Culture league: Footballer 1, Daily Mail 0

Own goal masterclass:

The Daily Mail: OMG, footballer tweets picture from ROH! Footballers don’t usually go to Philip Glass operas nor do they read Kafka!

Classical Iconoclast: Right, he was actually watching Manon, the ballet. The Trial was at the Linbury.

As Classical Iconoclast points out, who says football players can’t like ballet and opera? Didn’t Pavarotti use to play football in his youth? Then again, it’s the Daily Mail… I think they were actually being supportive – in a patronising way, of course.
