Cox to handle balls in the box for Blues
You could be forgiven for not recognising the man who sat at today’s Blue Ball press conference donning the number one shirt. Whilst he could easily pass as the team’s water boy, he is as far away from Dire Straits as you could get.
Jim Cox is the super star goal keeper keyboardist that everyone has has heard but never heard of. He has played in teams featuring the world’s best. The once mighty striker Ozzy Osbourne, the dynamic wingers Mark Knopfler and BB King and the luckiest footballer ever, Ringo Starr, have all had this great man mop up the loose balls and parry shots over the crossbar.
“We could have gone and got a household name,” said the Blue Ball President, “but we preferred to get a man who we knew would get the job done day in and day out.”
Even this month’s recruiter, Aymeric Ardimanni, had to Google the ivory twinkler’s name – but insists that this Cox is the biggest and most active pianist in the business.
The Blue Balls will announce their next signing in October 2015.
