Bad Boys and Good Times

I'm listening to Sheffield Wednesday play at Bournemouth this morning. Whenever Bournemouth scores it knocks the audio broadcast offline while the crowd is roaring. (Announcer: "Everytime Bournemouth scores and fans stand up, it knocks us off. Our set up is not ideal.")

It just happened again, but not for a goal: "This time a substitution made the fans stand up and took us off the air. ... The substitution was made, we just could not bring it to you. Ryan Fraser replaces Matt Ritchie."

If your Wednesday could silence the crowd by scoring a bunch of times, that would be fine.

Yes, Ipswich are in a playoff chase with Bournemouth.

Your wish was granted in the final 10 minutes.

Wednesday have had a man sent off and scored again. Now 2-3... Go Owls!

And again! 2-4!

And Reading lost. And Blackburn drew. Now we just need Brighton to slip up. Oh. And win our game.

Milan Lucic gave Danny Dekeyer a solid whack between the legs tonight. I imagine his wallet will be a bit lighter after the NHL takes a look at it. Thankfully the Wings got the last laugh.
