Football Crazy

‘A Malaysian man who sneaked out of bed to watch England’s Euro 2004 opener was assaulted by his wife who was armed with the TV remote control.

The man’s wife also took the smart card from their pay television service to prevent him from watching future live games.

The 46-year-old salesman, identified only as Yap, claimed his wife forced him to go to bed early because he had to take their two children to school the next day.

‘She refused to allow me to watch the game although I promised not oversleep or shun my responsibility of sending the children to school,’ he said.

When his wife woke up she grabbed the remote control and hit him on his head a few times before taking and hiding the smart card.

‘My wife just doesn’t understand my passion for football,’ said Yap.

After the man reported the incident to the public complaints department of the Malaysian Chinese Association, his wife relented and said he could watch soccer.’
