    I hate this time of year in the UK, all these bluddy Tennis championships and the Cricket test matches drive you insane with there anal dissection of every move and fluff up, its rare I wish for rain but now's the time to flood the British Isles and hopefully drown players and spectators at one swift downpour, and water me tomatoes at the same time.
    OK rant over, any other sport haters on ST?
    Here's one I could participate in:D

    Me and the missus have zero interest in sports, but I appreciate a lot of people want to watch it. What drives us to distraction though is when a match overruns, but they still have the usual pundits around a desk at the end, making fascinating observations such as: "Ultimately, Newcastle showed they were the better team when it really counted..." until the News is really late. Why can't they just ****, and get the programmes back on schedule?
