The words of Gary Lineker have treated him so well for so long on BBC's Match of the Day.
On Wednesday night, it was 140 characters that got him and his ears in hypothetical trouble:
If this finishes 1-0 I'll get my ears pinned back.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 23, 2014
Of course, the match did end 1-0. Thankfully, Lineker took the whole thing in stride...with the help of some of his friends, colleagues and family.
In the post match interviews can someone ask Gareth Bale for the number of his ear surgeon?— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 23, 2014
@GaryLineker Howard Webb should at least pay for the operation.— Andrew Cotter (@MrAndrewCotter) April 23, 2014
And that's why I'm not a betting man. Could be worse...I could be my old man.— George Lineker (@GeorgeLineker) April 23, 2014
My big mouth has done for my big ears!— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 23, 2014
