"You know what would be fun? A football match," one might say to a friend. "Let's get tickets and go," a friend might respond. "It'll be a nice day and there would be absolutely no chance of us getting soaked to the bone by some random, malfunctioning sprinkler positioned right at the edge of the pitch and facing the stands, a hypothetical mess only compounded by officials just standing there watching it all happen," the two stupidly assume.

Halftime of the Liverpool-Newcastle match (a match that ended in a 1-1 draw) is yet another cautionary tale of the pitfalls one encounters when one assumes.
