I just love watching Manchester United play soccer/football. The games rarely show on a local television station here so I was pleasantly surprised that it was on one today. I usually have to watch them on a sports channel on cable.
I can be a bit of a nut during gaming season with all the hooping and hollering at the telly, but I enjoy myself SO much! And that’s the point of it really—to have a grand old time enjoying my life, isn’t it?
But, oh, how I love to see them win a game. It’s even more enjoyable then. They won the league last year and in so many prior years. So even though they’re in 7th place in the league so far this season, I have faith in my boys that they’ll hike right back up to the number one spot before the season is over.
Oh, this gets me so excited for the World Cup games this summer!! I’ll be rooting for both England and the USA. They both were lucky enough to get a spot in the World Cup and it pleases me so.
I can already foresee taking off work so I can watch the games “live” in real time—or at least so I can watch England and the USA in real time. It’s more fun that way.
Plus, it drives me absolutely mad to accidentally overhear people talking about the game and who won when I haven’t even seen the game yet!!!!! I don’t even want to accidentally see or hear media coverage of who won or what happened BEFORE I’ve had a chance to watch the game first.
I’d have to cover my ears all day or stay in isolation until I can get home to watch my recordings of the games. I tell you—it’s like walking around on pins, needles, and eggshells all day.
It’s enough to drive me insane before I can get home to watch my recording of the game. So in order to avoid myself going completely coconuts, I’d just rather watch the games live in real time. And with the big time difference there is, I’m sure I’ll be up bloody early in the mornings on some occasions.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, watch your favorite teams play their games throughout the year. Whether at home on the television or live at the stadium and in person is neither here nor there.
Take-Away Life Lesson: It’s perfectly normal to go a little coconuts while watching your favorite teams play during the gaming season. Aw yeah.
