WHERE IS THIS BEING PLAYED


WHERE IS THIS BEING PLAYED
Why do women always have to know where a sporting event is being played?  A woman walks in the room while a game of any sport is on the TV and they always ask,

“Where is this being played?”

Generally as soon as a woman finds out where the game is being played she asks two more questions and then just walks out of the room.

I used to think women wanted to know so they could see what the weather was like in another part of the country.  Apparently that is not true because they will also ask at a basketball game.   They can’t learn anything about the weather in an indoor venue.

Then I thought, maybe they want to know which team is the home team, even though they usually don’t know who is playing;  that is their  second question, followed by who is wearing the blue uniforms.  Then they leave the room.

Recently I was watching a bowling tournament (don’t judge, there is nothing else but meaningless basketball games and figure skating this time of the year) and Mrs. C asked me,

“Where is this being played?”

“I don’t know where it is being played.  What is the difference?  You can’t tell anything about the weather, and there is no home team…it’s bowling.”

Now comes the kind of woman’s response that forever has me scratching my head:

“You never know, I might see someone in the crowd that I know.”

“WHAT?”

 “Depending where the match is being played, I might know someone who is watching… and it drives me crazy that you don’t even know where they are.”

“This is bowling, there are about 75 people watching, there is no crowd,” and why is it so important to know where these bowling lanes are? They throw a ball at a bunch of pins, do you think they have to factor in the humidity and stuff.”

“You’re a jerk!”

Hint: The name of the team is on their jerseys, the logo on the field will tell you where the game is being played, the blue team will have their name on the shirts, and if it is bowling,

“Who gives a crap?”

  1. I can honestly say that I don't give a crap - well, unless I see someone I know in the crowd ...

  2. That's easy. It's a bowling alley. I always answer a stupid question with a stupid answer. You're trying too hard.
    If it's football, "In a Stadium".
    If it's golf, "On a golf course".
    The first one to speak after that, is the loser.

  4. Bowling used to be such a big deal, with many people owning their own ball and shoes. I don't even know where the nearest bowling alley is.

  6. I think the only questions I ask are - "Who's playing?" and "Is your team winning?" I honestly don't care one iota about those details but I care that it's important to him and his mood. :)

  7. Then there was the year when one of the guys' wives won the NCAA pool, 'cuz she went thru the pre-tournament paper and picked all the teams that wore orange (must've been the year Syracuse won). . .

  8. My question is always, "What sport is that?"
    It is always answered either with a deep sigh or an icy glace. Probably depending on whether the mystery team is ahead or behind.
    And that's what I get for just trying to be polite!

  9. I'm one of the few who really do care where they are bowling, but I grew up in the former bowling capital of the world.

  10. I have been known to ask about where the game is being played, mostly for home team advantage type of things, but I don't think I would ever ask about it with a bowling tournament. Thanks for the laugh!

  11. I try not to ask questions when people are watching sports. I take it as a great opportunity to read or write in peace!

  12. Um, i've never asked that question. And as lousy as i am at recognizing people, knowing someone might be there that i would know wouldn't help me anyway.

  13. I never ask those things, but the first though that came to mind when I read her questions was: "She must wonder if someone she knows is in the audience." And I had a feeling that the story was going to end with "Jerk!" I'm psychic like that.

  14. I don't recall ever asking where? I go to visit my son and whatever he is watching my questions are who is playing and who is winning? Then I head to the kitchen and make coffee.

  15. The other thing that annoys me is, whenever Momma Bear and I go to the movies...as soon as the movie starts she asks "What time is it?" then 20 minutes later "What time is it now?" AAARRGGHHH!!! "Time to watch the damn movie!!!"

  16. I am guilty of asking which team is wearing the blue uniforms (which are always the nicest) !
