Soccer Mania

The soccer excitement is still going strong in some countries but my guy is devastated because his countries team lost to Italy turning his life into a disaster.. the perils of being a soccer fan!

Yesterday seemed as if the world had ended even though we had nice weather outside. But the loosing of his team brought a dark cloud over our house and he and his buddies sat there in the living room with water in their eyes. A very moving moment for anyone looking at them all there in my living room.
I could be a wise guy and say “ I wish I filmed it”, but that’s being a bit harsh on them.

I sympathize with them all but somehow I cannot get so emotional about the whole thing – maybe this is a guy thing and gals just aren’t tuned into such things when it comes to soccer matches. I really don’t know.

But anyways; there’s a cute turtle that was to forecast which team would win and he seemed to get a bit sidetracked with the passing away of his cousin the 100 year old turtle and forgot all about predicting which team would win.
Maybe that’s why the team didn’t win because “schröte” was so slow getting around to thinking about which team would win.
A very disappointing fact for “Schröte” fans. Then to top it off “Schröte” got plastered too, and so I think this could be the end of his career as a turtle reporter and forecaster, because he didn’t concentrate on his job and let emotions & alcohol take over.

But other countries can rejoice in the fan fair on the weekend with the climax of which team will win, and of course my guy will be watching glued to the TV set watching the game as a discerning living room spectator.

But I wonder will “Schröte” the turtle predict which team will win? I am sitting on the edge of my chair waiting patiently for his prediction. I love soccer and it’s turtle!

Sensational Soccer

Well, since the European Soccer championship has started my world with my guy has changed. He is now living in another world and that is “Soccer”! I personally haven’t anything against the game even though I do not see what is so exciting about a bunch of guys running after a ball.

There seems to be this person called a referee who acts like a mom at a playground keeping an eye on the kids and seeing to it that they behave themselves and when some guy does something wrong he is shown a yellow card – sort of like a mom scolding him for not playing fairly and if some guy goes too far and does something that he really shouldn’t do then “mom” comes along and shows a red card meaning: no more playing on this playground anymore!

Those “mom’s” can be really tough cookies and don’t put up with any nonsense either. I guess that’s what their paid for-right???

Those guys run after that ball and the crowd roars in the hopefulness that their team will score a goal and even at my place my guy and his friends are the same and seem to be sitting on a hot bed of coals whenever their favorite team gets close to their goal posts and somehow they seem to forget that they are at home and not at the soccer stadium and scream and holler all sorts of stuff at the TV as if those guys playing can hear them. And I just sit there in amazement watching the whole ordeal, and only to be reminded that I don’t understand the intricacies of this sport.

Ok, the good bit is that some of those players don’t look too bad from my point of view and my gal friends think the same too and so we started watching the game so we can watch the guys and who cares about who wins – the important thing for us is -> good looking guys!!

But I am brought back to reality by my guy reminding me that this is serious stuff and not to be taken lightly because I informed my guy that me and my gal friends have decided to watch a couple of games ourselves and naturally without our guys around, so we can have our fun too. Though you do need a bit of patience because I find the games start out rather slow and it takes awhile before there is some real action and the guys show their real talent. But it can be worth the wait.

Gals enjoy the Euro soccer championship and all those wonderful looking legs running up and down the soccer field!
