Craig Delew, a fan of English soccer club Leyton Orient, found himself dusting off the seats at Brisbane Road recently after he lost a bet to club executive Matt Porter. Delew tweeted to Porter how he wanted the team to sign goalie Eldin Jakupovic, his favorite player. If the Os did, he promised he would “clean the dust off every seat in the East Stand.”
Lo and behold, during the January transfer window the League One title contenders brought Jakupovic back. Delew lived up to his part of the bargain cleaning off the seats which he said was, to borrow an oft-used term by Karl Pilkington, “knackering.”
Fortunately, there are only 9,200 seats at a Brisbane Road and those seats appeared to be nacho cheese residue-free.
