The Boffin is the master at coming up with news articles to amuse me, and he didn’t let me down this morning. Being a New York Jets fan (That’s an American football team for those who are not familiar with sports in the U.S.), he was keeping up with the goings on with the upcoming game with the Miami Dolphins at Wembley this weekend. Apparently, the Jets shipped over 350 rolls of toilet paper along with their other supplies.
The Jets’ rep claimed it was all about keeping the same routine since the teams would be out of their comfort zones in England. The devil is in the details and throwing in some extra bog roll into the shipping container was no big deal. Now I can understand that as far as meals and practice routines, but if a player is thrown off his game because of what he uses to wipe his ass, he picked the wrong occupation.
“I fumbled because the hotel only had Andrex Classic White!”
Tell that to the rugby players, dude.
I think the world now knows how to defeat American athletes in international competition. Just force them to use foreign bog roll.
