I was out of my element.

Yesterday I got up to watch the Manchester United vs. Liverpool game on DVR. There was no way I was getting up that early to watch it live. I was pretty stoked since a bunch of big names were playing. Andy Carrol was making his debut for Liverpool and Suarez was in beast mode during the match. My boy Chicharo scored with a header, again. He's always in the right space and makes it look so easy. However what ruined the game for me was talking to my father first thing in the morning. He didn't know that the game was played that just hours before and thought it was earlier in the week. He went on to ask me what I thought of the 3-1 Liverpool victory and what it meant for MANU's season. I thanked for telling me the score to the game I was about to watch and said that it's not big deal since they have a few insurance points in the table. My level of stokedness was dramatically lowered. I would assume the disappointment is comparable to to a 6 year old girl finding out that the dog dies in Marley and Me at the end of the movie albeit the tears. I was no longer excited to watch the game knowing the scoreline. The DVR was in FF x2 mode for most of the game. From now on, whenever there a big match or any sporting event that I want to watch I will to try my hardest to DO IT LIVE.

Last night I also made a rookie mistake. After looking through all the wonderful comments left on my blog and making sure there was no spam I proceeded to delete all of them. This was not my intention of course. I thought clearing the comment portion of my Dashboard would be an easier way to see if I had received new comments. Man, was I wrong. After deleting the 30+ comments I thought it would be a wise choice to turn comment moderation on that way I know when new comments are posted. So feel free to leave a comment again on the previous posts.

This morning after playing a few online matches of FIFA I remembered why I missed FIFA 04 so much. You would think it was because I was 13 and debt-free; however it was the Radiohead song that played all the time. I don't know how to describe the part in the song that I like so much but I believe it sounds similar to someone constantly making farting noises with their lips but a little more mature. Even though this Youtube video does not give it justice because it can't hit the low parts of the song, take a listen to Myxomatosis, nostalgia awaits.

  4. @Jack Mussolini: That's odd I though everyone in Europe was a fan of football. I guess I have a similar situation in the sense that baseball is the US' national sport and I absolutely can not stand watching a game on tv but going to the game is alright. However I really enjoy collegiate American football.

  5. Big radiohead fan, so-so soccer/football fan.

    I'm going to echo what you said about going to the game. I love sports, but prefer to watch a live match. Sitting and watching on tv does nothing for me.

    I could never get into the FIFA video games, just too much for me to manage, and I didn't like the way the AI was managing my team. Which is funny, because I feel the opposite about Madden. I could play that all day....
