A witness reported: "I was watching American Football at the beginning of the afternoon (12:42) when we had not one but two small earthquakes in quick succession. The main shock lasted 10-15 seconds. A 5-second minor shock followed on about half a minute later.
"Lunchtime soup pans slid a couple of inches on the gas stove and off their position directly above the burner - but no reports were received of pans plunging to the ground with great loss of nutritional contents. In addition, a computer operator reported a feeling that her gas-lift typing chair was about to collapse.
"The motion of the main shock of this earthquake was a gentle side-to-side movement. A number of other Romiley residents, including survivors of the 1984 earthquake, failed to realize that they had just survived another one."
American football fans were enjoying the Monday night match between the Indianapolis Colts and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Channel 5 early on Tuesday morning when another mild earthquake lasting about five seconds struck at 04:39 hours.
"It rattled the doors of the serving hatch between the kitchen and the living room and made the settee sway a bit," one stop-up American Crunch fan reported.
Question: is there a correlation between earthquakes and American football on the telly?
