I’m not a huge soccer fan. In all honesty, I could say that about pretty much any sports. Compared to my brother, and a number of friends who have their favorite clubs and always enjoy watching soccer or some other sports as often as possible, one could ask – what the hell is wrong with me?
And nobody knows the answer. For some reason I’ve never been the competitive kind. Even when I’m playing table soccer with someone, while it’s always nice to win, I never mind losing either. Of course, there is a small ‘however’. I do love to win against people who are incapable of losing. People are strange, right?
For me – going to the bar to meet up with some friends, only to discover that there’s a game on – it’s often quite annoying. Aren’t you guys getting tired of it yet? Every day the same thing. Yes, I know, the teams are different and …the ball moves in different directions…I guess, but it’s still the same ball. Well, sort of.
I do agree with one thing – watching soccer on the stadium every once in a while, and I do mean every once in a while not every single week, can actually be fun, sometimes. Friends, beer, crowds. It can work at times. Sometimes. Especially if you’re watching the game of your national team.
While watching soccer is something I don’t generally enjoy, I do like betting on things. The weirdest bet I ever made was actually a sure thing and I made it when I was still in primary school. While one could argue that there’s no such thing as a sure bet unless it’s fixed, there actually can be. A friend of mine was confused for some reason, so we bet on the day’s date. And obviously I knew what day it was. Well, that aside, what I wanted to say is that I could considering being a sport bettor myself. That’s something I could actually enjoy doing. But there are a few … let’s call them problems with that. While I think I sort of would know how to find the best bookmaker and I might even understand the basics of betting very well – these things unfortunately don’t compensate for the fact that I really, really don’t care about sports. And as such, I could never be good enough at betting on sports. If you do like sports and want to make money with it, you can find the best soccer betting guide here. For me, unfortunately, knowing everything about betting and nothing about sports, I’m left out.
I simply get bored while watching sports on television, and it’s weird to me that others don’t. But I guess we are all different.
