Saturday morning fever!

Let the humiliation begin!

SoccerAM Office Blog Posted 11th January 2012 view comments

There's a familiar stench of sweat, anxiety and desperation in the office this week and that can mean only one thing... it's Dance Off time!

Yes indeed, a year has passed since we last embarrassed ourselves on such a monumental scale for one thing and one thing only... your entertainment!

Unsurprisingly everyone is desperate to get out of it if they can, but none more so than Bobbie.

After his baptism of fire three years ago when he had to dance in his boxers, you'd think this would be a breeze... not so says Bob.

"I really really don't want to do it. I honestly believe I'll be needed backstage sorting out the tapes. I'm being serious."

It might just be us but has he missed the point of this!?

At least Lisa was a little more creative with her idea of getting out of it:

Competition always brings about a bit of tension, but the general view in the office is that only Rocket, Baby Elvis and Raj are actually looking forward to it. In fact, we reckon they've all got routines sorted out.

Quotes of the week

"If we can get a famous person to replace us we should be allowed to opt out."

Ten points for thinking outside the box, but even the Only Way Is Essex 'stars' would turn down this gig.

Tension

Competition always brings about a bit of tension, but the general view in the office is that only Rocket, Baby Elvis and Raj are actually looking forward to it. In fact, we reckon they've all got routines sorted out.

The rest of us clearly haven't got a clue what we're going to do, which means everyone is a little more on edge than usual... and here's the proof:

Ashley to Bobbie: "Mate what are those boots you're wearing they're rubbish," or words to that affect.

Bobbie in response: "Well look at your own trainers, they don't match what you're wearing."

Worst... banter... ever. Come on boys, no one's coming out of this one looking good...

Humiliated

Meanwhile, the thought of being publicly humiliated once isn't enough for Baby Elvis, oh no, he suggested that there should be a forfeit for whoever finishes last!

Thankfully no one else backed that ridiculous idea, but it did give us an insight into how much he has been practising!

Elsewhere, James has been passed fit to take part after breaking his leg about eight weeks ago, which just proves there's some truth to the saying that misery loves company.

The Gooner will controversially (or not) being wearing a protective boot so that he can cut some serious shapes!

That's it for this week folks... we'll see you all on the dance floor!
