Always screw bottle caps on tightly after filing a match report before running at breakneck speed downstairs to the post-game news conference. Opening the bag for the laptop to find your bottle of water everywhere but in the bottle does little to help when your laptop is effectively drowned and you’re expected to update that match report with quotes. Immediately. Drowned laptops with injured keyboards and unconscious mousepads are quite unresponsive to the input of quotes – no matter how hard you pound them in, no matter how interesting those quotes may be.


  1. The laptop survived. And eventually, after picking it up and doing my best to blow the water out (much to the bemusement of my colleagues who must have thought I was in love with it), I was able to send off the quotes, albeit slightly wetter quotes than normal.
    All part of the experience!
