Have you ever cried over football?Watch
When England lost to Portugal in the 2006 WC
I know someone who supports Barcelona cried after the comeback by Liverpool last season, and someone who supports Bayern cried after a 5-1 loss to Frankfurt.
Getting promoted yourself or watching your team get promoted is an amazing feeling.
Three hours earlier I’d been coming home on the tube from a day out drinking in London when two very attractive Asian girls started flirting with me.
But I was only interested in the England Ireland game.
It turned out the two girls got out at my stop -not as coincidental as it may seem as our carriage was closest to that exit at the front of the train - and I let them go first and they actually waited for me at a newsagents advertising board in the window.
Damn I thought . They are definitely up for a threesome . All I’ve got to do is say hello, looking for somewhere to live and I’d be away .
But the England Ireland game ! How could I not watch that ? I’d been looking forward to it all day.
And so I walked straight past.
And it was only about forty minutes after the game that the enormity of what I’d done finally caught up with me.
I realised I could have probably watched the game at their place. Or the second half anyway.
