And then this giant dung beetle came out.
I did find out one thing about myself and apparently most of my friends, we would rather watch Doctor Who than sit through Adrian Chiles and his cronies do condescending pieces about how South Africans watch telly on bed sheets, or delivering drivel in studio, worthy of the One Show and saying soccer all the time. It's called football mate. Oh and the man can put insomniacs to sleep with his droning on and on and on and on . Much prefer the BBC any day, At least the pundits who regularly annoy us during the year are genuine sport journalists and former players, unlike the collection of light entertainment sofa jockeys over at ITV.
Matt Smith is a former Nottingham Forest footballer. The actor, who is the eleventh actor and youngest ever to take on the role of the Time Lord, played for the reds at Under 12, 13 and 14 level. He also played for Northampton Town Under 11s and 12s and Leicester City Under 15s and 16s and had ambitions to turn fully professional before a back injury forced him out of the game." James Corden wasn't bad for a podgy lad either.Who knows, when Matt hangs up his bow tie, he might join the commentary crew at the BBC.
Well the fun resumes in a few hours, but if I'm honest, I suspect the match of the day and consequently scheduled last up to accommodate North American fans, is Germany v Australia. Perhaps this will be the thus far elusive Holy Grail of early matches, complete with fewer horns, exciting play and a full stadium of pretty frauliens and Oz birds for the cameras to pan over.
