Blackpool 0 - Charlton Athletic 2.
For the first time in a few seasons, Charlton played a game without me either a) being present or b) following the action via commentary on radio or the CAFC player service.
Today, I didn't head up to the North West coast to enjoy the unexpected away victory.
I was at the Lakeside shopping centre over in Essex!
Until I got a text message from Crispy congratulating himself on his betting prowess, (Cort to score), I had no knowledge of events at the Seaside.
A later message announcing Chris Solly had belted one in from outside the penalty area put a little bounce in my step.
Knowing how these things can work out, it was the Final Scores on the radio while exiting the car park that made me finally relax and do that ridiculous fist pump we all do.
I had been to our two previous games at Bloomfield Road and left there cold, wet and disappointed on both occasions.
It didn't seem much of a hardship to stay at home instead of doing a long schlep North, for what seemed like a pretty obvious home win.
Well done to Chris Powell, the players and back up squad for winning a game not many people would have predicted..
I received a few messages this evening with a common theme, that being I need to stay away from Charlton games more often!
I don't really fancy that role very much.
