Fans & Non-Fans: Laugh at us, we do - 'Jonas!'

Steve Harper was walking along the street next to St. James' Park one day when he heard screams from a nearby building. He looked up to see smoke billowing from a fourth-floor window and a woman leaning out holding a baby.

Help ! Help!' screamed the woman, 'I need someone to catch my baby!'

A crowd of onlookers had gathered, but none was confident about catching a baby dropped from such a great height. then the goalkeeper, stepped forward. 'I'm a professional goalkeeper,' he called to the woman. 'I'm renowned for my safe hands. Drop the baby and I will catch it. For me, it will be just like catching a ball.'

The woman agreed:'Okay, then. When I drop my baby, treat it as if you were catching a ball.'

On a count of three, the woman dropped the baby. Everyone held their breath as the goalkeeper lined himself up to catch it. There was a huge sigh of relief, followed by wild cheering as the goalkeeper caught the baby safely in his arms. Then he bounced it twice on the ground and kicked it 50 yards down the street screaming, 'Jonas! Jonas!'

That is almost as funny as it will be watching you sit mid table in the CC.
