Wolverine Likes His Football

Celebrity Norwich fan and World's sexiest man Hugh Jackman was on Soccer AM last week, when resident idiot 'Tubes' turned up at his press junket for Xmen Wolverine, released this week. After sharing his usual babble, Tubes turned the talk to football.

Jackman declares his love for City.

Oh Hugh, what a wolf, what a man. What a fantastic wolf-man. Hugh's soft spot for the canaries comes from his mother who is apparently from Norwich. However, Hugh needs to work harder on his history. City won the Milk Cup final in 1985 not 84. I forgive you Hugh...Hugh wouldn't!

To help Hugh out, and to cheer me up during such a sucky week for the fine people of Norfolk. Here's a video of that super day at Wembley in 1985.

The memories, I may cry.

Between him and Stephen Fry, that's a mighty celebrity contingent there. I like it.

Unfortunately, that movie was a cinematic abortion.

a: The new one, really?

b: Lets not forget the chick from Hear-say and that guy from Blue-Peter, oh and the lead singer of the Darkness.

WHEN, NOT if, the Canaries stay up this year, I am buying a Norwich jersey and wearing it to my local CSC bar to commemmorate you turning this year into my "real" introduction into English football in the US, and the year that Gunn orchestrates a "miracle" that will be remembered for years...

Thanks to you for your totally insane (while still realistic) fandom...
