Born into it

Sports network ESPN has been running their "It's not crazy it's sport" campaign for around two years.

Every ad I've seen taps beautifully into what it means to love a team or sport.

This new ad about the red and blue halves of Manchester is an absolute cracker.

Of course being a Liverpool fan since I was in short trousers I can tell you that no wonder what half of Manchester you're from you're still a muppet.

Except of course for Tony Wilson.

Although on second thoughts he was a bit of a muppet too.

What really made me laugh about this ad though was a comment I saw on YouTube - Fake. The United fan has a Manchester accent!
