In which John gets really really excited over and over again while attending the FA Cup tie between AFC Wimbledon (the team nerdfighteria sponsors) and Liverpool Football Club (the team John supports).

Thanks to everyone at AFC Wimbledon for their hospitality and support. I can't tell you how many hundreds of people came up to me and told me how much the nerdfighter community's support means to them.

Thanks as always to Rosianna ( for spearheading the sponsorship and planning all of the things.

John: Good morning Hank, it's Tuesday. It's actually Monday.

We just got to London, the game starts in a few hours, I'm incredibly well-rested. I think it speaks to how dramatically my life has changed since I had children that one of the best nights of sleep I've had in years occurred on an airplane.

But I feel great, everybody's excited for the game.

Sarah and Rosianna : Yay!

John: Hank, it's becoming harder and harder to make the case that the Yeti is a yeti.

We're making a quick visit to the Saatchi Gallery because you can't go to London and not look at art.

Alright Hank, it is now 3:30 and therefore getting dark in England, and we're on our way to the game. It doesn't start for 5 hours, but we're on our way!

Here we are Hank, we have arrived for the big game, I've gotten my match day scarves.

So excited!

Alright Hank, I have, uh, now acquired basically the entire AFC Wimbledon club shop.

Clerk: If only he had bought all the stock! (John and clerk laugh).

John: Alright Hank, now we're at the bar. Um, we're going to have a couple pints- I believe I used that term correctly- before the game starts.

These are the actual gloves that Seb Brown used to save those two penalties against Luton Town to send Wimbledon back into the league.

And of course, Hank, we are in the official match day program.

Hank, it's happening! It's real! This is-gaaaah!

We sponsor a team that's playing Liverpool!

I know that you don't share my excitement in this so it seems a little foreign to you, but it's just- it- I don't want to say it's the best day of my life because I have two children, the day of their births was amazing, my wedding day was wonderful- But it's a best day of my life, you know what I mean?

Okay Hank, the game is about to start. Sarah is doing weird things by my face.

Man: Wombles!



Man: Come on you Dons!

John: Okay Hank we're here.

I'm like 45 feet away from Steven Gerrard.

Okay Hank Liverpool scored that was very stressful but then Wimbledon scored so now it's 1-1 - it's just incredibly exciting. I've never been this excited ever. There's like a minute left in the first half.

It's not a foul he's just a larger person!

There's about 5 minutes left. Liverpool is winning thanks to a Steven Gerrard free kick. It's hard to root against that. There's Barry Fuller or as I call him on the Wimbly Womblys Buckminster Fuller. This is incredibly exciting.

There's a Liverpool player taking a corner from in front of the word Nerdfighter. 

Crowd: Boo! Boo! Ya!

Man: Playing for time against a team three divisions below you?!

John: So Hank after an immensely entertaining game in which I found myself in the unusual position of having to root against a Steven Gerrard goal, AFC Wimbledon have done themselves proud and technically lost.

And now Hank it's the next morning, it's a very strange thing to have my favorite player, Steven Gerrard, score two goals to beat AFC Wimbledon, but I have to say that was the absolute time of my life.

Thanks to everyone at Wimbledon for hosting us and showing us such a great time, and thanks to everyone who watched the game and sent in all their pictures of the DFTBAs and Nerdfighterias all over the pitch. Hank, I'll see you on Friday.
