Sport As A Source of Constant Disappointment

February 1, 2015

Regular readers will know that I am an armchair jock; I enjoy watching a wide of range of sports. Three of my favourites — rugby, cricket, and Grand Slam tennis — were on offer yesterday; and they all managed to end badly for me.

  • First up, my favourite rugby team, the Harlequins, lost to Bath on a final minute penalty kick.
  • Later the England cricket team were demolished by Australia in the final of a One-Day cricket tournament — really demolished.
  • Finally, I stayed up until just after three this morning to watch Andy Murray in the Australian Open final.  By the time he had tied up the match by winning the second set, I was falling over and had to go bed. When I awoke, I discovered that Murray, too, had collapsed from that point, winning only three more games in the last two sets.

A series of disappointing results. Oh well, I guess I’ll keep watching in the hope that life improves.
