Top 10 Things He Yells at the TV During the Game
Posted on November 7, 2011 by Lena & Jules
There is a universal code among men uniting them to use the same ten phrases when yelling at their team. The last time we checked, sound waves do not travel through the TV, directly to the team’s bench, but let’s not burst their bubble. Here are the ten most frequently used sayings by our men and what is crossing our minds while he’s coaching from the couch:
10. “THIS IS AN EMBARRASSMENT!”
What he’s thinking: This team is crap. Why am I cheering for them and wearing their jersey? I have a reputation.
What she’s thinking: The cable guy is here and the living room is a mess.
9. “WHERE IS EVERYONE?”
What he’s thinking: The other team is killing us. My favorite player is all alone and no one is helping him. This is a crime.
What she’s thinking: His friends haven’t even got here yet to watch the game. I want them out by midnight so I can get a good night sleep.
8. “WHERE’S THE DEFENSE?”
What he’s thinking: We need more protection. We need to block shots. We can win this.
What she’s thinking: The next time his mother makes a comment like that, I’m not going to let her get away with it.
7. “WHY IS THERE SO MUCH OPEN SPACE ON THE FIELD?”
What he’s thinking: The players need to regroup and get organized out there.
What she’s thinking: Why can’t he get our lawn to look that green?
6. “WHAT’S WRONG WITH EVERYONE TONIGHT?”
What he’s thinking: The team is over-trained and did not get enough rest this series.
What she’s thinking: Why are there no good looking men on this team?
5. “ARE YOU BLIND?”
What he’s thinking: Bad call by the referee. Pay better attention.
What she’s thinking: Does that coach own a mirror?
4. “I CAN’T HANDLE THIS!”
What he’s thinking: The game is so close, the pressure is too much for me.
What she’s thinking: Here, pass me the remote so I can take you out of your misery.
3. “ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS IS A JOKE!”
What he’s thinking: My team is playing so badly that it’s not even funny.
What she’s thinking: Yes, it is. Remind me why we have to keep watching?
2. “THAT WAS A CLEAN HIT!”
What he’s thinking: That should not be a penalty. It was a fair play.
What she’s thinking: Finally some excitement in this game.
1. “CAMMON, CAMMON, CAMMON!”
What he’s thinking: Hurry, get that ball in.
What she’s thinking: Hurry up and score so this doesn’t go into overtime.
