A day as a footballer

13 Jun

Football? On my blog?

Well, I never thought the day would come that I would blog about football. But then, I’ve never really played football to begin with… until last Sunday.

My prince and I took part in the Pepsi Longest Dribble record breaking attempt for the Malaysian Book of Records. Our kick off was supposed to be at 6pm at BSC. We were there at about 5.30pm. I was nervous-lah. All sorts of negative thoughts went through my head: “What if I dribble into the next lane?”, “What if a car hits the ball and crashes?”, “What if I faint halfway?”

Anyway, I ignored all those thoughts and waited for the kick-off. Soon, a bus came to pick us up. We were dropped off as various bus stops along the way. I was dropped off in front of Caltex near Lorong Travers. My prince was dropped off further up near the National Museum. So I stood there, waiting for the ball to come. After about 20 minutes, a group of dribblers arrived, followed by a van. There was also a traffic police to escort the whole group. Coolness!

So I dribbled for 500m I think. And by the time I was done, I couldn’t feel my legs. After all, I’m not exactly a very fit person. LOL. We were rewarded with some free Pepsi. And although I don’t drink soft drinks that much, I think Pepsi Twist is quite nice.

Anyway, I had lots of fun.
