If we’re being completely honest, if we lose twelve cents we’re having a heart attack. In this economy and well, every single day (we’re cheap), every penny counts. That’s why the first episode of this season of Welcome to Wrexham made us want to cry.
We can’t even imagine being rich and even if we were rich, would we want to be? It feels like a lot of pressure. The world looking at you, judging your every move, always having something to say. The world pays attention to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively‘s every move, so can you imagine being as rich and well known as them?
But what the world may say or think doesn’t really seem to phase the two. They go on and do their thing. But hey, we’ve never related to Ryan Reynolds more as the first episode of this season of Welcome to Wrexham. Just not on the same scale.
When the actor and is co-owner, Rob McElhenney are informed that the English Football League team that they own has lost a s**t load of money. And by that we mean $12 million dollars. We would straight up die.
In this scenario, we do have to say though that we would hate to be their executive director, Humphrey Ker, who gave them the news. We will give Ker all the props for the way he spun it though – you know sounding cheery.
It was Wrexham’s Advisor to the Board Shaun Harvey, who had to break the news of how much they’d loss, but even he spun it well with saying, “the value that’s coming from the global appeal we’ve been able to create is going to offset those additional costs that we’ve created.”
TWELVE MILLION DOLLARS WORTH? We agree with Ryan’s reaction, “I’m gonna throw up.”
Because like for real, the same.
