My 5 seconds of fame at the Carling Cup Final!

    Went to Cardiff on Sunday for the final (I'm an Arsenal fan), and while standing and clapping John Terry as he left the field, me and a mate were picked up on camera. Shortly afterwards, my phone was blowing up with texts from friends and family who'd seen me!

    The highlights can be seen on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_b2iWOZyNWk) but here's a screengrab below. I'm the one on the right, wearing the dark blue striped sleeves and O2 top with my hands together clapping (my mate is to my left with the black baseball cap):


    Got into work on Monday and it was like being a celebrity - so many people saw me! :)

    Shame about the result but it was an absolutely fantastic day.

    Yeah, quite a good view, although we had a better view of the fight three rows behind us! Some Chelski fans had got into the Gooner end, and while not dressed in colours, they attracted some flak when they equalised. When Drogba got the winner, they went beserk, and of course some Arsenal fans took offence to this and the Blues fans were asked to leave - but not before they took their anger out on one of the stewards! I always thought stewards were just kids paid to watch the fans, but this particular steward was huge and really took lumps out of this Chelsea fan! :)
