    I'm afraid it's that time of year, unfortunatley Wimbledon is going to start. What are you lot going to do to avoid this load of rubbish:mad:, (two channels also) or are you one of the few that take time off work to watch this nonsence and cheer on Andy Murrey!:mad:

    Don't mind watching the sport of tennis, but hate the British commentators and their brown-nosing. Also massively hate Cliff Richard, really hope he is featured at all.

    I think during the tournament my nextdoor neighbour is decorating so i might ask if i can go and supervise her paint whilst it dries. However my grass is starting to grow, sounds very enetrtaining so might spectate that instead

    I wonder if there is a tennis forum somewhere on the net.. that make similar comments prior to brass band contests......

    "I hear there is a brass band contest on next week, best go watch the grass grow/paint dry"

    Not watch the channels its on? Just because you have a TV does not mean you have to watch it! After all I know a lot of people who have instruments at home and don't use them!

    And when Andy Murray goes out early doors there'll be sympathetic headlines with him applauding the crowd after he trudges off not having broken the british hoodoo on wimbledon.

    When it rains, cliff will sing, or they'll replay Henman NOT beating sampras for the millionth time.

    And at the end of it, Federer takes the trophy home.

    There y'go. No need to watch it now. ;)

    Have you noticed when most tennis players are being easily beaten they always end up with an injury excuse.
    Can't abide the game, pray for rain for two weeks solid.

    I've got one word to sum up Wimbledon - Pimms.

    I know but I only have 4 channels and when two channels of wimbledon is on from morning right through till I get back from work it annoys me, it really limits my choice. One channel and interactice is more than enough courage. Most sports on the BBC don't get this more live sport constantly

    Then Wimbledon comes No ones interested in Andy Murrey or Tim Henman the rest of the the year. But for two weeks solid, these fat middle aged women start screaming and cheering when really they stand no chance of winning to begin with.

    Personally, I don't mind wimbledon at all, it's the best fortnight for sleep in the year, apart from this one time I woke up when a womens match was on, all I heard was lots of grunting and screaming. I thought it was the wife stuck in the cupboard again, but, unfortunately not.:biggrin:

    I think you will be far enough away not to hear the outburst. :tongue:
  20. I can't stand tennis but being a red blooded male I will be using the internet at work to stream through the ladies tennis. Have no idea what's going on and who's winning but you don't need to know that to watch short skirts fly up and reveal nice little hot pants. MMM MMM
