Another way of stubbornly refusing to be miserable about anything

Yesterday we went to see Fulham play Watford, the bottom team in the league. Fulham had two goals disallowed, missed a hatful of chances including an open goal, and had our goalie stretchered off. It finished 0-0.

On the way out I passed a man who declared:
'I can not feel down on a day when West Ham lose 6-0 at Reading'.
It sounded incredibly profound and true at the time.

There is no particular animosity (as far as I am aware) between Fulham and West Ham United.

This man may well have found a foolproof way a way of fending off any existential regrets, misgivings, worries you may be experiencing. On the day of your unhappiness simply scan any football results to find a team in some league, somewhere who has suffered an incongorously large and unlikely defeat, and laugh.

Today is a bank holiday in Scotland, with a full programme of league games. For those of you feeling the blues today I will try to find a result that will give you a confortable feeling of schadenfreude to dispel them (for 24 hours at least).

If you haven't got time to search through football results simply stretch the statement out a bit:
I cannot feel down in the month/year/solar system in which West Ham lose 6-0 at Reading


Update: I've just checked those Scottish results. Dundee United lost 5-1 at home to Falkirk. I can not feel down this week.

I cannot feel down in the decade-and-a-half in which Tranmere Rovers reached the semi-final of the Coca-Cola cup

I've just heard that West Ham have bought Louis Boa Morte, Fulham's most exciting player. The pleasant effect of Dundee United's 5-1 defeat to Falkirk is starting to wear off.
