Topic Overview

Two men who have never met each other before, might even be from different social classes, might be different races, different species even. What they have in common is sport. They can talk to each other about a recent game or the consequences of an upcoming game, how an England manager is somehow a turnip, how it’s been a good season for something or other and so on and so forth. Etc. And on it goes. And why not? Coverage of sport is top billing stuff. Literally teams of millionaires running around a field kicking, or hitting or carrying a ball can create headlines all around the world, often reducing grown men to tears of anguish, in some cases transforming groups of men to rise up and engage in armed conflict with other groups of men in an orgy of tribal violence. What about those of us that couldn’t give a rat’s ass about what a bunch of rich infants get up to on or off the pitch? Those of us that have better things to do than shout ‘nice one Rooney!’ when we see a diamante encrusted pink Bentley GT or a matt black pointy Ferrari farting down the street? Sport (or sports).
