Well, I guess most students will be traumatised by the letter ‘D’, especially when they see it in their results slip (nowadays, it’s the results screen). Moreover, the O levels results will be released this Thursday and I bet any O levels student will be traumatised if they see a "D" on their grades – doesn’t matter what number is after the "D" since there’s only D7 followed by E8.

For me, I am traumatised in another manner and it has nothing to do with exam results. Seriously, if I get a "D", I might as well just jump off some bridge. Let me give you some clues. It’d got something to do with "Big D", "Strong D" and "D-up". If you had been following the Slingers’ games, you’d know what I mean.

Yes, I can’t stand the commentator.

Every time the Slingers had to go on the defence, the commentator will switch to his bassy low voice and say one of the following:

  • Deeeeeeeee-fenceeeeeeee…..
  • Let’s give them a Biggggggg DDDDDDDDDDDDD….
  • Let’s give a Stroooooooooong DDDDDDDDDDDDDD….
  • Let’s D-up!

And if D stands for Defence… then why shouldn’t O stand for Offence?

  • Offfffffff-fenceeeeeeee…..
  • Let’s give them a Biggggggg OOOOOOOOOOOOO….
  • Let’s give a Stroooooooooong OOOOOOOOOOOOOO….
  • Let’s O-up!

Seriously, I think I’m going to be so traumatised by it that I can’t see another "D" for quite a while. However, at least I didn’t have to sit next to him on the way back form the stadium. I wonder if Nadnut feels the same. =P

    hmm..think in the NBA, they put up the words D-Fence on the huge scoreboard monitor thingy on the top. So this way, the fans know when to shout Defence and the commentator can erm..not speak..keke..

    we should do that in our games eh? 😉
