With the government advising No Sport, No Pubs, No Restaurants, No Cinema or Theatre (in other words no social gatherings) what to do at the Weekend has never been so challenging. You're even being advise not to go out unless really necessary. 1) You could per chance see how many times you can paint the living room, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen. 2) Watch countless hours of repeats on TV over and over again. 3) Watch every box set ever released over and over again. 4) Watch the highlights of Gateshead this season over and over again. 5) Make love to your partner more than ones a year. 6) Watch every film ever produced in the past century.
Well how's everyone coping are we all enjoying the Football Break ? It's nice to see the BBC are continuing to cover Football by keeping MOTD and Football Focus on the air, along with a selection of FA Cup Quarter Final Classic Specials with Guy Mowbray whilst ITV are keeping racing fans happy by covering the Irish Season. Now that the pubs are shut and most bookies are closed at least it gives us all the opportunity to get our Footie and Racing fix. SKY and BT must be crapping themselves as I know quite a few people at work who have cancelled their Sport Packages with them. The last time football was in this sort of pickle was back in 1963 (from December 1962 until March 1963) that year most games were postponed. When the League resumed it was completed with most teams playing games-on Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday and then Saturday again (don't forget in them days there where 22 Clubs in league 1 (Now the Premier League)and players and management just got on with it. So realistically it should only take 3 to 4 weeks to clear the back-log of fixtures this season. It just means players would have to do what their predecessors did and put in a proper shift and play footie for 6hrs a week instead of the maximum of 3hrs they tend to play now.
With no football either live or on tv at the moment, I looked to my right whilst sitting on the sofa and noticed this woman sitting next to me. She looked quite nice, wonder how long she has been there.
