One of the Sunderland Football Club Lads
September 4, 2001 6:48 AM   Subscribe

Sunderland Football Club is having a contest where the lucky winner will get to be One of the Lads for the entire season. That's right, the lucky winning fan will get to join the first team squad, travel with them to all away games, train and hang out with his Premiership heroes! There's even a Manchester United fan trying to win... Don't you wish there was a similar contest for your favorite [sport] club?

I'm surprised the Chicago Blackhawks haven't tried this. They could use help on the blue line.

How bout the Dallas Cowboys?

You too can be indoctrinated into the Brotherhood of Silence! Pay off the cops! Snort lines of blow off a hooker's back! Deny your involvement in a gangland slaying!

Join the Cowboy Fun Club today!

If my lot (West Bromwich Albion) did this sort of stunt, they'd probably end up sticking the winner in the first team..
