I'm not a football fan but right now there in an intense rivalry between where I grew up and where I now call home. Actually, I'm seeing more of the intensity of that from where I grew up (but I may be biased now).
Anyway, this is some of the ships tackle from the fo'c'sle (yes that is TWO apostrophe marks in that word, there is a an alternate version with three but I like two). It's an area of the ship I didn't have much to do with, the anchor chains ran through there and occasionally there were ceremonies.
I like the amount of use this piece has. It's so worn down it almost looks like it is made from wood. It has had a full life and it has character in my opinion.
