Well the footy season is here and even after all the ‘shabang’ and marketing that Sky TV and the likes have spent on telling us it was coming, when it arrived, it never really felt like it had been away.
That’s because football is all about business now. Its trying to be, some say it is being, a 365 days a year sport/business. Who can blame those in charge for doing this, after all there is a lot of money involved and the best way to keep that money coming in is to have consistent football.
Although does this diminish the sport. Watering down the fabric of football. hmmm
Yesterday, glued to the internet updates, radio 5 live and teletext, I found my self drawn into the world of cricket. I am a sports fan, I know my cricket but not to this level. It became apparent, because the Ashes is an infrequent event, it meant more.
This leads me into the athletics. This has been on everyone’s discussion list. Everyone has been talking about it and quite rightly so. Jessica Ennis, Usain Bolt, Phillips Idowu to name but a few and who we will be remember for quite a while, perhaps not as long as Owen, Beckham Rooney et al, but incredible sports stars in their own rights, oh and lets not miss the point we ve been hooked on the events as much as the people involved.
Dental professionals and business owners should consider this. Consistency is the true secret to success, Football, however variety has it rewards.
Next time your doing the same old, same old, perhaps it may be worth trying something a little different and trying something new.
Besides you can always catch up on Match of the Day 2.
