top belief!

I used to believe that the winners of big sporting events like the World Series or Superbowl were actually "World Champions" and were somehow bestowed some type of high level political power like a seat at the United Nations or something like that. They worked in conjunction with winners of other events like Miss Universe to make sure the world was in order.

When I was at primary school, a lot of my friends used to think that the number on a footballer's shirt told you how old he was. The goalkeeper wears a number 1 shirt, so they must have thought all goalkeepers were big babies!

When I was little my dad would sometimes go out to play hockey with his friends. I thought he played on our local NHL team and announced this to my entire grade one class.

When I was 10 I got a baseball glove for my birthday and proceeded to demonstrate my version of a 'change-up'--a ridiculously slow wind-up followed by a sudden, last-second quick release! When friends came over my mom would call me over and say, 'Show them your "change-up"!'

I used to believe Rimming was an actual person that played on every basketball team. When a player would shoot the ball and it would hit the rim, the sports announcer would say “rimming, no!” I would look for the person on the court with that name, always bewildered that I couldn’t ever find him, seeing as how he was in every game I was watching.

When we heard the announcer during the football games our father watched on TV, my brother and I believed that every yard on the football field was as big as the back yard of our house. Football fields were ENORMOUS.

When I was a kid, there was a neighbor's house where they frequently watched wrestling matches on TV. Once the neighbor told me that the object of the wreatling match was to break through the floor of the wreatling ring. For a long time afterwards, any time I saw a wrestling match on TV, I kept waiting for someone to break through that floor into the area below, inside the box-like structure that supported the wrestling ring. For years I watched in vain to see anyone do that, and concluded for a long time that winning a wrestling match must be a quite rare event.

Ernie Harwell was the announcer for Tiger Baseball until a few years ago. I listened to him during most of my youth.

I used to believe that Ernie Harwell actually knew the towns that people were from when they'd catch foul balls at Tiger Stadium.

A ball would be hit towards the stand and Ernie would say " There's a loooong fly ball and a young man from Constantine Michigan caught that one."

I was always intrigued as to how he was able to figure it out so quickly.

I used to believe that the American baseball team, The Baltimore Orioles, were actually called the Baltimore Oreos, after the chocolate cookies. Somebody told me that it was Oriole, and that an Oriole was a bird. I got confused and thought that the birds were called Oreos.

The first time I ever watched a Water Polo Event in the Olympics, I was seriously expected to see polo players sitting on horses splashing through the water. I'd love to say it was when I was very young...
