The game was good, once I got into it. That wasn't until the 3rd quarter when the game was nearing its climax. By the time the 4th quarter was done I was wondering if the Saints quarterback had any Scots heritage and could be persuaded to play at No 10 for Scotland, maybe then we might have someone who could dictate some decent play against the French.
As much as I enjoyed the second half. The first half was a struggle. I watched it, but it was struggling to keep my attention. Too much stopping and starting for my liking. 48 minutes of adverts for a game that is supposed to last 60 minutes was just too alien for me. I half suspect that the stoppages in the game are just so that some of the larger players can stock up in extra burgers and fries so that they have a little extra weight in which to hit their opposite number for six, sadly I can't prove this theory because the adverts got in the way of showing that element of the game.
Speaking of adverts.
I get the the need for the adverts, it pays for the game - but when there is 48 minutes of adverts during the game who is going to watch the program that comes after that shows the story behind the adverts? Seriously!
