Gordon in the morning: You'd be happier doing sports, wouldn't you, pet?

By snaffling a photo of Liam Gallagher from Twitter, Gordon found an excuse to file a report on the FA Cup semi final:

It was a triumphant day for the Blues, despite a row erupting on the pitch between their tetchy star MARIO BALOTELLI and United's RIO FERDINAND and ANDERSON.
Psst, Gordon... you're meant to be the showbiz guy?
That was probably the icing on the cake for Liam.
Still, I'm glad Gordon mentioned rivals having a pop at each other, as there's a wonderful story in the current Private Eye which could teach that pair a lesson about good sportsmanship. The Eye relates how, after the News Of The World's Stephen Moyes beat Gordon to scoop of the year at the British Press Awards, Gordon:
... [was] quick to rush over and congratulate [Moyes], and [well done] particularly for the sportsmanlike way he got very close and shouted his words of praise directly into Moyes' face lest he fail to hear him over the hubbub of the event.
It, erm, must have been the icing on the cake for Gordon.
