Portland, OR - "What a game...WHAT... A... GAME.... GREAT RESULT," said confused Timbers fan Jeremy Quigly as he inserted himself into a sports conversation that he thought had to do with the Timbers 2-1 victory over Toronto FC only to find out that his office mates were discussing the Portland Trailblazers 12 point loss against the Golden State Warriors.
"I was listening to Tara, James and Simon talking about sports and, 'the game yesterday' and I mistakenly inserted myself into the conversation," stated Mr. Quigly to The Nutmeg News on Monday. "It turns out that the Timbers aren't the only game in town and that they were drowning their sorrows in shared commiseration over the Blazers loss to the Warriors on Sunday and NOT the Timbers 2-1 win over TFC."
Reportedly, Mr. Quigly quickly removed himself from the conversation while slowly slinking away to the coffee machine and bathroom to pretend that he didn't interrupt three heartbroken fans with his over exuberant statements.
"That didn't work out like I planned, but how did I know what they were talking about. I just heard, 'that game yesterday' and I jumped into the deep end. I should have known better, but I thought everyone would be talking about the win yesterday."
While Mr. Quigly may have breached office protocol, he remains steadfast in his opinion that soccer should be talked about at work stating, "Someone's got to do it. So I just walked around the cubicles looking for soccer paraphernalia until I found someone that had a Barcelona scarf in their office. We had a nice conversation about the game, so I've got that going for me."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Ms. Craster from Human Resources notices three fans talking about the game yesterday and excitedly interjects about the Portland Thorns recent 1-0 win over the Boston Breakers.
