Creepin’ on the `Gram: The hours after you earn promotion to the Premier League, Watford edition

Watford FC is going up!

The English Championship team clinched promotion to the Premier League with a 2-0 win over non-promoted Championship team Brighton & Hove Albion. The win itself didn’t catapault the Hornets up to the Premier League penthouse; they team had to watch other results and learned of their promotion while on the team bus. (Watch this. Good times.)

We are Premier League!!!! #watfordfc #fornicforpromotion

That must leave you wondering: How do players spend the next couple of hours after learning of their promotion to the self-proclaimed greatest league in the world?

Well, that’s why Baby Jesus gave us the Instagrams.

Maybe you’re like Mexico international Miguel Layún and take a reasonable selfie, accenting the photo with a series of cliches.

But more likely, your first move is to start drinking on the bus.

By now you should know where this post is going.

Drinking on the bus suggests that there was beer on the bus. Although, the bus could very well have stopped for someone to pick up a few beers, I believe the Watford boys were prepared. Here’s why:

That’s right. Super Bowl shirts. Watford had Super Bowl shirts ready to hand out.

This is something to be proud !!!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Well done lads…

Maybe these shirts are from something else, but I refuse to believe that because it’ll ruin my narrative.

Your next move as a newly promoted person may involve self-respect. If you’re Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, you might do something classy like go get cleaned up and prepare for the evening with wifey.

Or, you can continue to the restuarant, where you start jumping up and down and chanting because, goddammit, you just got promoted to the Premier League.

The restaurant adventure will continue for some time. Drinks will flow. You may be the fella in the corner taking a bottle of lager to the dome completely oblivious to the fact that tomorrow you’ll be comatose and moaning until evening.

Did someone say Premier League?….#watfordfc Mad night already here!!

Things will escalate. Because of course they will. You’ll start showering teammates with drinks. That’s what bros do. It’s fun. Later, spraying your bros will turn into spraying strangers. You could very well end up in prison, but FUCK IT, YOU JUST GOT PROMOTED TO THE GODDAMN PREMIER LEAGUE.

Party time!🎉🎉🎉

Eventually, every Watford fan will find you. That’s because you’re going to be obscenely drunk and won’t be able to keep your mouth shut. The same will apply to the Watford fans who eventually find you. Debauchery will ensue.

Yooooo Watford fans having it with us 🙌🙌🙌😂😂😂😂 mad ting

Congrats, Watford. You’re going to feel like absolute shit in the morning, but enjoy yourselves. And be safe.
