NFL Game Vs Sunday Roast

昨天星期天,我们留在家里看一场精彩的美国橄榄球赛。

Ed说,两个很棒的橄榄球队(Indianapolis 和 New England)碰头,是今年的压轴大戏。

他也突然心血来潮,买了一大块猪肉来烘烤。

他说,这叫做Sunday Roast,是英式传统。

所以,他一边看橄榄球赛,一边烘猪肉。

我嘛,也不管是橄榄球赛也好, 英式传统也好,有一餐好的吃就高兴啦。

我在还没认识Ed前是对体育新闻没什么兴趣的人。

以前在马住时,对羽球有留意,因为马来西亚队当时很不错。

去了澳洲,忙工作等的,就更没什么时间追看体育新闻。

偶尔闲空,会看看网球赛或世界足球杯。

坦白说,看也可能是娱乐性地看看俊男多过真的看比赛 😉

认识了Ed后,虽也不是变得很有兴趣,

只是Ed很追体育新闻,我没什么事时也会坐下来瞧瞧。

Ed心情好时会解释给我听。

当我问得太多问题时,他就会把我赶走。

无论如何,他什么体育新闻都爱看,我也因此学习了很多。

虽然还是一窍不通,但在Ed的解释下,也开始会欣赏比赛中的战略。

只是,我倒是对现代的体育界很感疑惑。

小时候,老师教导我们伟大的体育精神。

可是,现在的体育界大多都跟金钱,名誉等挂钩。

体育世界背后的黑暗听得多了,到底真正的体育精神是否存在很令人怀疑。

哈!算了,我想太多了。

有好吃的就吃,有精彩的球赛就看吧!

其实,有点伤心Indianapolis输了。

还好,Ed煮的烤肉也真的很好吃 !:)

Yesterday, we stayed home to watch NFL. Just like most guys, Ed is a sport addict. The match between the two unbeaten teams (Indianapolis and New England) yesterday, of course, was something he would not miss. He was also in a mood to cook. He bought a big chunk of pork and wanted to make an English traditional Sunday roast. As for me, someone who is not really too interested in sport, so it did not really matter to me if it was a can’t-be-missed game, I was already very satisfied with a delicious meal and the fact that I did not have to cook 🙂

Before I met Ed, I was a girl who knew nothing about sports. When I was living in Malaysia, I did pay some attention to badminton games because Malaysia had a strong team then. After I had started to work in Australia, I was just too busy to have anytime to watch sport games. Once in while, I might watch one or two tennis games or one or two World Cup games. Frankly, I think it was more or less to check out the good looking athletes, more than real interest in the games 😉

After I met Ed, although I am still not a fan of sports, yet I would watch some (or any) games with him when I am free. When he is in good mood, he may try to explain to me about the rules and tactics in the games. However, of course, most times he is quite annnoyed by my bombardment of questions and just simply kicks me out of the coach. Nonetheless, I have benefited much from Ed’s patient explanation and started to learn to appreciate sports more, especially some of the tactics they used in the games. I find them fascinating. However, I do have lots of doubts in sports, especially in these modern days when most sports are all got to do with money and fame. I wonder if sportsmanship still exists, especially after hearing so many news of fraud or drug use.

Well, I think I think too much. Why not just simply enjoy the good game and the good food. Frankly, I was a little upset that Indianapolis team lost the game, thankfully, Ed’s roast pork was pretty amazing, so that’s make up for it ! 🙂
