Saying that it was truly devastating to see something so promising crash and burn so quickly, friends and family of Morgan Drake details today how the football fan’s perfectly well made point was made utterly void by an errant comma.
Morgan, an ardent Manchester United fan, reportedly made the point during a conversation on Twitter with a fellow fan of the club, while discussing the legitimacy of Wayne Rooney’s continued inclusion in the side.
Towards the end of the amicable one-on-one, the 29-year-old is said to have delivered a perfectly cogent, well-rounded and indisputable retort, only to see it ended with the poorly-placed punctuation mark, something both his family and the person with which he was speaking admitted made the entire argument redundant.
“It was pretty sad to see, even for me,” admitted Jim Leavy, who was taking part in the discussion with Drake. “He really showed me that I was talking crap. But when I saw where he placed that comma he immediately lost all credibility in my eyes.”
“It just made the entire thing devoid of gravity or weight. Like when a child says something that inexplicably makes sense, you just disregard it,” added another Twitter user.
Speaking to media today, Drake admitted that he’d “made a tit” of himself, before promptly deleting his Twitter account.
