If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have praised my Sir Nerdalot on many an occasion on my blog. This is not one of those times. Because, what is almost as bad as the Man Flu? Yup, you got it: Handegg-season!

fb_img_1465235134972Now, what is so wrong about Handegg-season, and why do I have a problem with it? Oh, let me count the ways (brace yourself):

funny-american-football-demotivational-posterWe are Norwegians. We live in Denmark. Handegg games come on in the middle of the night over here, because what’a-ya-know; we don’t play that stupid sport over here! Thus, we have to wait for the Americans to wake up, have their coffee, and start their game – and by then it is evening and soon night over here in the “Old World”

Who in their right mind would choose the substandard copy, when we can have the real deal in our own part of the world? Why does the good ol’ Nerd not follow Rugby? It’s right over there in the UK! He can get a cheap airplane ticket and go see a game live if he wants too!


Furthermore; there are no motorcycles in Handegg! Yes, you read me correct;

There. Are. No. Motorcycles. In. Handegg!

Shocking, isn’t it? They wear crash helmets, but at no point in the game will there be even one measly little motorcycle!

When I woke up, I asked him to sum his long rant up in one sentence (ten words maximm), or – if possible – into one word. “Tactics”, he said.  He must think I’m stupid. This is “tactics” displayed in Handegg: Run a yard – and everyone in a pile. Run another yard – everyone in a pile. Run another yard, and I’m out like a candle in a windstorm. Pfth! Tactics Schmactics!

You see – and this is the clincher, really – the other night, the Nerd was all engulfed in a NFL thingy. Yanno, wearing his jersey and being all “handegg-nerdy”. I was craving some attention, as I hadn’t seen the Nerd all friggin day. I tried to strike up a conversation, but he was not really listening to me, and only granted me answers in one syllable grunts. Figures, eh? So I opted for my go-to-move in situations like this; I started to take my clothes off all seductive-like. Yanno, batting eyes, pouty lips, wriggling slowly out of my clothes. I was down to my undies and socks, and still no response from the Nerd. I asked him, quite annoyed, was he unable to see what the heck I was doing?

“Yea”, he responded grumpily, “why can’t you sort the laundry somewhere else?”

  1. Dying laughing 😂😂 My hubby doesn’t care for sports- I’m quite thankful. But here in the Deep South of The US it’s a religion -that football! All our friends watch and this is very serious you know! Haha! Great post 😉

    1. Thank you! Yea, I understand that it is almost religious for some. In South America the real football (that you refer to as soccer) is higher regarded than religion. Over here it is also soccer that is the big thing, along with European Handball and wintersports 🙂

  2. Hillarious post. Here in South Africa rugby is king (or is it soccer?); anyway, it doesn’t matter as I don’t understand either. They should give everybody a ball of their own to stop the fighting.

  3. Yeah, I don’t know why they call it football. In our household, however, my daughter and I enjoy a watching a game now and again, and we do like the superbowl. My sweet husband, on the other hand, hates all sports, lol. Our compromise is to keep it to a minimum. She and I have been known to watch the game at the neighborhood bar (though neither of us is a drinker) just to stay out of his way. Compromise. lol 😉 xoM

  4. OK, this is hysterical. I don’t like football or handegg or any sports no matter where in the world they occur. But I do like how you try to straighten the whole mess, Plus, the jersey mixes just makes everything even more ridiculous. Thanks for a good laugh!

  5. Great post. I really loved it. In Australia, we have Rugby League, Australian Rules and Rugby Union and Soccer. We’re currently coming up to the grand finals so footy fever is in epidemic proportions at the moment. We all watch a bit of Aussie Rules here. It involves a lot more kicking and some incredible aerial antics. I’m not into sport but I enjoy the odd game. I’ve never seen a game of egg ball and it can stay in USA, as far as I’m concerned.
    Hope you have a great week.

    1. From what I understand, the Aussie version is quite brutal. I can definately see some entertainment value in bones cracking and blood gushing. Yup, I am that cynical ;-p
      Wishing you a fab week also!


  6. I’m one of the few American males that actually does not care one wit about “handegg”. If it suddenly vanished off of the face of the Earth I wouldn’t notice, except for, of course, all of my male coworkers moping around work all fall after they lost their sport….

  7. This is very funny. I can do without any of those winter ball games, but I would choose rugby myself if I had to have just one. Maybe he just wants to be original in Norway…

    1. Thank you for visiting and commenting 🙂 I will use your point of him wanting to be original the next time he ignores me for a game 😀
