“This is the Second Best Day of My Life”


One second Stuart Tinner was sitting in the stands watching the St. Albans, UK-based Saracens rugby club against South Africa at London’s famed Wembley Stadium, and the next he’s won $420,000 and everything in his life changes.

The 24-year-old who plays a bit of rugby for a local club team was one of three fans who sent a text message to an in-stadium promotion; if any of the three could hit the crossbar of the uprights from 30 meters away they’d walk away with £250,000. Standing only in his socks, with just once chance, Tinner boots the ball and NAILS the crossbar dead-on.

“I guess I just kicked it as hard as I could and I don’t really believe what happened.”

After the game Tinner joined some of the Saracens for some drinks, still amazed at the complete turn his life had taken, after speaking with his parents he said he intended to buy an apartment and a car but otherwise intended to live his normal life.

Tinner acknowledged that this was a truly momentous occasion in his life; “This is the second best day of my life – the best was when I lost my virginity.”
