Bad Beat Bob undies sell out

Remember Robbie Blake’s goal celebration when he pulled down his shorts to reveal a pair of pants with the slogan Bad Beat Bob? Well, Burnley made the smart move of getting 50 pairs into the club shop – and they have all sold out.

The club has now got the underwear on re-order to meet demand among Clarets fans. A Burnley spokesman said: “We’ve been amazed at the demand in the club shop — you could say we’ve been caught with our pants down.”

The message refers to Blake’s bad luck as a poker player. A bad beat is a hand which is expected to win but still loses.
