The answer is I have an emotional investment in both events.
So rugby first and it's all about Wales. On Sunday they play Fiji on Sunday in a game they should win fairly comfortably but I thought the same thing 4 years ago, right up to the final whistle. But this time Wales seem to have a young team of big, super fit Spartans. I'm feeling lucky and that's when things go wrong.
Undiscovered Voices looms on the horizon. I think the judging takes place this week and I keep imagining the three manuscripts I sent in for it. Sometimes they've already been shredded and recycled. Sometimes in a scruffy pile of manuscripts in the centre of a table, surrounded by the judges arguing, and gesturing wildly as they endlessly smoke and drink.

On the plus side if I do lose I only have to wait 2 years to enter again. If Wales lose on Sunday and get knocked out of the world cup it'll be another 4 long years.
But Wales will probably win and so will I.
Because we are awesome!
