Listener Weighs in on THE SPORTSDOME
On Tuesdays show we had a short discussion about what sport we should cover over the summer, as the Asian Ice Hockey League enjoys its off season. Well that discussion prompted a hilarious email from a listener, which we should you would all enjoy! Take it away DJC!
Soccer? Guys! Spare us, please! Do we have to prove again that the rest of the world is wrong? You might as well commentate on sailboat races "My God, Bryan, they're luffing frantically in a heavy chop! They'll have to come about soon!" ... "Yes, Nigel, it looks as if the French team is going to have to reef down... Another five or six hours of this and it could cost them the race!" Zzzzzz. Almost anything would be better. Personally, I don't mind Japanese baseball, the problem being that it's played to a level comparable to American pro baseball, so who cares even if the teams have great names. (Go Swallows!) How about the Korean American Football League? Chessboxing? (http://weirdnews.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ/Ya&sdn=weirdnews&zu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.chessboxing.com%2F) Some dumb-ass variety of motor racing? Dutch Korfball? (This could be good. Korfball! The only mixed-sex team sport in the world, Mr. Internet says. That's not as good as a mixed-team sex sport, I suppose, but it's close enough for government work.) Here: cover the South Australia Korfball League: Go North Adelaide Roosters!
