Sweets, get me a beer from the fridge…

5 Jun

Saturday and Sunday, in a man’s world, are very much dedicated to sport. And in actual fact, any sport will do – rugby, footie, golf, even darts for God’s sake if that’s the only thing that’s on. I do love watching sport, especially if the Springboks are out to be smashing the Ozzies – YES, bring on the World Cup already!

So in talking about sport what do 2 people do that come from different countries, say South Africa and Scotland, hypothetically speaking – but love watching sport and backing their beloved countries!? I would be highly upset if my man was backing on Australia, even if they were playing the All Blacks. Just not going to happen. Ever.

So here’s Miss M’s “how to” guide using the 2 countries above as examples:

When countries play:

  1. If South Africa is playing – he supports South Africa.
  2. If Scotland is playing – I support Scotland.
  3. If South Africa and Scotland are up against each other (the countries not the people gutter brain)– each to his own. But no name calling, nastiness and slating each other’s countries – just good sportsmanship. You will also bet, obviously for your own country, but this will make it fun. Especially for whatever you’re betting on. Enough said.

The above rules apply to say Super 15 too, even though Scotland does not play.

  1. If a South African team is playing they will be supported.
  2. If South Africa is not playing, no Ozzie team will ever be supported. So simply pick a Kiwi  team as the 2nd favourite.

Pretty easy no?

When teams play:

  1. Pick a team together – like for footie for example. 10 to 1 the chica is just going to go with whatever his team is here, especially if she is from South Africa. If you are in fact a footie supporter and you have team as I’m sure most ladies from Europe and the UK have then please replace your teams with countries as above and follow the guidelines accordingly.

When it comes to watching sport – let him watch. Don’t be a nag. If it’s not something you interested in go out for lunch with the girls, get a manicure and pedicure, shop, beach, driving range, chill at home and write random crap for your blog – do whatever. Just don’t nag. BUT:

  1. The sport has to be live. Unless it’s a major game that has been prerecorded because of the time differences that exist in the world and that you both simply cannot miss. This is a bit of a grey area, but use your discretion here please. We’re all adults. Some maybe not, but you get what I’m saying.
  2. He will have to record a chick flick and watch it with you after sport is done. Or, do something you want to do.
  3. If your team / country or his team / country are playing you watch. Not because you have to but because you should want to.
  4. You are not there to fetch beer from the fridge. Get a life boet.

I think it’s pretty simple peaches. No one likes complicated. So happy sportings!

And just for the record, South Africa is SO in it to win the Rugby World Cup. Just saying.
