Excuses… Excuses

with 6 comments

Could someone please explain to me why England is so fucking good at doing badly at sports that we invented and then making pathetic excuses for it. I once read someone comment on the fact that we only talk about the past and I concur! On the rare occasion one of our teams pulls something out of the bag we use this as evidence as some kind of greatness for a number of years. Who are we trying to kid? Ourselves quite clearly. Why don’t we use all this pent up energy on actually practicing a sport before trying it out in a serious match situation. Jack Dee once said that if whinging was an Olympic sport we would get gold everytime! I am certainly not dissing the fact that we keep on trying but for god sake stop hyping it up so much before capitulating back into our usual mediocracy.
