The Sky is the limit — 8 Comments

  1. I also hate sport. But I don’t subscribe to sky. NTL have a policy of making you afraid to enter their telephone menu system lest you have the Cenobites unleashed upon you and the very skin flayed from your body.

  2. I don’t hate sports, per se, but when a sport becomes a religion, it automatically generates an “ick factor” for me.

    My boss, for example, laments the fact that he can never discuss “the rugger” with his employees because we’re all apparently too heathen (translation: educated) to care about that crap.

    When he /does/ find someone to talk about, he starts spouting names and giving out about decisions and other stuff which makes me glad I’m not into it. He also speaks about economics and politics the same way, so I guess there must be a correlation (or a damned good analogy to be made) between rugby and economics.

    Give me chess, reversi, go or rummy any day – they’re sport enough for me.

    When I’m feeling more energetic, I like a go at juggling, bmx and skateboards. The latter two are a bad idea these days (I’m still in pain after showing the local kids how to do a few skateboardy things yesterday).

  3. Grow Up – Local reception is a bit iffy here in the Mountains, so it’s a choice of Sky or crap pictures. Personally, I think crap pictures would be an improvement, but Herself likes her television. I wouldn’t touch NTL anyway, as I used to work for them. 😉

    Kae – I should rephrase my attitude. I am completely indifferent to sports except when they intrude on my life, which they seem to do a lot. I hate any talk of sport, as it seems to be some kind of religion that I am expected to believe in, and people are aghast when I declare disbelief, as if I am somehow not complete. I enjoy a good game of backgammon though?

  4. Why don’t you just get Free To Air Satellite? At least that way you don’t have to pay for the crap!

  5. I would love to go Free to Air, but what would I do about my Sharon? I would be lost without my six o’clock fix.
