“The Liverpool goalie might feel bad, but at least he has never been entered for the 110m hurdles schools city championship never having seen a hurdle before. Apparently using your arms to hurdle is frowned upon.
I knocked over every single hurdle. Fell over twice. Then got disqualified from last place.
And then they entered you for the steeplechase.”
