Sports Diet

According to the BBC, "More people in the UK visit art galleries and museums than attend Premier League football matches..." (CLICK). So why does Auntie give us so few programmes about art galleries and museums and a constant diet of boring sports programmes? No sooner does the Athletics World Championships fizzle out than Match Of The Day pops up. The empty seats in the the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow summed up my interest in athletics. The only thing worth seeing was Russian pole vault gold medalist Yelena Isinbayeva leaping into a mascot's arms like a girl and doing celebratory backflips (CLICK). Sport on TV does little more than give couch potatoes something to gawk at while they're slurping their beer and crunching crisps.
