Crawley Town manager and convicted criminal Steve Evans drifted into the shadowy realm of creepy touch as he consoled Matt Tubbs after his side's valiant effort in their 1-0 loss to Manchester United on Saturday. Though the big-spending non-league side failed to harness the manufactured whimsy that is the "magic of the FA Cup," Evans didn't exactly get his tips frosted and make-up done for nothing. Crawley made more than £1 million off the match (thanks to the TV broadcast and their share of Old Trafford gate receipts) and Evans got to £250 bottle of red wine with Alex Ferguson after the match.
"All right, Mr. Ferguson, I'm ready for my close-up."
