Mari, lets talk about football.
In slightly different angle. From the point of view of the WAGS (wives and girlfriends)
How to react to your boyfriends' football enthusiasm?
Most of the males like to watch or play that game.
This is the very game that unites man like no other. This is the kind of hobby that when you are part of it, you feel like you are part of a very manly brotherhood with extra manhood.
And that is why most men like to be associated with football.
Someone working as cashier in Tesco with same job and pay sounds so much less MAN than the very cashier that works for Lee Hoe (Komtar punya sports shop) or Al-Ikhsan Sports.
SO, when you have such a the privilege to be crossing path with such a manly man, what should be your way of reaction, or rather, your way of life?
You can be extensively supportive, like following him to watch the match in a stadium or mamak, or watch together with him at home at 2.48am (like now the author is watching Chelsea vs Newcastle), keeping the football facts within your manicure and fingertips, or even to be pathologically wasting your youth to follow him to watch him playing futsal with his 9 other sweaty, smelly and very-bad-hair-do-friends.
"I love him, and his life interest as well."
I dont support such notion. really.
Or you can be pretentiously supportive, trying to grasp a thing or two about football, ranging from the high end knowledge of offside rule, to the low end knowledge of the fact that the ball should be kick towards the opposite direction together as a team with similar color of the top, so that you can scream together with him and as if you have been watching football since the day both your grandpas are born..
"I love him therefore I'll pretend to like his life as well."
I hate you.
Or you can be parentally supportive, trying to play the role of the "matured" one in the relationship. Like his mum lo, as long as he attends tuition, and stays at home to study when exam is near, he is allow to play a day or two. But then he must finish his homework first, you know those type of thing. This puts you on a higher moral ground, with more sacrificial status in all arguments, at all times.
"I love him, and if he wants to play football, and it is not interfering with my life yet, he can do his omg,time and money wasting football."
I can take this one.
You can just anti football. that's actually a superior break up tactic.
