I don’t know if I can ever watch sports again.
I’m so tired of cheering for the losing teams!!! No matter what sport it is – basketball, tennis, even GOLF! I always seem to pick the team/player that is destined to lose and play like rubbish…especially on the day that I’m watching.
Prime example – last night’s Euro 2012 football match. Okay not just last night’s – how about every single match that I’ve watched Les Bleus playing in since Zidane’s infamous headbutt in 2006. I literally have not seen a single match where the French team has taken a victory for 6 years!
*if you don’t remember Zidane’s headbutt – watch it below*
Last night was the last straw. I stopped watching half way through the France – Spain match because I got tired of screaming at the television saying “run faster!” “allez, allez, get it!” or “hurry up you lazy bum!” Spain beat us 2 – 0. TWO – NIL! Ugh!
Now before you all start giving me slack about supporting France and saying that’s what the issue is – it’s not! It’s not just in football that this happens! Every single time I watch ANY sporting event, my team loses. For a while I started to think I was bad luck for teams and shouldn’t support them… but then I had a reality check that the world doesn’t really revolve around lil’ ol’ me and I actually have no influence over the results what so ever.
Regardless, it’s no fun watching sports when your team ALWAYS loses, right!?
I always prided myself in the fact that I wasn’t a “glory chaser” – you know, those people who just cheer for the team that’s winning?? I think I might have to change that now.
Starting with football…
Les Bleus – you were my first love. But I think it’s time we break up because I didn’t agree on a “for better or for worse” with you and if you keep this up, I’m gonna give up on sports entirely!
Sincerely, your heartbroken fan…who will always love you really, but now needs to move on.
So… who should I cheer for now??
