For me, it's not a rule that we must learn life lessons from soccer. But in recent times, I've observed some fans' reactions to match results, that are teaching me lessons.
1- When Man U and Arsenal win against any club, their fans celebrate in a quiet way.
2- When Chelsea wins against any club, Chelsea fans celebrate in a very big way.
3- Anytime Man U and Arsenal lose a match, Chelsea fans rarely care.
4- But anytime Chelsea loses a match, Man U fans and Arsenal fans celebrate in a very big way, with loud noise.
5- Man U fans and Arsenal fans celebrate Chelsea losses more than how they celebrate their clubs wins.
6- On the hand, Chelsea fans celebrate their club's wins more than how they celebrate Man U and Arsenal losses.
7- Again, I notice that Man U and Arsenal fans mocking Chelsea, more than they appreciate their clubs.
8- On the hand again, Chelsea fans appreciate their club, more than how they mock Man U and Arsenal.
For me, I've learned the lessons; which are:
1- I must learn to celebrate my wins in very big ways.
2- I'd rather make noise celebrating my success, than make noise celebrating someone's failure.
3- I must learn to appreciate myself more; and desist from mocking others.
4- Some people take more pleasure in seeing me fail, than in seeing themselves succeed.
5- Some people celebrate my losses more than how they celebrate their own wins.
6- If I don't celebrate myself, hardly would others celebrate me.
If you like, call me Chelsea fan, it's your opinion; and it doesn't concern me.
We may accuse Chelsea fans of making lots of noise, but I like the way they celebrate their wins.
My observations may not be the same as yours. Sorry about that. But they're my observations; and I'm learning my lessons well.
I'm not paid for being a fan of any soccer club. Hence, I'd rather learn the lessons that would help me in life.
Always, I belong to no club, and I'm for every club -- only depending on the match. (LAUGHS)
