Usually I'm pretty quiet in the press box (kind of), but when Beckham lined up his free kick, I just thought out loud, "He's not going to make it."
Greg Daurio harumphed. "He's not? Ok, let the record state Andrea's prediction."
In for a penny, in for a pound, I added, "Yep. No goal here, folks."
"Wow!" The whole pressbox, even the cynical and grizzled among them, reacted when Beckham scored. Then they set about mocking me a little bit.
