I used to believe that Celtic had an age-old rivalry with Queens Park Rangers.

Imagine my humiliation when, at the age of 20, and pretending to know about football, I had to be informed that there was a Glasgow Rangers. And that Celtic did not have a (frankly weird) thing against the London club QPR.

I used to believe that a pool cue stick was a Q-stick, and that there must be a connection between Q-sticks and Q-tips, perhaps because both were sticks with something white on the end.

I remember when I was younger and saw people wearing sweatshirts from the Superbowl with the number across the shirt in roman numerals, I thought the letters were the size of the shirt. I didn't know what roman numerals were at the time so that made the most sense to me at the time.

I used to think that in basketball, with baskets at both ends of the court, a player could shoot a basket into either goal, and it would count for his team, that neither basket applied specifically to one team. In fact, when I saw some gyms with up to six baskets around the court, I thought a player could score a goal for his team by throwing the ball into any one of the six baskets.

When I was real young, I thought that the angle of the sun had an effect on me, so during soccer i would stare at the sun and try to figure the best position.

whenever we watched football on tv i used to think that the abbreviation "og" [own goal] was some wierd Scandanavian surname and one day i was at the house of this boy i really liked with his mates and football was on and the text said "Tanner og" and i said look he is another of that bloody og clan, they all laughed thinking it was a joke and so
nobody explained it to me until i moved in with my last partner and he never let me live it down - in other words i didnt know og meant own goal until i was - wait for it - 26 years old.
by then i even understood the offside rule!!!!!!!!

When I was around 6 or 7 my family went on a family outing to the bowling alley. My older brother and I developed a habit of crossing the line when throwing the ball. My mother, in an effort to teach us to play the game correctly, told us that little midgets would come out of the gutters and steal us if we kept crossing the line. I imagined in my mind that little oompa loompas would come out and grab me if I crossed the line.

Until I was 12 or 13, I used to believe that if a soccer player got a yellow card or red card, he or she was given that card to take home after the game, just like you take home a medal you win.

I used to believe that the Super Bowl was actually a bowling competition. I was most puzzled as to why it was such a big deal.

My dad used to lay tile. He joked that he would make it to the Olympics and compete in tile-laying, and I thought there really was such an event in the Olympics.

I used to believe that racing cars with the number 100 on the side would always win the race, since it was the biggest number. And the car that had "1" was supposed to come last.
It seems that I missed the whole concept of compeditive racing.

I believed (up until I was married) that the Washington Redskins were an NFL team from Washington state. My husband must have thought I was an idiot when it finally dawned on me that they are from Washington, DC. The sad thing is that I live in West Virginia which isn't too far from DC.

I used to believe that when I got a NEW pair of shoes that I could run faster. Man was I upset when I went to school and the gym teacher tested my running time and said that I was the same. I told her, 'But I got new shoes'. She snickered and told me that the shoes do not make you faster....
