Mikey Knight, 28, had bought 16 tickets for the Norwich City vs Brighton and Hove Albion football match on 3 April and had them delivered to his parents' house.
So we imagine he was less than impressed when, while his 62-year-old mum Cherry was making dinner, they got stuck to the bottom of a roast-in-the-bag chicken and weren't discovered until they'd been well and truly roasted.
Understandably, the bad news put the bricklayer from Norfolk right off his food!
He said: "I could see the funny side but I was worried we'd missed the match."
Luckily, folks down at Brighton and Hove Albion were nice enough to reissue Mikey with new tickets for him and his friends as a goodwill gesture.
