I’ve always found sport chat a bit intimidating. As much as I enjoy watching it socially (ahem, in the pub), I wouldn’t be able to hold a conversation about football beyond name dropping a few players, nor could I engage in one about tennis if it went further than a fleeting reference to Serena Williams’ last game. But speaking for my fellow fair-weather fans with an appetite for something more, our interest is only going to grow over the next few months. As the world settles in for a summer of incredible sport, now is as good a time as any to get to know it a bit better.
