If you're going to quote a figure, you should at least compare it to something .

It's like saying I like apples, and the world's population is 6.8 billion. Quote it against the estimate number of sports fans or something to make a valid point (would probably be an estimate off a survey or something).

Anyway I digress, but I have been itching to use that quote!



Ah, I see. Good point. Thanks for pointing that out, man. But I'm totally going to use that quote somewhere when I can, haha.

On another note I agree with Sketchy; I don't understand American Football at all, nor how my dad, along with the rest of the nation, is able to watch it. :/

I like football and I still watch f1 from time to time, but other than that I don't really care about other sports. When I'm switching channels and I come across cricket or some other sport I'm not familiar with I tend to think it's uninteresting, no to say almost pathetic.

What is happening with some people in this thread is the very same thing, except they don't like football or F1.

Really i think maybe this thread, or maybe a different thread now, should just be about liking and enjoying football. Someone can make a thread about how much they hate football/sports if it matters to them that much.

I would brace it all up and make it as strong as possible, plus it should handle better than the big 70s motors.


How much rust did your Montego have, if any? Bangor racing is gooooooood

Not brought one yet, but its the car of choice for my bizarre reasoning . My dad used to go banger racing in the 70s, he used to use Morris Oxfords as they was abundant back then, built like tanks and cheap.

Like this http://www.urban-squirrel.net/jonsbarn/images/morris_oxford_mk6.jpg

I just could not use a proper old car, I would end up restoring it no matter how badly rotten it was

A lot of people mock the old british leylands, they had their problems but they was not that bad at all. I did see the funnyest thing in a long time a month or two ago - a guy in a Maestro 2 litre turbo leaving a boy racer in his saxo for dust

I admire your patriotism, but those Montegos and Maestros really are crap. I went to an airshow recently and they had a bunch of them as a side exhibit - apparently they're classic cars now?!
I'm not surprised they made a few quicker models though. It's like Ford making the legendary Sierra RS Cosworth - standard Sierras were still dreadful (I should know, I learned to drive in one).

Saxos are also crap. Boy racers are funny though - they add massive sound systems, bodykits, lighting, extra-fat exhausts, etc so in the end the car is slower than it was when it left the factory, because of all the added weight.

I still think an old executive type car would be more suitable - if not a Jag, then something like a Mercedes 190E. Or a Volvo even - I remember when there were big Volvo estates in touring car racing
I guess you want front-wheel drive or banger racing?

There is something very primeval about sport which can appeal not only to your higher senses, but also to your base instincts, the animal in you. Personally, I believe anyone who does not get in touch with this side of themselves is missing something. Sport is the one thing in my life in which I can truly let my brain go and live off the actions of somebody else.

And towards Adam, who said 'I think you have to lack imagination to like sports', I would point to the following quote from Albert Camus, when asked whether he preferred the theatre or football he said "Football, without hesitation". (He of Nobel Prize winning fame.) Roald Dahl was an excellent squash player and footballer. Plato was a wrestler in the the ancient Olympics. Dalí was into his football. Pope John Paul was a goalkeeper. Did these men all lack imagination?

I find it a lot easier to bowl people over in football than kick a ball directly into an opponent's face.

So it depends on how skilled and evil you are.

Other things can be competitive bar sports. Scientists are particularly prone to this: Einstein was not renowned for doing sports, Oppenheimer had a severe dislike for anything physical bar sailing - I am sure there are lots more examples from both sides of the coin. Scientists/Academics are competitive about getting that paper out before Fred from University X does, I am competitive by trying to be the best engineer in my peer group

This is besides the point anyway, there is a very large difference between doing sports and watching them. I fail to see how sitting on the sofa is tapping into some base instincts, where as doing something competitive I can fully comprehend. I beat a guy at an arm wrestle, I feel like an awesome dude ready to take on the world. If I watch sports on the TV I just get bored and put a DVD on...
