West Coast Living: Live Television Torture

14 08 2008

Set the stage: Thursday, August 14, 2008. The evening of the women’s olympic all-around. 9:23PM PDT.

Text message from mom: “Judges Suck!”
Response from me: “Nooooooooooooooo! Don’t tell me anything!!! What did they do?”
Response from mom: “Ull see” (pls note the use of teenage txting capabilities – where did she learn that?)

Seriously, this week has been like a modern form of convenience torture. The olympics. They are LIVE!!! On the east coast.

Why is it that I have to wait until 2am to see that the men performed poorly in gymnastics and are, in fact, not going to medal? Why is it that it is 9:23pm when my mom has seen the entire competition live for the ladies all-around, I’m still watching Beach Volleyball? (Don’t get me wrong, I love beach volleyball, it’s just a late start).

Adding insult to injury, Scott keeps opening his web browser which defaults to msnbc.com. Guess what? They spoil the all of the important races, matches, meets, dives, whatnot. So he decides he is done and goes to bed before it even starts. Sigh.
