My Spider lost 10yds for a penalty.

You can't make this stuff up if you tried .

I went to a junior football game on Sun as I promised my gal I would go see her best friends Kidd's play some FOOTBALL!!!!
I pull up the game is already underway, I drove up quiet like a gazelle frolicking through the shrubbery and park the car. 20 min pass, the game was not moving very fast and the Kidd's were more or less other end of the field until some tiny receiver made a huge play and took it down to my end. The play was about to commence when we heard a whistle but never saw what the penalty was until my GF kid came off the field and was mad because he just got a 10yd penalty for swearing .

They were about to start a play and he saw my spider and yelled out " holy **** look at the Ferrari", the ref goes "you can't swear" and he goes "ya I know but holy **** look at that Ferrari", Ref "sorry son thats ten yards on you". Boy was he mad.

I was tickled pink

Hillarious Night Life, but what's the story with not being allowed swear on the pitch. Has political correctness gone that far now?

Barry, these are Canadian kids playing sports, not Irish Kids.

Ah, must be a cultural thing so If we played by those rules here you wouldn't even get the kids out of the dressing rooms, never mind get the game started.

I learnt some of my best swear words from my old rugby coach...

Guys
Was talking to a mate about "being polite" on the playing fields and he reminded me of an incident almost 20 years ago when we were young teenagers.

Playing a local football (soccer) match and my friend keeps getting pulled up by the ref for going into tackles feet first. Finally gets himself a yellow card and final warning, and mutter "f*ckin w*nker" under his breath.
Ref hears the comment and calls him back... "what did you say?". "Nothin" he replies. Ref; "I heard it". "Then why did you ask, ye thick f*ck!!?". Ref; "Say that F word one more time and you're off!". "So you'd send me off if I told you to go f*ck yourself ye f*ckin f*ck!* Ref; "Damn right I would!". Pause... My mate; "Better not say it so". Ref; "Better not".

Whistle blows and game re-starts.

Not that I condone such a display of disrespect to authority, but all those years later it still makes me laugh...

Night Life - dunno how that would sit in the football matches over your side of the Atlantic....
