What's your second sport?

Post by FactualFrank » Tue Feb 04, 2020 4:59 pm

For the majority of us, football is our first sport, but if you could only watch football plus one other sport for the rest of your days, what would it be?

For me, it would have to be snooker.

Nice sunny day, alcohol flowing, with your back to the cricket but you turn around every now and again to see someone smack some balls.

Try again this summer when The Hundred starts. If you're still struggling wait for The Twenty, The Ten and then The Five. They'll find a version of it that you'll like eventually.

A few years ago we played Octopush in a swimming pool while on holiday in Turkey ... they had all the gear and it was organised by the entertainment team.
Its a bit like hockey but underwater ... it was wicked fun but knackering...

Here is a video of it (not us I hasten to add)

Cricket probably just edges football these days for me. I’ll also watch any boxing match that’s on tv, and have loved it since I was about 6.
