You have probably worked out by now that I enjoy watching sport and there has been an absolute feast of sport on the television lately. The fact that the Tour de France and The Ashes are both held in the northern hemisphere means that the televising of the events happens very late at night here in Australia. My bed time is now anywhere from 1.30am onwards.
I am loving the viewing but all my other pursuits have been given a back seat, hence my lack of blogging over the previous week. We have also been away from home as we were visiting relatives for a 60th birthday celebration. Now we are home again and all should be back to normal, in about another five days.
The Tour de France just gets better every year and I never tire of looking at the magnificent scenery. It is great that this year the Australian team of Orica Green Edge is putting on a good show for their followers.
This animated history and explanation has all you need to know about the Tour de France. One of the greatest sporting spectacles in the world. It is ideal for those who are new to watching the event and perhaps don’t understand the tactics involved.
The first test of The Ashes also provided wonderful viewing with a very exciting finish to the match. The second test starts on Thursday so I will be making use of the two screens on the television, now that I know how to do that, thanks to instructions from my son.
