Commiserating over my loss of 50p on virtual racing I was happy for the young man who cheered on his 12/1 winner.
He said he been out on the booze and had put £20 on Lewis McGugan to score the only goal in a 1-0 win against Newcastle.
Now only a person that had too much beverage would have thrown good money away.
He did acknowledge he would not have done it had he not had a skinful.
He then said he would more than likely take his wife and nine-week-old child to Meadowhall and have a spoiler day. I wish him all the best.
Armed with this knowledge prompts me to advise all Wednesdayites to go on the town if it produces results like that.
