FOOTBALLERS THINK I’M MAD!

Rich 1st September 2015

Wigan forward Hugo Rodallega once asked if I’m mad.

I was asking him some of our legendary MOTD Bonkers Questions and his query came after he’d finally stopped laughing at one of my mad questions!

FOOTBALLERS THINK I’M MAD!

I met new Man. City striker Edin Dzeko recently and he also wondered, like Rodallega, if I’m mad. I was telling Edin that we sometimes wear big red noses on our faces in Britain, and at first he thought I was winding him up!

The idea of putting a big rubbery nose on your face would sound a bit crazy to someone who hasn’t heard of it before, wouldn’t it? It’d be like you or me going to Bosnia and being told to wear massive purple ears! You’d be thinking ‘errr… what?’

But Edin soon realised that it wasn’t a joke, we really do have a Red Nose Day and that it’s a great way of raising money for charity. He was a really nice guy to chat with and even took part in our Red Nose keepy-uppy challenge with Bolton midfielder Stuart Holden! (Try it! It’s hard to keep a Red Nose in the air for long!)

FOOTBALLERS THINK I’M MAD!

So I say ramp up the madness this week to help raise money for a good cause! Or as the Red Nose Day logo says: Do Something Funny for Money!

THIS WEEK'S MATCH OF THE DAY IS A RED NOSE DAY SPECIAL - GET YOURS NOW!
