Manchester United: Chris Smalling, a burning hot tub and naked barbecuing
The story is that Manchester United and England’s Chris Smalling’s garden hot tub caught fire. The Sun says Smalling wasn’t at his Bowdon, Altrincham, home at the time. The fire was spotted by a passing police car.
Bit odd, no? Police see smoke coming from a garden and rather than thinking it a bonfire or barbecue, enter the premises to check it out.
The officers were dousing the flames with a garden hose when firefighters arrived to finish the job.
No word from Smalling on the incident, but he did post this photo on Instagram of him watching the Champions’ League and playing poker with a Dyson vacuum cleaner, which seems to have a face:
Might it be that with Mario Balotelli likely to leave Liverpool and, very possibly, English football, Smalling is making his pitch to be the footballer most likely to become the celebrity face of the Fireworks Code?
Addendum 1: Never return to a lit hot tub.
Addendum 2: Avoid naked barbcueing
