London - Pakistani-American billionaire Shahid Khan's brand new superyacht Kismet was seen limping to emergency moorings this afternoon after springing a leak close to Blackfriars Bridge on the Thames in London.
Named after the Scottish word for 'spooky fate' the ship was supposed to showcase Khan's arrival ahead of Sunday's NFL International Series game when his team the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Dallas Cowboys at Wembley, the country's premier national stadium.
By early evening the omens had worsened as marine engineers confirmed 'some cute and helpless baby seals' had become gummed up in the yacht's propeller causing an engine seizure and massive loss of face.
Unfortunate pics of the furry critters' remains were splashed all over the national news in an otherwise boring day with headlines droning on an on about the vapid US midterm elections.
Expect the Cowboys to win Sunday's game by a landslide as Shahid Khan's karma takes more knocks.
