Rob wittingly became a social media health expert when a fan asked him to provide a sick note to watch the FA Cup game. He instantly obliged, posing as a doctor, and posted a social media note that could not hold back readers from laughing. His note read, @Wrexham Canada is hereby excused from work on Monday, January 29, 2024. They have a weird cough or something.” The note continued with bizarre twists and turns.

It continued saying, “If that’s not enough of an excuse, let’s go with the flu. Wouldn’t you hate to catch it if they showed up to work in that condition? They are cleared to come back on Tuesday, January 30, 2024. Oh, I think that happens to be the day after the Wrexham match. Weird timing. Best Wishes, Dr. McElhenney“, he penned, after which he joked about being a real doctor!

(Don’t Google my credentials, just trust me. I’m a real doctor)“. The question initially asked by @WrexhamCanada was, “Hey @VancityReynolds, @RMcElhenney and @Wrexham_AFC can you provide me with a sick note for work so I can watch the match on Monday? #WxmAFC.” The club will take on former Premier League giants and six-time FA Cup winners, Blackburn Rovers, at Ewood Park.

Rob’s drollery on social media is not nascent. The star started the new year by trolling a hateful X account and saying he’d still be a fan despite repeated hate being received. In another instance, the 46-year-old posted a photo of himself watching a Wrexham game with Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively last and claimed to be an interrupting fan in front of them. Humor aside, his club has a great shot to make it big from here.

One take at a time

Growing up in a sporting background, I found a passion for soccer through the remarkable 2002 World Cup-winning Brazilian football team. Watching the Premier League where Thierry Henry-starring ‘Invincible’ Gunners and Sir Alex Ferguson’s glorious Manchester United had ruled, I had my heart set on Arsenal. However, Ronaldo Nazario, Rivaldo, and Ronaldinho are my favorite players and Lionel Messi is the GOAT.
