Yes, I hate to admit ever siding with Charlotte Church but on the radio yesterday she moaned about how all the World Cup nonsense is boring and totally un-exciting and I'm afraid I have to agree with her! And you!
my only interest is the world cup sweep that is running at the office. i have invested $10 and drawn ivory coast and my beloved australia. as long as either wins, i'm happy - with a patriotic preference for the socceroos :)
Yeah, a monetary incentive might help (for the World Cup or for Big Brother!). But there's just too much putting me off (not least the football!)
Example: Yesterday afternoon we were driving around the picturesque Peak District, and at one lovely town (New Mills) we were actively put off from driving up to the car park to have a look round, 'cos of a ferral group of drunken football fans spilled out of the pub and across the roundabout. I'm not someone who's easily concerned about such things, but it looked more like a riot than a roundabout (riotabout?)...
