    The World Cup GENIUS

    I only watch football once every 4 years: During the World Cup.

    But since ages ago, every time I watch a match on Astro and during half-time I get to see interesting match statistics

    and hear a football IDIOT genius named Shabby talk for 15 minutes about what I ALREADY KNOW I never knew about the game.

    For example, during one of the earlier matches I watched a couple of weeks ago, one person got sent off (got a red card).

    During the half-time break, Shabby pointed out something I never thought of before.

    "The team that got one player sent off is clearly at a disadvantage. That's 10 vs 11 men".

    (Well that wasn't exactly what he said but I think it was somewhere along those lines)

    WOW!!! Imagine THAT!!!

    What Shabby meant to explain to us was that the team that had one less player because of a red card was at a disadvantage in the game...


    Also notice the genius behind this tricky mathematical question. Each football team has eleven players. So when one player gets sent off we get TEN PLAYERS!!!

    WOAH... and Shabby could mentally work that out on the SPOT!!!!

    I say we give Shabby a medal for his intelligence.

    I mean... who else would've thought about that if it wasn't for Shabby and his high IQ.

    Before Shabby shed some light on us... we always thought that having 10 men versus 11 men was an advantage for the 10 men team right?

    I mean the less people a team has the more likely it would win right?

    I say we vote for Shabby as our next Prime Minister!

    And that all men should each give their left nipple to Shabby as a tribute!

    Shabby is a man that cares.

    Here's another example, if any one of you notice... Shabby also loves to teach us English by memorizing (and using) powderful words like....

    Well ok I can't remember exactly like what... but phrases along the lines of

    "Now that was an IMMACULATE HEADER".

    Some people think that Shabby should slow down on memorizing those very powderful words.

    And that it's just a matter of time before something like this happens...

    (pay attention to Shabby's facial expressions)


    Besides...what Shabby really said about the England vs Ecuador match was that England was playing terribly... WHICH WAS ANOTHER GENIUS COMMENT!!!

    I mean... England missed like a million opportunities to score goals and all...

    and they were going against Ecuador instead of a really tough team like Brazil

    and by the end of the first half the score was still 0-0....


    Shabby also mentioned that the English players were more popular than their Ecuador counterparts... another genius comment!

    Let me elaborate on that.

    The reason behind Shabby's logical comment was that most people watch the English Premier League and the English Premier League has mostly English players so English players like Beckham were most popular.



    We love Shabby for his genius.

    One day we shall all vote Shabby for Prime Minister.


    • I don't normally pay attention to what he says. For some reason I just dislike him lah. That, and his accent, although he probably can't do much about that.

    • sarcasm??? where?

      By Blogger Boss Stewie, at June 27, 2006 12:34 AM  

    • Aw. That's alright I guess. I can take a little brainless banter from commentators from time to time.

      However, reading your previous posts', HOW COULD YOU NOT HAVE SEEN THE ONE IN SENTOSA? With all its magnificiant laser shows at night?

      It's pretty famous as a tourist attraction because it's apparently supposed to be quite romantic.

      Though I've only been there with my parents..

      And there's another one at Clarke Quay. These two merlions sprout water out of their mouths I think. :/

    • ROTFLMAO. Yeah, I think most people don't like him. Hahahhaa!!! Nice one, boss.

    • vera... i'm sorry.., i shall go back to sentosa and see the merlion !!!

      yes jason... i think "don't like" is an understatement :P

    • i too can't stand shebbie. however i also can't stand chinamen who watch football once every few years and who criticise people who actually know about the game. i am not saying that shebbie is some sort of genius, but i think it suffices to say that he knows more than you on this subject.

      next, immaculate is not a big word... well actually it could be a big word depending on the person who is saying it. perhaps you could have said that it is not a suitable word for a football commentator to use, but it is definitely not a big word.

      also, if you did care to watch more football before making fun of someone who does it for a living, you would have realised that in many games, the team that is playing and passing well can still miss chances and end up drawing 0-0. only a footballing idiot will think that the score tells the whole story. just like how australia outplayed italy yesterday but went down 1-0. most people of reasonable intelligence can observe a football match and see incisive passing and quick movement and from there conclude that the team is playing well.

      so, once again, i must STRESS that i cannot stand shebby... and i am not defending him.. just attacking you. thank you.

    • i totally agree wif you !!! shabby is such an idiot !! his statements are like ultra DUH !!!

      By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 27, 2006 1:03 PM  

    • Hmmm... This Shaggy dude... errrr Shabby musthave been really titty... errr tacky on the field to have that much knowledge in being able to guess that a 10 man team is at a disadvantage. WOW! Who would've known?!

      a-non-e-mouse: It was just an immaculate post. So are you immaculate? =)

      By Anonymous Lance, at June 27, 2006 2:49 PM  

    • you're right non-e mouse, shabby probably knows more about football than 'chinamen' like myself (how much more is arguable) and you're right, whether immaculate is a big word or not depends on who says it and who listens to it.

      i particularly like the part where you say "so, once again, i must STRESS that i cannot stand shebby... and i am not defending him.. just attacking you. thank you."

      Polite but yet harsh... well done... if only more of us can express ourselves as well as you do...

      thanks for your opinion, and thanks for reading mine.

    • Don't usually post comments but finally came across someone who I can relate to on this. Still looking for a site of Shebby-isms!

      Classic examples: "I think at the beginning of the game...they were aiming for a win.." and...
      "Brazil will be facing a team with two mobile strikers"

      What?!?! As opposed to strikers who STAND STILL?? WTF...

      By Anonymous yinzz, at June 28, 2006 9:07 AM  

    • Boss Stewie : fair play to you. very fair comment. i have been reading your blog for some time now and find it hilarious. keep up the good work.

      yinzz : whilst i must admit that shebby does make ridiculous comments at times, the 2 you pointed out are just basic football terminology.
      1. certain teams go to matches looking for a draw.

      2. "mobile" strikers - strikers who move around the pitch a lot instead of just staying in the classic striker position. could also mean a striker who is very quick.

      maybe i am just disagreeing with all of you because i didn't hear shebby say it. he has a way of saying things that just makes it sound funny. that intelligent look, those (probably powerless) glasses, the serious look...
