One day when I was a child I saw my brothers playing football. When I asked to join them they said no, saying I needed the skill. I quickly ran inside and said to my mum: ''MAMMY MAMMY!! We need to go to the shop now!! I have to buy the skill!!!!.'' I spent another year after that looking for toy stores that sold the skill.

I used to believe that the word "volleyball" was actually "bollyball." And I would get into fights about it with my mom, insisting I was right.

When i was 5 year old i used to watch cricket with my father. He used to say that bowler was thrashed all around the park by batsman and i always felt bad for the poor bowlers and imagined them injured, being taken to hospital from ground. It was not until 3-4 years later that according to dad bowler went for many runs!!! I often laugh on me being soooo silly

I used to think that football players (American football that is) were not human. They wear those helmets and massive shoulderpads, which I thought were actually their heads and the shape of their bodies. I was very surprised the first time I saw one of them take his helmet off!

I remember once thinking that a game of cricket was about the two batters hitting the ball up and down, trying to hit each others wickets, and the fielders were only there to retrieve the ball.

When my father and little brother used to watch football on TV, the commentator would often make references to players being in the "penalty box". This was a specific area of the pitch from which penalty shots were taken.

I thought the "penalty box" was a big metal or wooden box that stood at the side of the pitch (near the manager's stand), and that players who'd committed a foul were locked in there until the end of the game. There was a little window so they could watch how their team were doing, but they had to sit in the box and reflect on their actions.

I used to believe that when football players were in a huddle, they were praying.

Dear god, help us win this game. Amen.

When I was 7-8 years old, I believed that the number an athlete wore was a rating on a 1-100 scale on how good that athlete was at that sport. For instance, a player that wore the number 96 would be really good, but a player that wore the number 8 would be pretty bad.

When I would hear cricket scores from an overnight session and they would announce 'Australia lost two wickets overnight'....I thought the actual wickets (stumps) were getting stolen and always wondered how they played the game when they only had three wickets left.

You know those first down markers in football that look like a bulls-eye? I used to think they were the Target symbol and I wondered why Target got lucky enough to get an ad gig like that.

I used to believe that everything that happens every four years (presidential elections, the olympics, leap year, exc) HAD to happen the same year of every 4-year cycle (probably because the summer olympics do take place during election years). I got very confused when the winter olympics were on and we weren't having a presidential campaign.
