And now the sport...

I'm becoming increasingly annoyed with sports reporting in the UK. I woke this morning, and heard on the news 'and now the sport'...

What followed was news about the football premiership, the scottish football, some football transfer speculation, something about arsenal, and then the weather.

Anyone would think that nothing else was played. What about the Rugby Union Guinness Premiership? What about the cricket?[*] In Rugby League, Leads have just been crowned world champions. What about the threat to the Tour de France this year? What about Williams and Rosberg?

Whilst football is a sport, sport is not synonymous with football. If you're going to do football news, fine. But don't prefix it with 'and now the sport....'
