I spent yesterday afternoon zoning out in front of the TV with the Commonwealth Games on. Now, not being a huge sports fan, the most I’ve ever liked watching them on TV was when I was whacked out on painkillers and very sick.
I thought instead of thinking about how boring the sports were, I should think up ways to make them more interesting.
I was watching some cycling events – I have no idea what the point of these were, but they had one or two people on the bike and, two bikes on the track at a time, they went around in circles for some reason.
Not be (too) rude to people who have dedicated time, blood, sweat and tears to becoming world experts, but it’s just not interesting to me. So how do you make it actually interesting? Well, despite not being a reality TV watcher, you can’t escape the bombardment of ads for shows. So I know that Masterchef exists. Which gave me an idea.
Pancakes. They have to cook them while cycling. But wait, there’s more! They also have to flip them. And the flips are judged and graded on how many flips and how fancy the flips are!
Now THAT is a sport I would watch!
Are there any sports that you find very boring? How would you liven them up?
