    Dont know how many people on here watch The 'Marriage Ref'. Its pretty much a show that showcases couples where either the husband or wife has a habit that the spouse despises and celebrities critique their issue and sides with who they think is right.

    Anyways, there was a indian man/chinese woman couple where the indian husband was obsessed with badminton, just thought id share it with you guys.

    Its at around the 22:30 mark of the show.

    ENJOY!! :)

    The Indian guy is really funny. And Martha Stewart is right. The Chinese girl should let him go and take the opportunity to have some time for herself. Besides, 8 hours a week of badminton playtime is nothing compared to mine.

    There's one thing that is a little bit offensive. The stout bald guy said the following: "If he was playing golf, it would be the same thing, except it wouldn't be as much as gay". :mad:

    From what I can tell, the judges still think badminton as a backyard game, as proven by the black guy.

    Oh! Can anyone tell me the model of the Victor racket the guy showed?

    victor bs 11 on the table and i think it's the bs 9 while he was playing...

    badminton isn't taken very serious here in the USA as well. I was poked fun at both the ER x-ray and the orthopedic clinic when i said i sprained and partial-tear my ligaments while playing BADMINTON! lol!

    even one doc couldn't believe it and said he wanted to make a joke out of it before knowing that it was badminton!...

    to show how hardcore of a baddy maniac he is..

    He (Naveen) was indeed playing in last yr's Boston Open tournament (hmm, i wonder if he reads this forum)..:confused::p
    This issue also reminds me of the same issue in that other thread started by gingerphil76...except Naveen is already married..

    As for those who can't see the link, try to search on youtube. Or if someone can download from hulu site and upload to youtube (which might be deleted for copyright issue) or upload to a file storage site..

    OMG :eek: He is!!! Great find ctjcad. You're a certified human BC search function (ehem, stalker :confused: joke joke :p:D). Good thing you don't know my real name. :rolleyes:

    I live outside the US, but the IP address we use is registered in Texas, that's why I was able to watch. :)

    ..it's quite easy actually. He (Naveen) lives in Taxachusetts, that in itself is already a clue. And there's the annual Boston Open event..so, dink, dink, dink, dink!:cool:
    I don't know your real name, but if the Filipinos were to do one of the Marriage Ref versions in Tagalog/English and you happen to show up (yes, i've seen your pics), then i can try to search for your name in one of the local tourneys..:cool:

    That's quite impossible coz it's too soo to get married yet. Hahaha.

    Tsk tsk tsk. There's an easier method. I'm quite disappointed. Clue: It involves a social networking site. To those who know, hush hush. :D:D

    BTW, I've seen your pics too. :)
