Spring must be coming if people are talking about Eurovision.
Finland’s Eurovision entries – nul points? No problem
While I am totally, totally behind this idea, I am concerned about how well it'll go over:
Four punk rockers with learning disabilities make up the band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, who will represent Finland in the 2015 Eurovision song contest.
It will either be a very high mark for contemporary European society, or a very low one. I can see certain boorish elements ruining this for everyone. We'll see.
But Eurovision, the Ronde van Vlaanderen, Paris-Roubaix -- they're all ramping up in discussion. Which is great. I am sick sick sick of winter, as is everybody else, and I'll grab onto whatever's on the calendar, even if there's no reality backing it.
