i find your lack of sports knowledge disturbing

Moss: Awright, ‘arry? See that ludicrous display last night?

If you are a fan of ‘The IT Crowd’ like I am, the scene with that dialogue will  instantly pop into your conscious.


The narrator speaking off camera: Meet Sid, 26 years of age, residing in the United States of A and not following any Cricket, Baseball, Tennis, American Football, Soccer, Basketball or F1(not the visa)…our protagonist is at a niche disadvantage.

Sid to empty water cooler:  “I get left out of most sports talk at work.”

Sid to primary care physician: “Do I play any sports?  Hmm..I go to sports bars. But since I do not follow any sport per se..visits to sports bars are almost always for binge drinking games.”

Gtalk-conversations with similarly a challenged friend.

Sid: Tum NFL follow karre?
rrp: Just from the start of this season.
Sid: Hum us department mein weak hain.
rrp: Naku pedaga ardham kakapotunde; roomie baga chustadu, alavatu aindi.
Sid: Will you be facebooking the superbowl ?
rrp: Ipudu ade trend le. Silent ga flow lo follow aipo.
Sid: Nenu kastam ga basketball follow avutha. Adi chalu ani fix ayya.
rrp: Basketball racha hai. Manchi hype untadi game lo. A few weeks back lebron james ki game dekh ke flat hogaya. Apati nunchi koncham chustuna.
Sid: Aisa kya..
rrp: Vadamma ekado oka dagarra ninchoni itla antadu, banthi poyi basket lo padtadi. Vere team vallemo kinda padi meeda padi basket lo veste adi miss.
Sid: There should be a club for people like us.
rrp : Speak for yourself. I’m a sports person now.
Sid : Nannu sack chesav ga.
