FOWC with Fandango — Underdog

You can guarantee that if there’s a contest or football match, Hubby and I will both root for the underdog.
I think it stems from both of us being such for different reasons, and we always like it when they get the better of the favourites.
Classic of course (to me) is the FA Cup Final on May 14th 1988 between Wimbledon and Liverpool.
‘The Wombles’ as they were known won 1 -0 in the biggest shock in football history.
I was playing for the ladies darts team, and the club jukebox was forever playing The Wombling Song, much to the annoyance and frustrating reminder to all footie fans, Liverpool followers or not .
Turned out that it didn’t matter what song you selected on the box, The Wombles were it!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
