Hartlepool United fans like to dress when they travel to away matches–it’s just their thing. Last year they went to Charlton dressed as a gaggle of Smurfs (is “gaggle” the proper collective noun for Smurfs?). The photos were awesome. This year, they went as penguins. Who else wants to be a Hartlepool fan?
Hartlepool fans might need a bit of whimsy in light of the club’s relegation fight in League One.
If they make a mini documentary of this trip and get Morgan Freeman to narrate it, it will be the most amazing thing ever.
