The Olympics are over, the Paralympics finish tonight and there are millions of women who usually hate 'sport' in all it's forms now demanding more of this on telly! Anything is better than the dross that fills the screen normally. I watched a documentary on Egypt the other day on the BBC iPlayer, the way I usually watch BBC these days, and was peeved. The man never stood still! Every new scene found him walking up a street, coming up stairs, through a door, at no time did he just stand there and speak! This is a constant feature of such programmes today, movement is all, flash images and a movable presenter, it has become difficult to follow the story as we are made to expect him to jump up and run off before finishing a sentence. It seems to me radio is becoming the only place to follow a documentary today, we can see the image in our mind better there.
Now I am not one to complain as you well know, even though it has taken me until now to get over my exertions at the museum on Friday, and in fact complaining has never been an important part of my life, unlike folks who use the local bus service a lot. No, I prefer to let things slip and lead a quiet life. However I did find myself beginning to get irked by Craig Leveins use of the 4-5-1 system while at home to Serbia on Saturday. Goodness gracious I thought, one innovation from the tried and trusted failures of before, Robert Snodgrass on the right side. At least that was clearly working, that is why he was replaced with the clot Forrest! I note also that Dixon never got an opportunity while at Dundee United but now he plays in England he gets a cap? Black & Templeton on Tuesday I wonder?
Some of my readers may well be interested in this, not for themselves perhaps, just to remind another to exercise more and eat less maybe?
