Newcastle have long been known for having the most stupidly fanatical fanbases in world football. Andrew Canavan, 35 year old father of three, has done his best to maintain the reputation of his club's supporters by etching the club crest into his glass eye. Canavan observed that when most people lose an eye, they are "devastated" (hard to argue with) but he saw the "opportunity to do something unique."
The story was a gift for one sub-editor in the Sun who leaped to the phrase "WHY EYE MAN" Sometimes, headlines write themselves and one can observe God at work through the activity of tabloid sub-editors.
