Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli Conquer Elements by Sharing Jacket on Manchester City Bench (Photo)


There are some moments that make watching sports on television a joy to behold.

Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and the camera crew at Sky Sports gave fans one of them Sunday, when the Manchester City pair were seen sharing a jacket while sitting on the bench.

The strikers were left out of the starting lineup by manager Roberto Mancini, and they watched most of City’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal from the sidelines.

It was a brisk day in Northwest England, as temperatures hovered in the low to mid 50s (Fahrenheit). When the rain started to fall around halftime, some took desperate measures. At one point in the second half, cameras panned over to the City bench.

There sat two grown men, two millionaires, two world-famous soccer stars, sharing a single club jacket in order to stay dry.

They both entered the game in the second half but had little impact on the proceedings. Maybe they were too cozy underneath and didn’t feel like leaving the bench?
