Charlie Brooker: Why idolise footballers? It’s like living in a world where half of us worship shire horses | Comment is free | The Guardian

"It's like living in a world in which half the population has inexplicably decided to worship shire horses. But as if that wasn't strange enough, they're not content to simply admire the animals' ability to pull brewery wagons: they also want to know what the horses get up to back at the stables. And when Dobbin goes on a hay-eating binge, or tries to mount a donkey, not only will they voraciously read all about it, they'll judge him for it."

  1. CB is unfair. Although I have no interest in football at all, it is a skill like anything else requiring some native ability and much training to do well. Claiming it is a mere matter of strength is just silly.
