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've watched the football-centric episode of Doctor Who live; I'll ignore the World Cup match.

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.
Not a football fan of either [US or UK] variety, and just watched Doctor Who as live as I can get it online, being in the US and not willing to wait for BBC America!
I'm an American, so I had no choice but to watch the Doctor Who episode later.
I turned over to the match after DWC - I prob wouldn't have watched DWC then if it hadn't been this was the first NuWho ep I've enjoyed for what seems a very long time! Then someone rang me so I missed rest of the match but did get the score which gave me much glee. I think you can deduce from this i wasn;t really very bothered :-)
Didn't watch either of them, but wasn't deliberately ignoring them. Football isn't really my cup of tea, but I do find the extent to which it - or more its popularity - pisses some people off really puzzling.
I have no interest in football whatsoever, didn't even think about it. So naturally I watched Doctor Who, though I didn't pay too much attention to the football scene.
I did actually watch the football - Australian Rules Football, to be precise. ;)
I paid half an eye to the football in the pub, and will watch Who tomorrow or Monday :-)
i don't have a tv, so i watched doctor who after the fact but listened to my friends giving commentary on the match live. P:
I watched the game live but sadly I'm not in the UK so I had to wait for alternatives means of watching it (and I refuse to wait for Space, they're only on The Hungry Planet).
I'm actually quite excited for the World Cup despite Canada's stance on football/soccer (which basically amounts to "LOL! There's no ice, it's not an actual sport") and lack of representation at the WC (no, K'naan's Wavin' Flag does not count... also, sorry about that. Really, I'm truly sorry).
My husband watched the game while I took a nap. I live in the US, so I couldn't watch Who on TV, anyway, so I got a synopsis of the game from Husband while I found the episode online. :)
I watched Doctor Who, didn't watch the football, but rather enjoy the World Cup anyway - mainly because there are often pretty watchable films or documentaries on the channels not showing the football. :)
I was stuck at work for both events :(
We had people coming in constantly at work updating us on the score but I had to wait till today to watch Doctor Who.
I was at a party where most people were watcging the football, while the host and I perched on a ledge trying to make firs.
I watched Dr Who the next day.
