I'm actually a huge fan of rugby union. my bf thinks it's just co i like seeing so many men running around in little shorts getting muddy *drools* but that is not the only reason, i do think it is a really exciting sport especially if conditions are bad or it's a very fast game (+ the atmosphere is brilliant at matches). a far as i'm concerned it's a better version of football (which i can take or leave).
There's also golf on telly at the mo + that just seems completely pointless- i liked it when the open was at Royal Birkdale (5 minutes walk from my house) but i really couldn't care who won.
anyway i will stop rambling, just let me know what you think.
Driving round and round and round. So you've never watched a F1 race then? Theres an art to correct an oversteer at 150mph, to overtake at 120 round the outside on the dirty part of the track, to pit stop before you approach backmarkers, to travel around a narrow street circuit averaging above 100mph when a normal car would average about 30mph. And its not fun when the cars crash, I watched Ayrton Senna and roland ratzenberger die in there cars, I didn't find that funny, neither should anyone else.
i realise that some people do find it exciting (both my brothers do), and i do appreciate it takes a lot of skill to go at those speeds and you have to be very physically fit blah blah blah....it just doesn't do anything for me.
I was well impressed with button, started 20th, finnished 8th!
However, I dislike the Barclaycard Premiership - I would rather watch players who have to earn their living, rather than those who could pack up after a match in the Prem (assuming they wouldn't live the lifestyle).
From the others Rugby Union, Rugby League (mainly for the tension of the Video Referee), Motorsports, I follow, but I'm less knowledgable in who the players are.
Basketball has been a passion with me as I have had an administrative role in a basketball club (Mansfield Express), since I was 13 years old, by far the youngest person on the Exec Committee ever!). It was a shame to leave the club in that role at the end of the past season. If I come back in an officiating sense then fair enough, but I anticipate I will become a major part of the new National League setup at University of Sheffield Arrows, should I get up there in September.
Does anyone out there play table tennis? I love the sport, . I've been playing since I was 9. However, table tennis is a sport which is barely ever on terrestrial tv.
I also like playing badminton although watching it is ...zzzzzzzzzz
