Football, Doctor Who and the World Cup [Jun. 12th, 2010|08:03 pm]

Poll #1577605 Football, Doctor Who and the World Cup

My football-related watching today...

I watched the football-centric episode of Doctor Who live; I'll watch the England/USA World Cup match later.
I watched the England/USA World Cup match live; I'll watch the football-centric episode of Doctor Who later.
I've watched the football-centric episode of Doctor Who live; I'll ignore the World Cup match.
I watched the England/USA World Cup match live; I'll ignore the Doctor Who episode.
I am ignoring both events.


My behaviour is more complicated than that; I'll describe what's going on in the comments.

EDIT: I'm now informed kick-off wasn't until after Doctor Who finished airing, that's what I get for reading match schedules in GMT.

I have an American friend I watch Doctor Who with (on the computer, with an AIM window open beside it for running commentary) and I'm waiting to watch it together. And not even Doctor Who can make me want to watch a football match, sorry.

Yeah... you do know that kick-off was after DW finished, right?

I watched DW live. Including the 'next week' bit that I normally skip. I then switched over to ITV and they obligingly started playing a few moments later.

D'oh, that's what I get for reading match timetables in GMT.

I'm not interested in the World Cup, but I can't watch Who live cuz I don't have access to a live stream.

I don't have a TV here. I'm just glad my bf put the episodes from the past few weeks on DVD, so I can watch them on my computer next week.

I was watching the World Cup match, but had to turn off because of that annoying sound of the horns.

I'd describe it as "I've watched today's Doctor Who episode, and I've been astonishingly tolerant about the fact that it peripherally contains scenes of a football-related nature. The World Cup fills me with contempt."

I do hear that Smith wanted to be a football player first, though. He was very distressed when a back injury put him out of playing professionally.

I'm watching the game right now, but as I live in the US I can't really participate in the squee post until dl links are available because I was up until 2:30/3:00 this morning, and woke up at 9:00 so I was too lazy/tired to try to mess with streaming. :/

I'm waiting for Julie to get home from a hen night before watching Dr Who. I'm not watching the match at all.

I warched Doctors Who and came upstairs afterwards to blog about it. Football is dull and annoying even when the stadium doesn't sound like it's covered in bees.

the ep wasn't football-centric - the Confidential on the other hand was painful

I watched neither, but that's because I was working until 7 and I didn't want to miss the beginning of Doctor Who. I don't like football so I didn't watch that either XD

We have been to AltFiction in Derby. I checked the score in the footie on my mobile on the way home, and we are now watching Dr Who on cable replay.
