我愛英格蘭國家足球隊 I love the English national football team

請不要罵我傻,先聽我解釋吧。

我不愛足球,但OH是一個標準球迷,所以我在家裡真的很難避免不看足球。對我來說,看英格蘭踢國際比賽就像買彩票一樣。你購買一張彩票不會期望贏得大獎,但你每次對開彩結果總抱著那一點點希望。事實上,我相信沒有任何理性球迷會認為英格蘭可以贏得冠軍,但每次他們比賽時,球迷總希望他們可以多贏一場比賽…起碼不會輸給冰島。

作為一個非足球迷的女性,我對英格蘭國家隊的看法非常簡單:

〜 把他們當作你的孩子,對他們抱著期望,但亦要作最壞打算
〜 把他們當作你的家人,有時(其實是大部分時間)他們會很討厭,但你又不能做些什麼
〜 把他們當作你的朋友,大家不是常常見面,那見面時還是開心些比較好
〜 最後,把他們當作你的丈夫/男朋友,不要期待他們會給你驚喜,因為你只會失望

我愛我的家人,愛我的朋友和愛我的丈夫,所以我愛英格蘭國家足球隊。

Please don’t call me crazy! Hear me out first.

I don’t really watch football, but with OH being a big football fan its hard to avoid it at home. For me, watching England play in an international tournament is like buying a lottery ticket. When you buy a lottery ticket, you don’t expect to win the jackpot, yet you still have this shimmer of hope as you check the numbers. Deep down, no rational fan expects England to win an international cup, but each time you watch them play, you hope maybe they can win just this one more game … or at least not lose to Iceland.

As a female non football fan, my view on the English national team is pretty simple
~  treat them like your kids, hope for the best but prepare for the worse
~  treat them like your family, sometimes (or most of the the time if you’re unlucky) they’re really annoying but there’s not a lot you can do about it
~  treat them like your friends, you don’t see them all the time, so just have fun when you do
~  and finally, treat them like your husband/boyfriend, don’t expect surprises, you’ll only be disappointed

I love my family, love my friends and love my husband, so I guess I do love the English national football team.
