There’s never been a better excuse for avoiding a bit of writing than watchIng a major football tournament. Attending the competition in perso is obviously the best option, hanging out in bars with other supporters enjoying the atmosphere of the stadia.
But watching Euro 2016 on the telly is almost as nice, even if it means that you have to put up with some pretty banal punditry. Interest in games can be spiced up by the work sweep or a prediction competition.
Sure, England are likely to disappoint, Christiano Ronaldo is bound to be annoying and the Germans will play with frightening efficiency but with an extra round this time there are plenty of games to provide enough distraction from writing for the best part of a month.
