I’ll admit it. At first I went all Mrs McJudgey Pants and thought to myself come on girlfriend. You KNOW the cameras are on you. Act like a laaaaaaady.
And then I really thought about it. I thought about it as the sweary footballers wife that I am and then realised oh my goodness if you captured every swear word I used during a game it wouldn’t be a pretty sight.
Luckily for me, no one cares too much what I say or look like so cameras are never on me. That and the fact that I’m often at home with my kids watching the games on telly ensure my sweariness goes unnoticed but let me tell you no one on the opposite team can ever escape my wrath.
In fact, sometimes players in our own team can’t escape my wrath (sorry guys).
Not even my husband can escape my flying, filterless F-bomb if he so much as DARES to give a ball away or get a reckless yellow card.
What the actual f*uck.
So Andy Murray’s fiancé swore during an intense Grand Slam match. She was caught saying, ‘F*****g have that, you Czech flash f***’, a comment directed at semi-final loser Thomas Berdych.
I have had my share of watching intense football games. I’ve watched my husband been kicked studs up and nearly seriously injured. I’ve watched him being hurled to the ground and actually punched (I’m looking at you, grub in the Queensland NPL). I’ve watched him overcome criticism and go on to have man of the match performances and I’ve said, out loud, albeit mostly in the privacy of my own home or in the presence of trusted family or friends:
“Fucking have that, fuckers”.
My God. Isn’t it NORMAL to feel passionately about the people you love and what they do? You see them train and train and sweat blood and dedicate everything to a sport and it’s only natural to want to see them win or do well. It doesn’t mean the victims of your shouty, sweary rants are actually fuckers, they are just fuckers for those moments of competition.
It’s nothing personal.
So after the whole oh my goodness, my oh my, how can Andy Murray’s fiancé say such foul things, it’s an abomination, a detriment to the human race, a bad example of women and how dare she and doesn’t she realise people are watching DOESN’T SHE REALISE sweary situation, she returned to the grand final of the Australian Open as a spectator wearing this:
How awesome is that?
And so this sweary chick won me over. Just like that.All comments read, appreciated and responded to. So thank you x
