Looking forward to going to bed. American Football has too much stop/start/stop/start. Bit like my old Cortina on a winter morning long, long ago.
Mine was metallic purple. Beat that. :wink:

About as interesting as watching formula one racing, I would rather hammer rusty nails in my legs.

Generally speaking I agree with you but I’ll pass on the latter bit of your post! 😀

Anyone else staying up all night ? - great watch, tactical sport - which unlike football sees no cheating/time wasting.... the clock stops, so there are no feigned injuries and the paying punters get a full game :-)
“No Cheating”? What about the Brady ball deflation thing a couple of years ago ?
Indeed James - but in comparison - there won’t be any time wasting, diving or feigned injuries tonight.... unlike every single National League game in history....
Just updated your quote, there is far more time wasting in the National League than in the Premier League, time wasting increases the further down the levels played. This could easily be rectified by introducing the multi-ball system used throughout Europe where there is much less time wasting.

Now if it were the Aussie Rules final from the MCG would definitely stay up to watch that. No time wasting in that, if your injured they play around you while you receive treatment. Best sport in the world.

To me the NFL, Baseball, Basketball, Snooker and F1 are the top five most boring sports but I can think of others that run them close.

The MK3 Cortina was my very first car and was in Sebring Red (a sort of Orangy red), I had a MK4 which was metallic Burgandy with Black Vinyl Roof and then two MK5's which were company cars, Blue and then Silver. Brilliant cars :D

Had a Mark IV when the "S" plate first came out.

The day I picked it up we drove to the Pyrenees and the first person we saw there said "you don't see many of them around", clearly referring to the one day old registration. TFMAS replied " no, Cortinas are really common.

I quite enjoyed American football when it was shown on Ch4(?) back in the '80's. This was a sort of MOTD highlights show where there was enough to keep me interested. I stayed with it for a couple of years but then the novelty factor soon wore off.

Right

American Super Bowl = The most lengthy "sport" in which watching drying paint would be more entertainment, no wonder a dying spectator sport in America.

First Car = I only had a 1967 Light Blue Vauxhall Viva, standard 1.6 engine. The only good thing about it was tended to breakdown when taking "the ladies" home, thus courtship took place over a go faster leather gear knob .......... make of that what you will :o

First actually car was a Viva the one between the box shape and the more modern 80’s one.
But first proper car and a passion I still have was the Mk1 Escort. It was a 1300 Sport with quarter bumpers but had been modified with a 1600 engine. Loved that car and wished i’d Kept it. One in good nick now fetches around £25,000.
