Underdog

Underdog : Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Not sure how to participate?

On any given night, anything can happen / if the underdog is hungry the favourite might fall / with all of the people yelling and clapping / anything can happen, anything at all

Those are the lyrics to the chorus of the 80s hit single Anything can happen by Was Not Was. Whenever I hear or see the word “underdog” I always automatically think of this song and the chorus, which is instantly hummable and catchy.

Now, who doesn’t love an underdog who rises up to the occasion and tries to win the battle against the odds, against a much more fancied opponent. Against a tricky and difficult situation. In real life, we all love underdogs and I would love to be the underdog, the unexpected winner, the written off candidate who managed to surprise the public and to be the David who defeats Goliath.

It’s a romantic feeling that is full of charm and grace and excitement.
