Forgive me Lord for I am ignorant!

Dear Lord,

Forgive me Lord for I am ignorant

Forgive me Lord for 
I don’t understand the craze behind cricket
I don’t understand how people can watch the same ball being bowled again and again and the only excitement is when there are 4’s and 6’s
I don’t understand why people bite their nails when their favorite team needs 4 runs from the last ball in the last over to win the match. I would do that only when watching a horror movie

Forgive me Lord for 
I don’t understand why people refresh their browsers and exchange cricket scores more frequently than replies to official mails
I don’t understand why my friends get up at 5 in the morning to watch a match  and seeing my ping only reply “Watching match” 
I don’t even know what is that which keeps up my colleagues at 3am in the night to watch cricket
I don’t understand the huge crowds outside TV showrooms with people in a frenzy when an important player has been bowled out

Forgive me Lord for 
I don’t understand the difference between a test series, a one day match and all other series. For me, they are just various names of cricket matches
I don’t even know what is off side, clean bowl, spin bowler and all the other phrases which sound greek and latin to me
Forgive me Lord for
The FIFA fever has not caught unto me
I don’t know the thrill or happiness you get on seeing a 1.5 hour match with people crazily running around a ball knocking people down and injuring some in the process too
I don’t know even know a football player except for Maradona and thats because he is a legend in himself

Forgive me Lord for
I feel like an alien from Zoombie land
I am so very ignorant and may continue to be so
But I have only one wish, Please don’t make me so much ignorant in my next birth :).

Your faithful follower.

  1. Heyyy, you are not alone !!! I am not into sports at all !! and I have all those ‘wonders’ too !!! 😀 😀 😀

  2. Forgive me dear Lord, for you made exactly like Shilpa. And I dont want to enlightened on this one, please, even in my next birth. I am happy like this…My hubby is glued to FIFA…so I get extra blog time… 😉

  3. ha ha … There are somethings we cannot understand and somethings we can understand and it is perfectly understandable that certain things remain non-understandable. That is how God willed it to be 😛

  4. hahha..funny post…I am not a huge fan and don’t lose my precious sleep over a match..I feel that is ridiculous.
    Though I have done my share of crazy behaviour when Kapil Dev and Gavaskar were still playing…these days have no interest in Cricket.

    I am watching FIFA though not religiously…

  5. I am with you on the cricket bit 😀 😀
    No interest and I get bored(for I am not a TV person) when hubby actually takes control of the laptop refreshing for score every 10 seconds.
    But sports in general, I am quite into sports both playing them and watching (especially football) them 😀 😀

  6. haha… you are not the only one when it comes to cricket… the 20-20 somewhat makes it fun..since not super long.. for FIFA>… i shall wait for the quarter finals to get intrested….untill then..let hubby enjoy his time!

  7. Forgiven …. but you better “catch” up …life is all about “one day” at a time !! OK that was lame … enjoyed the post !!

  8. You are certainly not ignorant considering the thoughts you have put down for each of the game to support your views 😉

  9. 😀 😀 😀 😀
    Forgive me lord for I am too much into cricket and football, and I bite those nails u gave me, when they need 7 runs of the last ball, and how much I trouble u, forgive me lord for I will trouble u again when my team needs a goal in the last 90 secs….
    Lord u listening, or u watching Fifa and Asia Cup too, are u biting ur nails 😉

  10. LOL! This could have been my husband lamenting 🙂

    And can you believe it, FIFA is so huge here that he is actually making an effort to watch it, just because he needs to know something about it 🙂

  11. he he he..:) Hey u need not ask for knowledge and salvation in your next birth.. u can always remove that ignorance even in this birth.. 🙂

  12. LOL this is really funny. I hope you have been forgiven, because until you are forgiven you will continue to be subjected to the yells of frustration every time a goal or a sixer is missed 😆 Life is tough …for all you know, you will learn to respond to your friends’ “Watching match”, with ‘What’s the score?’ 🙂

  13. Oh Girl.. god willing to grant your wish by in this life itself..

    all you have to do is constantly watch football and cricket wth respective fanatics who won’t give the remote even during advertisement and by the virtue of patience you will become a fan.. 😀 😀

    thatastu 🙂 🙂
