A rival for Kevin Keegan as the happiest man in Charleroi last
Saturday night was Bite Communications account manager Ruben
Football-mad Lawrence was the lucky winner of the Bite office draw to
win two tickets to England’s Euro 2000 game against Germany. But one
man’s celebrations are another’s commiserations. The tickets were
originally won by Bite account director Nick Morris in an on-line
competition by SportsMAD.com.
Unfortunately for Morris his wife, who gave birth to a baby boy 10 weeks
ago, had to go into hospital - so a ’gutted’ Morris scrapped his plans
to travel to the match and donated his tickets to an office draw. The
winner was Lawrence and the icing on the cake was the one-nil victory to
England.Luckily he didn’t get too carried away after the result about
England’s chances against Romania.
But, Lawrence says optimistically: ’I’m keeping my fingers crossed for
the World Cup qualifier against Germany in October.
