I don’t get it.  Why does a man have to watch practically all EPL games even if he’s just supporting one team (Liverpool FC)?  I had the misfortune of being forced to watch the Man Utd vs Arsenal game last night (we have just one TV, you see, and the internet was bonkers as usual), and I think that will probably be the last time that he’ll ever ask me to watch a game.

It was already the second half when we turned on the TV after coming back from the Celine Dion concert.

“I don’t think Cristiano Ronaldo’s that cute.”

“Well, he’s the number one pin-up boy for the gay community,” he responded with a deadpan look.

Several minutes later….

“If Manchester United’s from Manchester and Liverpool’s from Liverpool, where’s Arsenal from?”

“London lah.”

Hmmmm.  Why isn’t there a London FC then?

When Hargreaves took the free kick, the men in the “wall” didn’t look like they were interested in defending the goal.

“Why didn’t the men jump?” I asked.


I could see that I was making him think for a bit.  This was going to be an intellectual experience for both of us, I knew.

Minutes later, I saw the ball bounce off the referee.

“What if the ball goes out?  Who gets the penalty?”

At this point, I knew that the intellectual conversation which I craved so much had ended.  He got up, went downstairs, and came back with some delicious, creamy durian puffs which I had purchased earlier from Lee Lee’s Sumptuous Desserts at The Gardens Mall.  With the durian puff in my mouth, there was no way I could do any more talking.  Mission accomplished.
