Anybody watching?

Just watched the Group B Spain/Holland match.

What a cracking game with some beautifully executed goals by Holland.

Who'd have thought the 2010  World Cup winners (Spain) would be so absolutley destroyed in their opening game. 5-1.

I'm afraid I'm in agreement with Paul here....... Zero interest....

Quite strange in that my dad used to play and help manage the local team back in the day and was a huge fan of the sport.

Obviously I didn't inherit the gene.

My involvement will depend on how well Australia goes. I'll pay attention to the TV news segments,
that's about it. And that depends.

It's all over SBS TV at the moment,and Anne & I are a bit sick of the over exposure.


Now if was the cricket world cup, you'd have my undivided attention. It's comming to Australia & NZ
this year, but my home town (Brisbane) gets ( all too often) shafted. Again.

Never have watched it. The game just wasn't popular when I was a kid and I never developed an interest in it.

I enjoyed a kick-about in the park with my mates when I was younger,
but I have no interest either, sorry.

MotoGP is better, but Marquez's brilliance has made it a bit predictable.
I want more battles.

Hi Al,

So sorry Sir, but football = for me, I was force fed it as a kid and have hated it ever since, World Cup time was one of the worse times in my house as it would be taken over by the Traffic department (my Dad was a Traffic Officer), so they'd all pile down to our house to watch it, they'd be at least five of six Police Traffic cars outside the house...

Andy...

I never could get into it, but when a player shows "magical" footwork and gets thru the defense and scores, that's incredible. It just doesn't happen enuf. In the U.S. there was indoor version with more speed and action, but it didn't catch on. All the best to your own faves in the cup.
I heard of and read about the '80s genius player "Socrates," sad that his life after the sport was so short. Alcohol can be a real trap to ex-athletes.

Zero interest here also. Growing up in the 50's in Winnipeg. Manitoba, the beautiful game, never really caught on for me. School play grounds were either muddy, baked hard, wet or frozen. HUH ? I am Canadian but cannot sit and commit to 2 hours to watch a game of HOCKEY, my fave are empty net goals LOL when I see sports highlites after the news. Oh, Oh, too much information..................

Cheers Eh!

Not a lot of interest here. My wife has taken to watching some of the World cup games. I have granddaughters that are active in soccer.

Oh, Pythons' "Socrates." I forgot about that. I'm more of a Long John Silver Impersonator fan myself. Thanx for Sir-Realistic entertainment, Matey!

i agree but then every few years theres someone who dominates it.....before Marquez it was Lorenzo, then Stoner then Rossi............F1 is the same, look at the Schumacher or Vettel years

did you not watch this last weekends Catalunya GP?......thought it was a good race

Large road-racing courses are more of a challenge, and more varied. I agree the ovals can be dull as miles roll by, but then there is a small track like Bristol, where action is constant.
Drag racing can be said to be dull as it's so brief. Each sport has its fans and detractors.
