The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.

Harry Redkapp plays the Nintendo Wii with his son Jamie Redknapp, his daughter-in-law Louise Redknapp, and the whole Redknapp family in this clip from an English Wii commercial. Easily the greatest sports video of the week.
Two thoughts: Why isn’t Frank Lampard in this? And: I don’t believe the gameplay here is real, because if it were real, Harry wouldn’t look so genially confused by the technology and the crisply pressed button-down shirts, but would reveal himself to be a Super Smash Bros. player of elemental ruthlessness and power. I mean, obviously.
