The first time I saw professional boxing on television I was 5 years old. I believed that the fighter's were putting their teeth back in before a fight started and that they were angry at being without clothing. I was almost 10 when I actually tried boxing first hand and realized that my teeth and mouthguard both fit in my mouth, still I refused to let the other man get me in my underpants
When I watched a curling game on the movie newsreel, I thought it was played on a waxed floor rather than on ice.
When I was little I used to believe that boxers fight only fists into fists.
To me, football (or actually, futbol) has always meant what is called soccer in the United States. When I first saw American Football at a fairly young age, I thought that players in that sport had gigantic muscles, though it turned out to be their shoulder pads.
When I was in 6th grade, I believed that in baseball, if you hit a home run, you'd get 7 points instead of 1, because running all the bases counted more than just running from 3rd to home. I envisioned as similar to a touchdown, which I also believed at the time was 7, not 6 points.
My brother used to think that "hump" meant "wrestle". I can't imagine what he said to his opponents in wrestling matches at school.
I used to believe that Sammy Davis Jr. was a baseball player. That belief went down the drain when I saw Wayne's World 2
I used to be a great Cricket Fan. When i was a child, i always believed that when a batsman gets out, he infact dies and becomes the past. So whenever my country's batsman would get out, i used to start weeping bitterly. [lolzzz]
I used to be absolutely convinced thay volleyball was bollyball. I said it all the time and I guess that when I said it people didn't realized because no one ever corrected me. I finally realized that it was volleyball one day when I was reading with my dad. I came across the world and realized that it was volleyball not bollyball, I was so shocked. I wondered why no one ever corrected me and why I had never heard anyone destinctly say it with a v.
Whenever I watched a football game, and they interviewed the coach, I always thought it was weird that he was "smoking" because I lived in a warm place, so I didn't know it was cold and you could see your breath.
I used to think my aunts friend Willa Mae must be the sister of Willie Mays
i didnt know why Tony Hawk's nickname was birdman until I was 16 years ols
When my sister was little, she thought that the designated hitter at a baseball game was the hitter that didn't drink!
I used to believe that the Super Bowl was a bowling tournament.
When I was little, I used to think that (after watching in slow motion) centers in football pooped the football to quarterbacks. I s*** you not.
I used to believe that the rock thing they used in the sport Curling, was a tea kettle.
when I saw a skiing event on TV, I figured that it must have taken place on a big cloud because of the white stuff everywhere. I don't know how old I was then, but I probably had not seen much snow until then.
So when I was outside and the sky was cloudy, I always tried to spot if someone was skiing down the cloud hills.
no success. ever.
i watched a lot of football with my dad when i was really little. he spoke with a chinese accent and whenever someone dropped the football, he would get really excited a shout. it wasn't until much later that i realized that instead of shouting "PHONE BALL!!" (like the ones we saw at the electronics store) he was shouting "fumble"
I used to believe that in football (soccer) the object of the game was to get the goalkeeper to fall down. Needless to say I wasn't very good at it then!
When I was about 6 , I had a Mary Lou Rhetton gymnastics outfit, and I believed that if I practised hard enough with it on, that somone might see me through the window and let me compete in the olympics someday . I don't why it involved the window but it was very important.
