Is there anything else on?

(Watching the World Cup Final with my daughter and her partner)

We’re watching the World Cup Final.
It’s on the big screen over the fireplace.
My daughter’s partner told me we would watch it.
My daughter looks up from her iPad and says:
“Is there anything else on?”
Her partner keeps watching. Silently.
I look a bit askance,
And mutter something about the final match.
And she says:
“Every so often, Dad has to man up
And pretend to be interested in football.
But I don’t.
So, is there anything else on?”
