Our neighbors have sport on so loud the back wall of our living room is trembling. I donâ€™t know which sport, I donâ€™t care which sport, but it is definitely sport. Iâ€™d recognize those imbecilic roars anywhere.
The mystery of why people watch sport has always fascinated me. I must have spent hundreds of hours mulling it over and I canâ€™t say Iâ€™m any closer to a real understanding.
Last week I suddenly remembered that I do like watching one sport and I always have.
And why do I like snooker when every single other sport in the world bores me to tears?
I donâ€™t know.
Perhaps itâ€™s because the crowd donâ€™t howl like gorillas with nettles up their bums.
