I hate football!

Look, I know there are a lot of people out there that love the “beautiful game” but I’m not one of them.

Don’t get me wrong, I was around in 1966 when England won the world cup. But I was only little and I don’t remember it. Basically I have enjoyed the start of a few tournaments when I was younger, but then there will be a crucial game and the team will miss a penalty or it will go to extra time and we will lose. I hate the tension of waiting, occasionally screaming with joy when we win (or draw) but too many times my blood pressure goes up and I regret watching the match.

I have come to the conclusion that I just cannot watch it. I don’t regret missing the game,  or hearing about it, or not finding out till the week after next what the result was. Or even never finding out at all.

So, I watch skiing, or cycling, or curling, or gymnastics, but not football (soccer) and I can add to that list a deep dislike  of golf, cricket, snooker….oh and darts too!
