In which Carol tries to explain netball to Don.
I then performed a nice demonstration of pivoting.
The new digital sports channel, in the absence of showing terribly much footy or other mainstream sports is really trying very hard to flog netball as the next! big! exciting! thing!, with adverts boasting “full! contact!”2 and showing chicks falling on the floor.
Frankly, I don’t really think they’re going to make it happen.
Nor is it likely that they going to make Xtreme Paintball: Beyond the Paint happen.
1Thanks to Don for the title.
2isn’t the point of being a non-contact sport, the … ummm … lack of contact?.
