We have Sheldon Mk2 in the office, who seems to think that because I'm British I have an in depth knowledge of.


a. All Doctor Who episodes ( I lost interest in the era of Sea Devils)
b. Cockney rhyming slang??!!


Both of which classify as WGAFF!

I'm with you there. The last time I watched Doctor Who was when Sylvester McCoy was in it. It was the era of cheap set builds and cheesy effects. Now it's gone all over produced and there is a fanaticism that just didn't exist in the 1980s. Makes me a bit uncomfortable sometimes.

Despite getting frequent comments on my accent, pretty much every week, I get very few questions about British pop culture, but then driving a Mustang and big truck, and watching NASCAR are pretty big clues that I am probably not someone who misses my home country much.

I get very occasional comments about British soccer, but they tend to be short conversations, as are the few times I have been asked about Downton Abbey.

Soccer is coming! ..... But hopefully it might eventually displace some NFL coverage.

Sport without engines is pointless.

You obviously don't know where to look.

The other week, I spend almost all day Saturday watching German league football.
