Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

Angela Powers is atrocious. I know a token woman is all the rage, but she needs binning off.

Terry O'Connor is terrible, praises any Aussie player even when they're poop.
You know I've always been a dreamer

I just saw Angela Powers on Sky, as she looked head on straight into the camera. It turns out that she is a real hot blonde babe.

Are you sure you're not watching Dancing on Ice? It's not Angela Powers that's stood next to Philip Schofield.

If Angela Powers turns you on then Kath Hetherington would blow your mind!

If you think Sky is bad, well I had the misfortune of having to listen to BBC online on a trip back up the M5 and M6.

It got to point where I was waiting for them to make the next blunder which was entertaining in a perverse kind of way
Fat blokes in the mud, flat caps, bogs that drain pi55 directly onto your boots - Now it's all 'Big Ask', 'Arm Wrestle', 'Collision' 'Contact' 'Facials' 'Upper Body Strength' 'Big Units' 'Scooting from Dummy Half' 'Energy Levels' 'Laying the Platform' ‘Middles’ and 'T-R-Y'. Let’s not forget resilience.

Blunders aside, Angela's post match interviews are an absolute atrocity too. She asks the most long winded questions, that could have been asked in about 5 words, and also has a habit of asking the question, answering it herself and then asking the same question again - and it's usually a pretty pointless and bland question that is obviously going to lead to a cliche answer and gives the viewer nothing. Something like;
'That looked like a really tough match, a battle of the forwards, how do you assess the performance on your forwards, you must be really pleased with their effort, their defence was terrific and they certainly set a platform for you in attack, so how do you assess their performance?'
To which the player will awkwardly answer 'Yeah, it was a really tough game, credit to all our lads, our forwards were great, really set a platform for us.'
It's cringeworthy stuff - it's like she's telling them how they need to answer the question and just doesn't give the viewer any insight or better understanding of what they be just seen.

I generally don't bother watching whatever is being served by Sky at the half time break.
