Football - it's in the blood
A Manchester City fan received a life-saving transplant from his brother - but only after he promised to support rivals United instead.
EXTRACTS FROM THE CONTRACT
To ensure all blue blood will be replaced with RED
All outer clothing to be RED - with hints of white
Interior and exterior decoration of home to be changed to RED
All blue coloured materials to be used as rags to clean up dirt
Contract to be signed and witnessed under RED seal
Martin Warburton, 50, made brother Paul sign a contract - under a red seal, naturally - to the effect that he would change allegiance.
Paul, 59, who is fighting leukaemia, had the stem-cell transplant in Belfast - but admits he has mixed feelings after agreeing to the unusual conditions.
"I was really lucky that Martin's cells matched, as some people can have seven or eight siblings and find that none of them matches up," he told the Daily Telegraph.
If your SO ever complains about your watching sports on the weekend, whip this story out, basically under the catagory of " you think I'm bad...". It's not that he wouldn't have given his brother the stem cells, but it was a perfect way to tweak your older brother.
