I have a job where I am lucky enough to be able to work from home from time to time. Today is one such occasion, which enabled me to watch the draw for the next round of the Champions Leage.
As a seasoned football fan who loves the excitement that only a good draw can bring (is there a better day than FA Cup Third Round draw day?), I was quite looking forward to it. Silly boy.
All I can say is if you are ever in the same position do yourself a favour – just find out via the net later on like everybody else does. By the time the draw actually took place I could hardly remember what it was for. It was painful.
If the draw itself wasn’t exciting enough (and in amongst the tedium there are some great games methinks) thank goodness for Sky Sports and their reporters just dying to put words in club officials mouths:
Reporter: “So, random chap from Celtic, it’s bring it on for Barcelona then eh?”
Celtic chap: “erm, yes we look forward to playing them”.
Reporter: “You heard it folks, Celtic say bring it on to Barca – should be a cracker”.
Genius. Who needs Trevor Brooking?
