After seven songs, the singer finally acknowledged the presence of the crowd with an "oh, hello there"
Anyway, it's probably about time for an introductory post of sorts...well, the first post would have been a more appropriate time. But hey, what can I say? Podaspheria has been good to me these last few days, and I've barely had time to catch my breath for all of the top-notch, award-winning* wisdom I've distilled from the ether and presented thus far to you, dear reader (reader...yeah, sure).
No doubt Sport Is A TV Show will go the way of most such ventures: an enthusiastic beginning driven by a frantic burst of creativity (read: YouTube clips, comedy regional British accents, sarky digs at easy targets and ideas nicked from other people); then, the author gets bored/discovers girls/forgets to pay the broadband bill and the blog eventually becomes 404. But let's not harsh my buzz just yet; we're here, right now, and isn't that what matters?
I plan to tart the site up a bit; nothing major for now: a blogroll here, perhaps, some widgets over there, maybe that bamboo table we saw in the shops at the weekend by the armchair.
I've also commissioned a professional blurb writer to compose a proper About page, which will appear as soon as I can negotiate the fee down a bit (no, a lot).
In its place, for now, this will have to do: my name is Fredorrarci. I'm in my twenties. I come from Ireland. I support Arsenal. I think about sport, and football in particular, more than is reasonable, yet experience it almost totally through the mass media. I've created this blog because I'm not in school anymore, and so can no longer make sarcastic comments about the teacher from the back of the class, and my doctor says I need an outlet.
If you stumble across my little speck of space-dust in the blogosphere**, feel free to leave a comment, or email me at fredorrarci[at]gmail[dot]com. I need the validation. Just remember that if you say anything negative, the psychiatrist's bills are on you, okay?
