P for Effort

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Pundits predict plentiful production
Punters plonked pointlessly perusing plasma
Perpetual pursuit of prizes
Plodding pace, pedestrian, poor performance
Perceiving paint parch preferable

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Paddy prevents prolonged penalty pain
Palming past his prone self
Pitiless punishment
Purgatory and paradise



Middlesboro v Sheffield United 5th round replay, live on the BBC. It successfully bored me to sleep several times before the cruel twist in the tale. Poor Paddy (but thanks! relief it was all over). I know I should have turned the TV off/over but us football fans are ever hopeful of an upturn aren’t we.

Maybe Cup replays that end 0-0 after 90 minutes should go straight to pens. Watching games like this make me think that the crowd gets less for their money the longer it drags on, not more. Sport or torture?
