Sporting Events ??
Just back from Paris where Irish hearts were broken by Scotland not quite doing enough to give Ireland the 6 Nations Championship. With a couple of "dodgy" tries, the wrong player being sin binned (Scotland's best player at the time) one could argue that Ireland were a shade unlucky. Unfortunately, back home, with footballers stamping on fans; potential "player of the year" being called a cheat and a Knight of the Realm (Sir Alex Swearengin) giving an unreportable press conference because of the amount of expletives, I was again cheered that my preferred sport is played by "sportsmen".
