Let's go and see some football, they said.
Football? Why would I want to?
It's all the rage, they said. Billions of pounds, millions of viewers, thousands of fans screaming.
I don't think that is for me.
It is, they said; the stadium is the pride of Hull. It's an arena for Tigers, they tear the weak apart.
Sounds a bit Roman.
Okay then, I said. And a good time was had by all.
