How many of you have felt stupid and happy at the same time? Impossible? Let me story you what happened to me yesterday.
Since I had pay TV installed a few months back I have been watching some Football. The last time I really took an interest in football was during George Best's Manchester United days in the 1960's. I even remembered that day a long long time ago, when, for the first time I was able to name ALL the players playing in MU with George Best....ahhh those were the days...though for a while I was a bit confused about Charlton until I realized that there were two of them - Bobby Charlton and Jack Charlton - two brothers!
What I do these days is surf the TV channel and when I see a game of Football being played, click that channel and listen to the commentator to see if they are any names I would recognize playing in the matches being shown : Messi, Christiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic,Suarez, Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi, Suarez, Nehmar, Rooney, Gerrard..and if their names are mentioned I would stay on the channel to watch that match. I do not know the names of the clubs they play for only the name of the players matters to me....yes I can see some of you shaking your head in sorrow at my ignorance...but that was how ignorant I am and still am, about football.
Last night as I was surfing the sports channel I came across a football match that was just about to start and it said FC Barcelona - which sounded familiar - so I stayed on the channel. As you know at the start of every game they put the names of the players and the position they play on the screen and I noticed that the three forwards for Barcelona were Messi, Suarez and Nehmar - my three favorite players and all playing for the same team! Jesus Christ! Why did I not know this before?
That was when I felt stupid not knowing that three of my favorite players were on the same team and at the same time happy because I now know that whenever Barcelona plays - I can watch all three of them playing!
That is what I mean by feeling stupid and happy at the same time....have a nice day!
