No I hadn't heard of the boat race either
I have, but know nothing at all about it, and unless you're a big sailing fan anyway it's unlikely to enthrall. Also, as has already been said, it's a team event, so I've no doubt whatsoever that people will relate more to Andy winning Wimbledon than they will to that.
Bloody press are pissing me off. I do feel better after my rant though. Thanks.
Thank god for MW!
