Opening credits - Ski Sunday

We've not done an opening credit for ages have we? In honour of the imminent snow and freezing cold weather, I bring you one of the best sports themes ever: Ski Sunday.

I cannot imagine anything worse than skiing. Paying loads of money to exercise on holiday, being cold, looking like Michelin Man, hairy flights into mountain ranges. No thanks. Also, people* who ski regularly are smug and annoying wittering on about how fantastic it is (usually while nursing a broken limb). Shut. Up.

Now I have that out of my system, there is nothing wrong with watching a little slalom and Ski Sunday was required viewing in my house when I was growing up. We used to sit down with a tray of tea and sandwiches and the most exciting part for me was the theme. For someone non-sporty, I do like a sporty theme: Wimbledon opening, Grandstand, cricket, snooker, Formula One. They are all wonderful. But this is my favourite of them all. It's so majestic.

*Not any of my friends, obviously. You are all lovely.


  1. We were a Ski Sunday family too! Obviously.

  2. Marmite and cucumber on toast and a pot of tea with Ski Sunday. I'd like to go back to that late 70's / early 80's please!

  3. Diff - of course you were!
    Disco - me too, we could watch The Dukes of Hazzard as well while we're there.

  4. Yes! Time for a DoH post methinks (hint hint!). Or have you done that already *dashes off to check previous posts*
