So, what are we blokes supposed to do now - sit around and start talking about our feelings? It is an appalling vista, this world without sport.

Because basically the whole darn shooting match was set up to help fellas skip the dreaded emotional stuff, which we're about as good at as Peter Kay was at high diving in that old beer commercial.

It serves no evolutionary purpose that we can see at all. We just ended up with it, sitting there in our brains for no apparent reason, like the nipples on our chest.
