i always thought the supermarket was like the superbowl
and since my mom would always go to the supermarket on the day of the super bowl it just made me think they were linked together somehow
i even remember drawing a market with a big football on top

When we were kids we used to do football quizzes about the english football league. Every now and again the question 'Who is the only non english team to win the FA Cup? The answer is Cardiff but a mate of mine always always would say Walsall, he thought it was Warsaw in Poland not Walsall near Birmingham.

when i was little i used to watch cricket on tv with my dad.
He used to yell 1,2... watching the ball cross the inner circle...
i always believed that if ball crosses inner circle they score 1 run .......
Later if found the truth that runs are taken by batsman and not by the ball.
that was hilarious when i think of it now....

In a game of tennis, when the umpire announced the score as Deuce, I used to think that he/she was telling the players that it was break time and they were welcome to some "Juice" to drink!

When I was about 5 years old I used to think that the loud speakers you see at marathons (the cone shaped ones) which contain a bottle-shaped object in their centre actually contained the champagne that the winner of the race would receive at the end.

When I was young, my brother, who was 3 years older than me & played baseball, once said that his team got to use the "big diamond" for the next game. For quite some time I imagined this Little League team using a huge, shiny, precious gemstone... and was a little envious.

When I was little, there was always talk something on T.V. about sports or the Book of Records. They would talk about the guy who 'broke the record'. I always pictured people standing outside and smashing LPs on the ground, and never understood why that was so important.

My grandparents really liked watching football games on TV when I was little and I was always amazed at how loud the referees could yell so everyone in the stadium could hear when they made a call on a play. I was kind of disappointed to learn years later it was a wireless mic that broadcast the man's voice over the sound system in the stadium. Heh.

I desperatly wanted to bungee jump as a kid. I never thought that you would need a special rope, so decided my dressing-gown cord would be just as good. I tied it round my bed and jumped. And fell. That taught me!

Only got a couple of bruises!

I loved playing basketball as a kid, and went to lots of camps. They would tell us that probably none of us would ever play in the NBA. In my mind, I always thought I was the one exception in the group. Nope... never made it.

Up until a few months ago I thought Yankee player Hideki Matsui's name was just Mat Sui. My brother makes fun of me all the time now.

When I was young I thought that a "Dude Ranch" was where people kept surfers untill it was warm enough to go in the water again. I also thought that babies came out of people and animals butts and was quite concerned when mine would come out (i was like 6)

I used to believe that parachuting was when a person jumped out of an airplane and a bunch of people were standing at the bottom holding out a parachute and he landed on it and was safe.

My brother would play softball with my sister and me in the yard when we were little (he pitched). When either of us hit the ball, he'd pick it up, run over, and "tag" 2nd base and tell us we had to "stay on first--that was in the rules." I don't remember ever winning a game against him.

when i was younger i thought the Cleveland cavaliers were just called caves and i thought it was caves as in baby cows. i was really confused why you'd name a team after baby cows and the old colors were blue and orange and i wanted to know how you got blue and orange from baby cows.
