Some people might consider this a useless pursuit. Why would anyone watch Synchronised Walking when you have football or rugby. Well I for one am fascinated. I have respect for someone who can dribble past 2 Chelsea defenders, but it doesn’t come close to the admiration I have for these chaps.

Forget Rooney, it’s these lot that should be on £150,000 a week. Look at the way they march by, not even brushing each other. Absurd, maybe, but no more random and bizarre than 11 men chasing after a bit of leather.
