Sometimes words fail even the most resourceful journalists.

Of course, covering the team you support as they reach a play-off final can make retaining one's composure that little bit more difficult.

David Garrido of Sky Sports News faced just such difficulty on Monday night, as he manfully polished off his reporting duties before going to work celebrating with the Sheffield Wednesday players in their dressing room.

Garrido is evidently a proponent of the "no-half-measures" school of dancing, and showed he was just as delighted as the squad and non-playing staff with Wednesday's progress.

The Owls drew 1-1 away to Brighton to win their Championship play-off final 3-1 on aggregate, and will now face either Derby or Hull in the final at Wembley.

Some fans on social media attempted to add some perspective by reminding Wednesday and Garrido that they had won nothing yet, and still had a final to play.


The players may still have to do a job next week at Wembley, but Garrido doesn't (on the pitch, at least); surely we can let a fan have his fun, let the dad-dancing spirit out for a rare run-around?
