Maybe you read Mr. Poon’s previous post about the soccer game we watched last night. If not, scroll down and take a peek.
This is what we did for our date night. We were going to watch Iron Man 2 but, being a loving and caring wife, I told Mr. P we could stay home and watch the soccer game instead. Plus, I knew we’d just have to watch it when we got home from the movie anyway… that’s late!
To be honest, I also really like soccer and even enjoy watching it on TV so it wasn’t a great sacrifice for me. However, I had to laugh at the result of combining date night and soccer.
We were both watching the game. I didn’t think he seemed that much more absorbed than I did. But apparently he was performing complex analysis while I found myself saying things like this:
“Hmm… that’s an interesting font to put on a soccer jersey. I mean, I like it… but it’s not very sporty.”
(Jason agreed, for the record.)
Then, “Hey Backstreet Boy!” as I notice Stuart Holden for the first time. Jason chuckles. “No really… he highlights his hair?? He knows guys don’t do that anymore, right? RIGHT???”
Mr. P and I follow the English team Manchester United very closely, and that makes up the vast the majority of the soccer I watch. They are… really good. And their competition is also top-notch. Last night, the US didn’t exactly field their A-team and as I watched an enormous amount of passes not reach their targets, I thought, “You would never see this in professional soccer.”
Then the realization: This is professional soccer.
To round out the evening, we did go out for frozen yogurt after the game. That was nice. I do love me some mochi toppings!
While I enjoyed this date night, I think I’m also looking forward to seeing Iron Man 2 next week 🙂
