Eurovision and the Champions League
I know that the Eurovision Song Contest is one of the key events of the year for many people in the UK as well as across Europe. Despite my attempts to set aside a whole Saturday night to enjoy the delights of Norwegian pipe music of Belgian ‘funky hip hop hard house,’ it has never quite worked for me. I am bored after about half an hour of spandex and dodgy harmonicas. I try and raise a cheer to the United Kingdom’s entry. The results drone on for over an hour, and the UK comes near the bottom of the board or even last. The United Kingdom has twice won the contest in my lifetime.
