On not watching this World Cup

I haven’t been watching this World Cup.

I’d like to say this was because I objected to the naked corruption which led FIFA to award this tournament to Qatar.

It would be more true to say I didn’t want my life dominated by the media narrative around the World Cup. 

I’ve been following World Cups since the sixties. The clamour drowned out the actual football years ago.

So when the match was on last night I played a few records.

Looking at people’s reactions on social media this morning, which are out of all proportion to the benign chaos which is sport, I don’t regret that decision a bit.
