Whoever said chivalry is dead in our modern world doesn’t know that they’re talking about. We only have to look at footballer Wayne Rooney to see those much-admired qualities of gallantry, courtesy and honour are alive and kicking. The other night he interrupted his drinking session to come to the aid of 29-year-old office worker Laura Simpson.
The poor lass who was also out partying didn’t have a lot on and was probably feeling the cold. She was definitely a little light headed what with all the alcohol sloshing around and so Rooney selflessly offered to give this young lady a lift home, even though it was getting quite late. What an absolute gent.
There are reports that he was seen cuddling her, but that would only have been to stave off hypothermia because it can get very cold up north where he lives. We can only speculate as to what might have transpired had the police not pulled him over at 2 am and arrested him on suspicion of drunk-driving. I like to think that with his children and pregnant wife out of the country on holiday he would have offered Miss Simpson a roof over her head for the night in his empty mansion. He has shown a similar tender and charitable side before when he befriended a rubber catsuit-wearing grandmother.
No matter how hard I try I really I don’t understand why some footballers are branded cheating, immoral scumbags.
