    Looks OK, but I'll stick to petanque on a hot evening with far too much pastis on the go 😛

    fortunately I don't labour under any such delusions

    maybe you're deluded that you're not delusional?

    Actually done Curling Simon?
    It's good fun

    No, but I'm sure it is, but that doesn't make me want to watch someone else doing it on TV…

    You're right, the olympics should be about what you want to watch on TV.

    I would imagine (although a quick google doesn't turn up any figures) that mountain biking doesn't draw as many viewers as (for instance) rowing, but it's still included…

    Isn't that rather subjective? or did you mean what SFB wants to watch?

    How about porn on ice? 😆

    I wouldn't want to watch that either, it's much more fun to do 🙂

    Like watching downhill racing in comparison to actually skiing. Very boring to watch.

    There are very few sports that are worth watching. Whilst I am no footy fan, this sport has the X factor (how cheesey, but true). Now will someone please have a word in the ear of the people deciding the future of the 2012 stadium in East London. Tell them that athletics is commercially a total non-starter, regardless of how passionate Seb Coe is about running!

    The olympics, whether summer or winter games is a waste of tax payers' money. They should wind it up and let commercial sport prevail.

    Perhaps you should write to the BBC and the IOC and let them know what sports you would like to watch?

    Blimey. That's a very depressing view to have, isn't it?

    Forget about tactics, tediousness, cheating, etc and concentrate on Eve who kind of makes it worth watching, I'd say.

    Could be worse – could have cricket in it.

    the difference being that I know instinctively to click the channel change if I accidentally light upon cricket!

    vaguely connected – we used to have 2 curling stones beside our front door in Scotland. They were nicked one night and my old man noticed them gone when he came back in quite late with the dog. Rang the police and they found the poor bstrd about a K up the road trying to carry them both, absolutely rooted. He gave them back and said something along the lines of "Thanks, i'd had enough of trying to drag them along". ****.

    I despise it purely because the team captain is known as the "skip".

    More worrying is the fact that if you have the ladies curling on a TV screen, and you're not looking at it, all you can hear is a female voice yelling;

    "MORE! MORE! HARDER, YES, YES, HARDER! REALLY HARD! YES! MORE! YES! YES!"

    😕

    in other less icy circumstances that would be good!

    I'm not sure I want to know what you watch in bed, CFH.

    Can one of the mods rename this to "simonfbarnes WTF????"

    Well you reminded me it needed tagging, Wacko.

    Curling – it's not a sport and it's a bit s#it (perhaps it should be renamed Curling One Out), but if it gives people something to do, then I've got no problem with other people doing it.

    start your own thread then 🙂
    I'm still thinking about "YES, HARDER! REALLY HARD! YES! MORE!"…
