Joe is the latest monthly winner in Coral’s Fan of the Year competitionPatriotic Joe Bass had a golden opportunity. The lifelong football supporter and England fan had just seen the last of his children leave home and decided it was time to do some travelling of his own.”I wasn’t ready yet to stay at home in my slippers, feeding the goldfish and watching repeats of Last of the Summer Wine,” says the 62 year old former window cleaner.Still in short trousers when England lifted their one and only World Cup on home soil in 1966, Joe decided to follow the Three Lions to South Africa for the 2010 tournament, and hasn’t missed one since.Has it been rewarding? Well, following England all around the world for the past decade hasn’t resulted in any silverware for the team, but at least Joe can now celebrate being named the latest monthly winner in Coral’s Fan of the Year competition.And who better to have selected Joe than former England centre forward Alan Shearer, who netted 30 goals for his country and was the top scorer in Euro 96?Joe’s accolade means he wins 1,000 in prizes, and as a long standing volunteer at his local club, Newark Town, he’s decided to donate it all to the “Peaceful Warriors”.As a monthly winner, Joe also has a chance to be crowned Coral’s ultimate Football Fan of the Year at the end of the season. If he wins, he’ll net another 10,000 in football prizes, and he would love to take Ann, his wife of 45 years and childhood sweetheart, to Qatar for next year’s World Cup.”It’d be the trip of a lifetime and a thank you for letting me go to all the other tournaments over the years,” he says.Joe has certainly had some adventures in that time, which spans Fabio Capello’s stint in charge to Gareth Southgate’s current tenure.
When I picked up the FirePak for the first time, I was struck by the wedge shape that fit comfortably in my hand. At first, the squished wedge shape looks cumbersome. Pick it up and it feels completely different. Be willing to change your article for the purpose of making it better for everyone else.
