Tuning through the TV channels this evening before going to bed, Mortada’s Mansour appearance on one of Egypt’s most viewed private Tv channels caught my attention. To those of you who are not Egyptians, who are not into football and do not know who Mortada Mansour and what the Zamalek Club is, let me give you a brief.
The Zamalek Club; is one of Egypt’s most popular clubs, specially when it comes to football. According to statistics, the occupy the second place by the number of fans, but nothing very impressive regarding this last season’s performance. They are also known by having a relatively bad management (according to the point of view of many people), and the state of the club (considering it’s the second biggest football club) it’s a little bit better than a junk yard (according to the pictures published in the Al Ahram Sports Magazine sometime in Mid April).
Mortada Mansour; is the current president of the Zamalek club. Not having the brightest of reputations and known for childish acts, he is now believed to be one of the most not popular people in the Egyptian football scene. This is not entirely my opinion regarding this person, but these views can be viewed through Sport Programs, newspapers, website, forums and other blogs as well.
His being of such an unpopular person caught my attention wondering what in the world he is doing on TV. Thinking that he is doing some publicity to get his reputation fixed, I believe that what he said confirms that he is nothing but an idiot and a nutcase as well. Memorizing the act that was on TV, Mortada Mansour was talking about some of the changes that he did in the club. He said that he has built a wall splitting the social part for the sport part of the club, also adding that in order to get into the social part of the club, you (men) should be properly dressed, meaning no shorts and etc… (note that this rule applies to men only according to how he explained it on TV) for the sake of the ladies and girls sitting in the social part of the club are not obliged to see the men’s legs (what’s so interesting in that, just sick in my opinion). That rule applied very well when it applied to the men in the club (how pathetic), until one day a gentleman (wearing the required dress code) came together with a lady who was wearing shorts. The undoubtly narrow minded security workers (like 99% of security workers in Egypt) in the club saw the lady in shorts and said that it’s forbidden for her to get in. The gentleman that was together with that lady asked to meet Mr. Mansour, which he eventually did, and told him that what he was doing is simply an idiotic and ignorant act and rule. Mr. Mansour, thanked the gentleman and told him that he is in charge of the club, and he can take his lady go out of the club and do whatever he wants in his bedroom, and not in the club. Huuhh???
How stupid can a person be to think or do such a thing? Not to mention, how f***ed up can her really be to even say this on Free to Air TV? Even the worse part that will really drive me nuts is how those nutcase Zamalkaweya (Zamalek-ians) even voted for this guy? Shame… a shame indeed…
