Ian's Hypothetical

This is a follow up to a blog I wrote a while back called The Unreal Bachelor. This is only a short one but just shooting the shit with it. Saying that I'd never get past the first audition. Basically cause I have a good head for radio, a good voice for newspapers and am no captain buff.

 

Say I did audition to be one of the guys on The Bachelorette and actually made it through. I would feel like one of the so called minnow countries at a sports World Cup, who has remarkably qualified for the tournament and is just happy to be there. In all honestly I wouldn't take it seriously because I know I have no chance of winning. To just get a rose once. Would then make be feel like I've sprung an upset one of that sport's superpowers.

 

I suppose sometimes boil-overs happen occasionally and sometimes the so called minnows get through to the knockout stage. In fact back in 2003's Cricket World Cup Kenya made the semi finals (Kenya are far from a cricketing superpower. In fact they didn't even qualify for this year's tournament) All be it they got a forfeit in one of their pool matches. So I'd equate that to one of the other contestants withdrawing or being disqualified.

Better to make it through as a minnow than not at all. Who knows, you could be Greece in 2004!
