First there was the horse racing last November. Then the cricket with a slight distraction by yachts for a few days. Then came the tennis. Horses stopped racing months ago, the tennis last Sunday (although all Australians lost interest as soon as Leyton was eliminated) and now there’s only a couple of meaningless one day games until the flanneled fools can be forgotten.
That just leaves the Grand Prix to go until the footy season.
Already football stories are beginning to appear more frequently and prominently in the sports sections. No longer do you have to do the summer search for one paragraph on a player you’ve probably never heard of. Today there was a whole page of news in The Age and a similar amount in The Herald Sun.
Come on cars, get out and do you thing so we can move on to the one true sport that matters.
