A lucky break?

Celebrating good times and time off!

SoccerAM Office Blog Posted 16th November 2011 view comments

It's not quite the season to be jolly but there's been plenty of celebrating going on in the office this week.

Bobbie and Dave had their birthdays at the weekend and judging by the way one of them looked on Tuesday morning (ahem... Bobbie) the partying went on well into Monday night!

And our suspicions were confirmed when he nominated himself for an extra day's work just before Christmas. Either someone's eyeing a raise or all that good will from the weekend is still flowing!

Dave on the other hand was looking much fresher-faced despite reaching the grand old age of 30! To mark the occasion he threw a fancy dress party on Saturday. The theme; D or P. The reason; it was a joint party with one of his mates, whose name presumably starts with a P.

With such a broad choice of outfits Trev went for the most obvious thing he could think of... Death!

I got in a taxi the other day and the driver told me he was Tony Yeboah's brother in-law! He reckons Yeboah would be well up for coming on the show.

Baby Elvis
Quotes of the week

Meanwhile, Max decided to put in minimal effort and popped along to B&Q on his way to the party to pick up a large pipe, which he then stuffed down his jumper!

If Tubes hadn't been holidaying in Rome they would have made the perfect double act... one for next time maybe.

Lucky

In other news James has officially been signed off from work for the next five weeks after having his ankle reset last week. We know what you're thinking... talk about a lucky break!

In all seriousness though it must be horrible sitting around watching TV and going through all your Family Guy box sets, right?

Elsewhere Manchester United fan Rocket found himself taking a tour of the Etihad Stadium at the weekend with his girlfriend who is a City supporter. The conflict in interest was obvious to us, but seemed to go over Rocket's head - like most things - until Baby Elvis highlighted the issue.

"That must've been pretty tough for you as a United fan!?"

"Eh? Oh right, yeah it was horrid."

Encounter

And finally, if you spot Tony Yeboah on the orange sofas any time soon it will be down to a chance encounter involving Baby Elvis.

"I got in a taxi the other day and the driver told me he was Tony Yeboah's brother in-law! He reckons Yeboah would be well up for coming on the show."

Brilliant we thought. Let's get him on.

"The only problem is he lives in Ghana right now, so we'd probably have to fly him over."

Ah... let's find out when he's visiting next instead!

See you on Saturday!
