    England: 25 / All Blacks: 25

    Twickenham yesterday.

    Yes I know it’s the wrong shaped ball, but it was better than watching paint dry / watching Association Football.

    I haven’t been in Doha for forty years. It was then famous for its spice souk. Apparently it still is. I distinctly remember seeing the « Dwarka » alongside in the port. A floating time warp:

    Zero interest and not just because of the ludicrous venue.

    I could never understand the fan mentality, be it football or a pop group. Mass hysteria, the kind of mentality olso taken advantage of by fundie religions. I guess it's the desire to belong too something bigger. I've never had that either.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    The recent Women's Rugby World Cup was excellent.

    I would rather watch paint dry.

    There are only 3 sports according to E Hemingway.
    Bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing, all else is just a game.
    I think bullfighting is just about blood, dust and mindless cruelty to a dumb animal, Mountain climbing? I get a nosebleed climbing a stepladder, Motor racing? I love motorsport but it's mostly just big business and egos at the top levels.

    Any game that showcases a Schlithole like Qatar is certainly not worth an iota of my time...

    But, very excited about the up coming Ted Lasso series.
    I am a big fan of Ted Lasso myself. Big, big fan.
