Hello to all the sport averse!

Well it doesn’t seem to matter what time I stumble out of bed and blearily plonk myself in front of the TV to watch ‘breakfast’ the result is always the same.

The sport comes on, without fail. If I’m lucky I might get a bit of news, at least 10 seconds of it and then I’ll be subjected to what seems like 15 minutes of sport news. Critics would probably say it’s not 15 minutes at all.
Really? Ok 14 minutes 59 seconds then.

Whatever it is, it goes on forever and ever and ever … well you get the picture.

It doesn’t matter a jot WHEN I turn on the tv. The sport will be there, lurking round the corner waiting to grab an unfair portion of the programmes content.

Anyway this blog will be about all the other things that can comfortably fill your life without ever going near the dreaded five letter word.

I may mention S**** in the context of a warning. Either to forewarn of some impending sport storm that’s coming our way to give people a chance to head for the hills. Or to lam-bast the subject in general and the way people seem to think it’s so wonderfully important.

If sport ever does come into this blog for any other reason than the above then please accept my apologies.  The occurrence is purely accidental.

  1. I made a comment to this posting about your general crapness at all things sporty (which is why you hate it really), but it seems to have disappeared. Mugged in cyberspace probably or spirited away by your very own website stasi. Anyway, the point I’ll make here is to remind you of that 15 minutes when you supported Leeds United (it was about the same time they were winning trophies and trashing everybody else’s stadium). You bought a Leeds Utd subbuteo football team circa 1973 but it disappeared circa 1993. Anyway, I know I probably shouldn’t mention this, but if you’d kept it, it would be worth a small fortune by now because the later subbuteo teams are rubbish, quality wise, and professional subbuteo players (yes, there really is such a thing)prize the old fashioned teams very highly. Same as with my old Star Wars figures, I guess. You never know how much money you were sitting on until it’s too late!
