Dear World Cup Haters…..
“Why is there so much football on TV?”
Oh dear. It’s hard isn’t it, when the major TV channels show coverage from a world tournament of a very popular sport, loved by millions of viewers all the world over. It’s probably made Eastenders have to be shown a bit earlier. Maybe you missed it. Is that why you are angry? Do you remember the days when there were only a handful of TV channels? Well now there are hundreds. And there is iPlayer. Isn’t technology great?!
“But we only have one TV in the house!”
Isn’t it great how there are many other pastimes such as reading or going out for a walk.
“But all I want to do is flop down on the sofa”
And you are unable to read flopped on the sofa?
“I’m too tired to read”
Apart from reading people’s comments about football on social media.
“Yes. My timeline is all about football”
Because football is loved by many.
“But I don’t want to read LOADS of comments about football”
You have the whole Internet at your fingertips. It is as infinite as your imagination.
You just want a moan don’t you?
And you are entitled to that. But why not find something important to moan about such as how despite all this technology that you are lucky enough to have, there are so many people too poor to feed themselves.
“But I hate football”
So your other half is relaxing on the sofa, watching the footie and you don’t like it as they are not giving you their full attention.
I give up.
