Ron Pickering ("who?") hosts the boring primary school sports day that was We Are The Champions.

Are England out of the World Cup yet? Can we stop doing sport-related things now?

Ugh.

We've got World Cup fever, in that football makes both Mark and Martyn feel physically unwell. So to celebrate England probably not being out of the World Cup quite yet, I don't know, I haven't checked,
why not sit down with us to watch the adventures of an animated football team as they football about all over the place and score goals and stuff.

"Offside." That's another football thing.

This week, Mark and Martyn watch four people who are superior to them in every conceivable way, and make fun of them in various cruel and undeserved ways. Can you run an obstacle course Martyn? No, you can't. You'd get a note from your Mum to get you out of doing it. Can you land a plane Mark? No? Well never mind because they don't do that game in this episode.

Are the boys going to go back in time and rent some videos from defunct rental store Blockbuster?
Are they going to listen to the glam rock classic "Blockbuster" by the Sweet?
Are they going to learn about the DC comics character Blockbuster?
Are they going to learn about the Marvel comics character Blockbuster?
Are they going to perform flying neckbreakers on each other, a move also known as a Blockbuster?
Are they going to take part in the Anglo-Canadian military operation in the Netherlands during World War 2 known as Operation Blockbuster?

No, they're going to hand jive, make piss jokes and Martyn is going to shout a lot. Sorry.
