Richard Armitage – Mr. Sportypants

One of the things Richard Armitage is very fond of is sports. He likes skiing and seems to have looked into buying a little chalet in the French Alps (or how else would he actually know how much one costs?). In one interview, when talking about extreme sports, the interviewer said something about he wouldn’t fancy a holiday on a river boat, Richard quickly – and emphatically – said “No!”

I could do a whole post about him training until he throws up in preparation for Strike Back, good locations for skiing in the Alps (Chamonix maybe? Isn’t that one they normally show on telly when there’s winter sports on?), he wasn’t keen on swimming when he took the role as Lee in Cold Feet and I’ve mentioned already that he enjoys watching rugby. So he keeps himself active.

However, if there’s a topic I care very little for, it’s sports. And I thought there has been far too few piccys of Himself this week (especially today), so I went looking for something sporty. So I found this:

… And now I’ve completely lost my train of thought.
