Daddy’s Perspective: How to con the missus into watching guilt-free soccer!

Posted on May 31, 2011


Hi, I hope you are all well.

Before I commence though, I must add I’m not a subscriber of the term ‘soccer’.

Where I live – where four codes of football dominates the local footy scene – it’s extremely important for the round ball code to thrive as it hasn’t been given any light of day by Aussie sports pundit.

It’s utterly essential the round ball stands up against other provincial football codes as truly, apart from Rugby Union, no one in the world gives an ape shit about Rugby League or Aussie Rules.

So football it is, at least in my daily vernacular.

For this article itself, I’m writing for an Asian audience. An Asia where only one football exists. So ‘soccer’ is used.

But I digress.

In the second of my ‘Daddy’s Perspective’ series with The Asian Parent, I continue to delve headlong into the male psyche.

TAPsoccerWhat makes men tick? Why are they the way they are? Why can’t women understand them?

This month’s article gives all men a good reason to watch the round ball game without the obligatory guilt that comes along with it.

Remember ladies, it’s for men only. Do not read or you’ll be breaching the trust you have built up in your man!
