I watch a lot of sport on television. I only watch certain sports, and I only watch them live - I don't think I've ever been able to watch a replay of a match or game of which the result was already decided. I feel bound to cheat and look up what can be looked up.

I will waste an extraordinary amount of time, you know. And if it's not watching television, I'll be sitting staring out of the window.
