As part of their maddening 92Live marathon dash around every single league stadium in England today, Sky Sports sent reporter Jamie Weir to Leyton Orient to discuss freekick techniques with the club’s set-piece expert Dean Cox.
After watching Cox send a few meek shots towards an unguarded net, Weir decided to up the ante just before signing off and duly challenged the Orient player to stick one past him.
What followed was the subject of the anecdote Weir is undoubtedly going to be boring everybody in the Sky canteen with for the rest of his broadcasting career…
To be fair, that definitely deserves a doff of the cap.
Fine stop, and with the ricochet pushed to safety for good measure.
