Festival of sport

Are the rest of you as fed up as I am with the Olympics yet? They seem to have been dragging on forever. To make matters worse, we were promised a festival of sport, and all we've had so far is wall-to-wall soccer and tennis.

I'm thinking of asking for my money back.

  1. In a country where Festival would be a typical word for a box of biscuits.....I'm not expecting to be greatly thrilled.

  2. Hats off to Miss Fritton above!

    Myself, I am always sick of the Olympics. It seems like it is always one or the other of them happening - the world never gets a break from these everlasting sports festivals. Didn't they used to happen every 4 years? It seems like the Olympics are going on constantly these days.

  3. You mean Hebden Bridge has not yet seen its Olympics legacy yet?
    Good lord. That fine Yorkshireman William Hague should do something about it.
