Singing and winning
The crew think Zambia are onto something with their penalty shootout singsong!

Love is supposedly in the air, but you wouldn't know it judging by our office!
Instead, all we've been talking about is the Africa Cup of Nations, Bobbie's ability to reach notes no man should and an iPhone pillow which Trev, in particular, had some strong views on.
"I mean that's just ridiculous isn't it!?" he asked looking for confirmation from the rest of us. "This is exactly why I hate the iPhone - it's all style over substance."
With 80 per cent of the office rocking an iPhone these days it's fair to say there wasn't a lot of support for his argument.
Ashley is the latest to go Apple and he wasn't having any of it. To prove Trev was wrong he decided to show him an app he'd downloaded which looks like you're drinking a beer when you tilt your phone... on second thoughts maybe Trev was spot on all along!
Talking of things spot on, we couldn't have been more impressed with the standard of penalties in the African Cup of Nations final.
Zambia's 8-7 shootout win over the Ivory Coast was even more impressive considering there was a divot the size of a meteor crater where the penalty spot should've been.
Yet the Zambia players in particular couldn't have looked any cooler and we reckon it was all down to their shootout singsong.
We're not exactly sure how it helped, but it's got to have got rid of some of that nervous energy, which usually causes players to miss. Let's hope Wayne Rooney and co were taking note!
Thankfully Bobbie wasn't as he chose to watch th BAFTAs instead. We say thankfully because we don't need to give him any encouragement to sing in the office.
We wouldn't mind if he had the dulcet tones of a Barry White, but when we tell you he can reach notes so high that only animals can hear him, you get the picture!
"I remember watching Adam Sandler singing Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You' in a film once and I thought 'I wonder if I can hit those notes' and I could! That day changed my life... for the better."
Unfortunately for Bob and Whitney Houston fans, the singer died at the weekend and if you believe the internet, Aaron Ramsey has a lot to answer for!
The Arsenal midfielder's last four goals have been immediately followed by the high profile deaths of Osama bin Laden, Steve Jobs, Muammar Gaddafi and most recently Miss Houston.
Now, we're not ridiculous enough to suggest there's some connection there, but we have to admit it's a little strange!
Finally, proving once again that Soccer AM can make dreams come true, Sway tweeted us to tell us he'd love to work with Neil Danns!
The Leicester midfielder was on the orange sofas on Saturday and revealed how much he wanted to work with the rapper - and hey presto we made it happen!
Who needs Simon Cowell and X Factor!?
See you on Saturday!
