Say no to Sports Porn

The Olympic games are already beginning to annoy me and they have not even started yet, to be honest I find this modern global pissing contest incredibly dull. What with idiots screaming “racism” when they don’t make the cut and continual “gee ain’t we great ads” on the TV I am really wanting the whole thing to be over. All that I can say is thank God for DVD Box sets  and the PS3! and praise the local Library service for having so many DVDs in their catalogue.

All right I know that there are some real sports tragics out there so I am interested in how much of the Games hype has got you salivating and clearing your schedule so that you can make the most of the eight dedicated pay TV channels devoted to these games. Sorry guys but this song won’t leave my head:

Cheers Comrades

    Should be at least three ‘free to air’ sports channels where ALL sport is consigned, and no sports reports in the news. Then I can chose whether to switch over — unbelievably bloody unlikely!!

    Iain …. the Olympics is only on every 4 years. And it only goes for 2 weeks …. get over it. The point is you don’t have to be a ‘sports tragic’ to get caught up in it and admire the feats of ‘the best of the best’. It is truly a world-uniting event – great for world peace.

    As for the 8 dedicated Pay TV channels they’re all derivatives of Fox Sports so, if you’ve got Foxtel and Fox Sports (and if you don’t have the Fox Sports channel addition then why have Foxtel at all?) you get them at no extra cost. It’s great stuff Iain, get with it if only for the scenery of your beloved England. While I’m at it, what about Le Tour de France? You’d have to be a real stick-in-the-mud not to be into that too.

    Ray
    I know that the Olympics only happen every four years but to say that they only happen for two weeks is not quite true we have had endless promotions for weeks and lots of coverage of preparations ect. As for it being examples of ‘the best of the best’well I have a zero care factor if one muscle bound moron can run or jump further than another by a one hundredth part of a second.

    As for the tour fell free to post on it here if you wish But I see enough loonies in Lycra on our road up the mountain without spending time watching it on TV!

    Oh Iain, there’s still time for you (even at your age) to get into the wonders of top sporting events like Le Tour, the Olympics and the AFL. Don’t bother with soccer though. Come on, it will make you less grumpy.

    Do yourself a favour, Iain, and stay up late one night to watch one of the final 5 stages on this year’s best-ever Le Tour de France. Not tonight (it’s a rest day) but I’d suggest tomorrow night (Wednesday) when they go back into the mountains and up the gruelling Pyrenees. It’s breathtaking scenery even if you’re not into the cycling (although how you wouldn’t find the race riveting is beyond me).

    SBS @ 10 pm. Wednesday.

    But that is way past my bed time Ray!

    Is this the Olympic Games—-or The Terrorist Games?

  9. Richard Ryan says:

    Tony Abbott informs Andrew Bolt “the country needs him” where is your idol now? Iain. The Dark Media Knight is silenced——-the silence is deafening——but for the wailing and lamenting of his blogger supporters. with comments such as, “oh Andrew, oh Andrew, they can’t do this to you” snigger-snigger, the purge is on.

  10. Richard Ryan says:

    Are they two bloggers humping each other on the blog-site—-woof-woof–spot the dog?
