How unfortunate of the BBC - purveyor of many Shakespearean productions
- to link football (soccer) with Shakespeare.  Football is a spectacle
played by the second most stupid group of people on the planet - watched
by the first.  Great drama it isn't - soporific vulgarity it most
certainly is.

Quote from a very serious top manager straining to be wise: "A game of
football is not over till the final whistle blows".

Not great poetry either.
