Reminds me of a funny blonde moment I had recently.
When I was watching the documentary series on OJ ‘The run of his life’ the misses was explaining to me that Rob Kardashian was the father of the reality TV family we have everywhere now. So i says to myself ‘Jaysis thats mad isnt it, and to think he’s a woman now an all. How things have changed for that family’
Needless to say Im still getting a slagging for it.
Darts? The pantomime & the hype are a big part of it. Darts has the fun/costumes etc side to it. The heros in darts have always been somewhat anti-heros, superfluous even, given that it’s almost impossible to see what’s going on, it’s not an action sport, and most of the audience are either pissed and/or talking & having the crack throughout. But it does tend to last a while, though there are plenty of one-sided contests.
With boxing, it’s now long ago that it became more about the event, though people are still seriously taking a pounding, at times. In MMA they take more of a pounding. But it’s a bit hard to understand how a fighter at that level can be out of the fight after a matter of seconds, any top level fighter should be smart enough and sharp enough to at least defend him/herself for a couple of rounds, even when outmatched. And they really shouldn’t be all that outmatched, given how much time and effort go into arranging fights.
What, no Hurricane Higgins? Not only a supreme athlete but also a jockey to boot!
I’ve often wondered why Germany hasn’t been better at rugby, the physicality of it should suit them and yet Italians seem to like it more. Is it a class thing then? Germany doesn’t have the class divisions in the same extent that countries like France, Italy, UK & Ireland have.
Interestingly one of the biggest sports in Germany these days is Team Handball, which along with Ice Hockey is nearly as popular as soccer over there. Alot of the soccer fans I’ve met at Bundesliga games follow and/or participate in Field Handball in the better months of the year.
