Way to go, Andrew
On Sunday, wishing to avoid the Cowboys' inevitable comeuppance against the Eagles, I suggested a switch of sport, changing channel to ESPN for the NCAA Men's Soccer final between Wake Forest and Ohio State. As we joined the game, Ohio State was protecting a 1-0 lead with 34 minutes to go.
After a whole two minutes of pinpoint passing and a couple of near scoring chances, Mr. Ross complained that no-one ever actually scores in soccer, so I reluctantly switched back to the NFL. I am here to report, then, that the Demon Deacons scored in the 66th and 79th minutes to take a well earned and tense 2-1 victory.
New rule: no-one ever actually scores in soccer while Andrew is watching.
