Things that remind you of boring Sundays as a kid:   Probably applies more to people who remember late 80s early 90s.

The dread of going to Mass looming over your head
sh*te programmes on tv (last of the Summer Wine for example)
Glenroe for that dreaded feeling of next stop school 9am
All shops being closed
Well the Germans beat them 13-0 and the Czechs beat them 7-0 so that suggests they are tightening things up at the back

Always hated that. Think the hatred I had of Mass lead to me not believing in religion.

My family must have been the only one in the country who didn’t watch Glenroe.

MT USA was decent of a Sunday. The South Bank show always reminded me of school in the morning.

Italian football on channel 4 on Sunday was the best. Then kick a bout with the lads all wanting to be Baggio, Papin, lombardo etc.

I remember a Fiorentina - Juventus game in the pissing rain and it was a cracker. Think it was 3-2 or something. James Richardson was excellent on the Saturday morning show translating and explaining the current sport headlines in the Italian press.
 
Was it the Monday or Tuesday evening round 7pm that RTE did the Italian highlights? 
That's how you fight loneliness,
You laugh at every joke,

Growing up with 3 sisters meant I had to suffer fashion shows on channel 4. Can’t remember the name. It was big at the time. 21 jump street was another.

Glenroe was never on. But Dave Fanning’s show earlier in the morn/afternoon always on telly box.

Used to love it. Lost all interest about 10 years ago. 
The shops being closed on a Sunday is a good thing IMO

Always anticipated Friday more than Sunday even though you had school on a Friday. Psychologically, the weekend being within your grasp felt better than the dread of going back for another 5 days that consumed you all day Sunday. It didn't help that there was much less football on Sunday and you had to go to bed earlier.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.
