I remember receiving this mail during the last World Cup. A letter which every Football loving husband would love to give his wife but couldn’t. I suddenly thought about this at this time when Italy fighting Paraguay, don’t ask me why ;). Thanks to Gmail which stores all your non-sensical mails forever, i mined my old mails to get this one. Enjoy it and if you want to send to it to your Wife / Girl Friend, copy it and send it. But don’t forget to credit the original writer, whoever it is

1. From 11 June to 11 July 2010, you should read the sports section of the newspaper so that you are aware of what is going on regarding the World Cup, and that way you will be able to join in the conversations. If you fail to do this, then you will be looked at in a bad way, or you will be totally ignored. DO NOT complain about not receiving any attention.

2. During the World Cup, the television is mine, at all times, without any exceptions. If you even take a glimpse of the remote control, you will lose it (your eye).

3. If you have to pass by in front of the TV during a game, I don’t mind, as long as you do it crawling on the floor and without distracting me.

4. During the games I will be blind, deaf and mute, unless I require a refill of my drink or something to eat. You are out of your mind if you expect me to listen to you, open the door, answer the telephone.

5. It would be a good idea for you to keep at least 2 six packs in the fridge at all times, as well as plenty of things to nibble on, and please do not make any funny faces to my friends when they come over to watch the games. In return, you will be allowed to use the TV in the afternoon, unless they replay a good game that I missed.

6. Please, please, please!! If you see me upset because one of my teams is losing, DO NOT say “get over it, its only a game”, or “don’t worry, they’ll win next time”. If you say these things, you will only make me angrier and I will love you less. Remember, you will never ever know more about football than me and your so called “words of encouragement” will only lead to a  divorce.

7. You are welcome to sit with me to watch one game and you can talk to me during halftime but only when the commercials are on, and only if the halftime score is pleasing me. In addition, please note I am saying “one” game; hence do not use the World Cup as a nice cheesy excuse to “spend time together”.

8. The replays of the goals are very important. I don’t care if I have seen them or I haven’t seen them, I want to see them again. Many times.

9. Tell your friends NOT to have any babies, or any other child related parties or gatherings that requires my attendance because:
a) I will not go,
b) I will not go, and
c) I will not go.

10. But, if a friend of mine invites us to his house on a Sunday to watch a game, we will be there in a flash.

11. The daily World Cup highlights show on TV every night is just as important as the games themselves. Do not even think about saying “but you have already seen this…why don’t you change the channel to something we can all watch?” because, the reply will be, “Refer to Rule #2 of this list”.

12. And finally, please save your expressions such as “Thank God the World Cup is only every 4 years”. I am immune to these words, because after this comes the Champions League, Italian League, Spanish League, Premier League, FA Cup, etc.

Thank you for your cooperation.
Your Loving Hus,

May be this will not be given to a lady who loves football like the Husband does, otherwise don’t mistake me ladies if your boy friends and husbands give this letter to you ..Jus kidding

PS: Credit to the original creator whoever it is 🙂

  1. ha… nice one….
    BTW no need to show/mail this to my wife as understands a few football lingos and she is a fan of Germany ;). Stays late night to watch the match with me. The catch is that for one month, breakfasts will be served late 😉


    1. I already told you are a very lucky guy to have a wife who watches football along with you. I still remember one girl from Kolkata ( a girl friend of my friend) asking " why these bunch of fools are fighting for one ball?" 🙂
