air, happy to get out of his home and out of Canterlot. He wore nothing to show his noble lineage, and his mane and tail were messy, having to fly through a little bit of turbulence to get there.
As he walked among the crowd, he noticed two ponies almost collide with each other. He slowly walked towards them. "Trying to catch the game?" He asked, "Well, I am afraid you are quite late. Very late. The game just ended." He said, and laughed slightly.
It's not just about the cards. It's about putting a little bit of your heart into something that you care about.
