Manchester, UK -- Ryan Giggs today made his 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000th competitive start for Manchester United - that's more than the number of protons in the observable universe. However, his manager now believes that Giggs could go on to play an infinite number of games for the club.
Giggs, 33, lined up against rivals Grays Athletic for the Premier League clash at Old Trafford earlier this afternoon, which United won 3-0. "I'm obviously very pleased about it." said the Welsh winger after the game. "Obviously ten to the power of seventy-eight games is a big milestone for any player, but I'm really just happy that we gave a good performance and got the three points like. I just hope I can stay fit and sharp for the rest of the season and keep putting in the performances."
Manager Lord Alex Ferguson was less reserved, saying that there was no reason why Giggs shouldn't continue to rack up games. "He looks after humself funtastically wull, and hus greet natural futness. He's un hus 4442nd year at the club, but uf he stays clear of unjury thur's no reason why he cannae go oaarn - the sky's the lumut fur hum. I honestly believe he culd be the furst futbuller to actually huv played un unfunute number of games."
Giggs now needs 1035 times as many games as he has already played to equal United legend Bobby Charlton's record of 10112 games for United. However, to reach the never-before-reached 'infinite game', he would, effectively, have to play an infinite number of games more than he has already played. Sport Mathematical Statistics Expert Peter O'Hanraha-hanrahan explained to us in terms we could quote;
|"Giggs has already played an enormous number of games, but it's hard to say how many more he needs to play to reach infinity. Effectively, however many he's played, he will always need to play an infinite number more to reach an infinite number. That said, once he does reach an infinite number of games, he will have either had to have been playing forever, or go on to play forever into the future. Since he was born at a well defined point in time, the latter is more likely. So while I wouldn't hold my breath, at the rate he's going I'd say he'll reach an infinite number of games some time around February."|
