Billy Sharp scored his second goal on the bounce for Nottingham Forest last night, opening the scoring at Blackpool and celebrating by charging over to the travelling fans at Bloomfield Road where he was duly presented with a congratulatory hotdog.
Possibly against the advice of Forest’s team of dieticians and nutrionists, Sharp took a bite of the fans’ sauce-slathered, mechanically-recovered pork(ish) tube and chucked it back in roughly the direction from whence it came.
Being the good egg-type, Sharp was then immediately beset by guilt, Tweeting an apology after the game and promising to reimburse the supporter with a crisp fiver if he got in touch…
And so, the supporter in question is now faced with a tricky ethical dilemma: Come forward and claim the £5 for a half-inched hotdog or sell his scandalous ‘Billy Sharp Ate My Hotdog’ story to the tabloids for mega bucks.
What’s a po’ boy to do?
