The last couple of photos haven’t presented their participants at their most photogenic, so today’s photo evens the balance by having a wee laugh at a member of the Footy Sevens management team . . .
Here we see him swooping in with a crunching tackle to save a village from the villainous attack of a giant mole-man. What a hero! (One for the Arrested Development Fans: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NG7fAhvUcc).
It started life as perfectly innocent photo of him playing, but from the angle the photo was taken at, it looked like an over the ball challenge. especially when it was photoshopped, taken out of context and shoved over other backgrounds. A few e-mails back and forth and he had morphed into a mighty maroon, mole-man killing machine. It certainly made us laugh, but it is probably a bit of a “you had to be there”. Sorry if it is, normal service will resume with tomorrow’s calendar picture.
Apologies too if this was a bit late in getting online, technical issues at home meant no internet access (Thank you Rogers. I really enjoy throwing my cash at you for your generally poor to average service and products. And if you do really need so much of my money, any chance you could spend it on making your products better instead of making more of those crappy “Mr Smooth and Mr Gormless have download speed related mishap” ads? Ta very much.)
Remember if it’s you that we’ve tacked the Santa hat* onto, drop us a tweet @OttawaFooty7s and we’ll send you an Ottawa Footy Sevens shirt.

*Or we may shove on a big snowman’s top hat. Who knows? It depends upon how whimsical we’re feeling at the time . . .
