Super Mario!

Why always him!?

SoccerAM Office Blog Posted 26th October 2011 view comments

The Premier League would be a far duller place without Mario Balotelli... fact!

We're sure there are a few Man Utd fans that would disagree with that, but that's the general consensus in the office.

Opinion was split on him for a while, but no longer! That said we're not sure he's the best person to be fronting a fire safety campaign ahead of bonfire night!

Back to Saturday and what better way to start the weekend than with some NFL cheerleaders! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers girls put a smile on all our faces, and judging by twitter most of yours too. But for some members of the crew it was all downhill from there...

Bobbie spent much of Friday reciting his best man's speech, unfortunately that didn't help him when it came to the actual wedding and even his flip charts couldn't save him!

Rocket has also been hurting after he had to sit and watch his beloved team get ripped apart... The problem is we didn't have a clue which one of his teams he was talking about!

Quotes of the week

"It was like dying a slow death up there," he told us sorrowfully.

"The young people got my jokes, but the old ones didn't have a clue. It was horrible."

In fairness to the oldies Bob... we don't get all your jokes either!

Hurting

Rocket has also been hurting after he had to sit and watch his beloved team get ripped apart.

"Talk about a painful 90 minutes," he began. "I can't remember ever having to sit through a match like that before."

The problem is we didn't have a clue which one of his teams he was talking about!

"Why, what was the Reading result?" asked Dave.

"No he must be talking about Uwe Rosler and Brentford" countered Chris.

It turns out he was talking about Man Utd shipping six against City. Still, at least Aldershot won, eh Rock?

We all have bad weekends, unfortunately Rocket's has continued into this week after his idea to mock himself and Dave up jumping out of a plane for Ant and Dec backfired... and in a big way!

"Why mock it up when you can do it for real!" Baby Elvis suggested.

Now that's an idea we can all get behind!

Cheese!

Elsewhere, The Sun's revelation that cheese is the most shoplifted item has got us all a bit worried!

We know we've been giving cheese the big sell this season with our 'When The Cheese Comes Out Everybody's Happy', but that's ridiculous! We're sure it has nothing to do with us...
