Woman: Hey. Have you been watching any of the World Cup soccer matches?
Man: Well, I was watching until my favorite team was bounced out of the first round of play. I mean, they should have made all the way to the second round, but a whole series of events cost the team the opportunity to prove themselves on the world stage.
Woman: What do you mean?
Man: Well, in the first match, two of their star players were out with nagging injuries, so the rest of the players, unfortunately, just couldn’t keep up with the opposing team.
Woman: Well, that just life. I mean every team is going to have players out with injuries.
Man: Yea, but that’s beside the point. And, and then, in the second game, the refs made some terrible calls, allowing the opposing team to slip by with a victory. I mean, we were robbed on that one. The refs must have been walking in their sleep!
Woman: But, didn’t one of your own players accidentally kick the ball twice into his own goal? I mean that doesn’t sound like a bad call to me.
Man: That’s just beside the POINT!
Man: And finally, our team was ahead in the final watch—I mean they were way out ahead until the other team rallied in the final three minutes of play to squeak out a victory. It was a total embarrassment for our team. Our team was booed. All I can say is that the sun must have been in our players’ eyes . . .
Woman: Uh, wasn’t it a night game?
Man: That’s beside the point, too. You just not understanding anything I’m saying.
Woman: So, who are you rooting for now, seeing that your team has been eliminated?
Man: Ah, I can’t watch any more soccer, so I’ve been following an online chess tournament.
Woman: What?! Now, that has to be the most ridiculous reaction I have ever heard of. So, you’re going to completely boycott the rest of the play just because your team got bounced out of the tournament?
Man: Ah, forget it. You just don’t understand.
