I’m fully aware that maybe only five people in the United States will have any idea what the heck this is about, let alone find it funny, but I don’t really care about the other 300 million or so of us who will inevitably be confused by it.
Here’s a gallery of the newly-discovered Old Trafford Space-Time Continuum, courtesy of The Guardian, which was inspired by the September 20 Manchester Derby and its controversial ending. Even though I’m personally glad it turned out the way it did, I still loved the Alex Ferguson Watch bit, as well as the Dali painting. Unfortunately, most American sports fans generally just don’t seem to have this kind of sense of humor.
Old Trafford’s unique space-time continuum anomaly, I’m glad to report, still seems to be working, since Manchester United managed to snag another point today in injury time at Sunderland’s expense, although this didn’t prevent Ferguson from blasting today’s referee for not adding more time at the end.
