What? You’re not watching the Daytona 500 on Faux?
What kind of ‘murican are you? Traitor!
In other news- yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ll get to it when I do. There’s only a 1 hour break from 6 to 7 pm between the Afternoon and Evening shows today and America’s Cup kept me dinking around this morning from 5 am to 10:30 waiting for them to decide not to start.
Assholes. Don’t they know I need my power nap?
Anyway on NBC main Olympics kicks off today at 1 pm, an hour after the start of the Daytona 500, and I’d have put this up earlier except that like all NASCAR races there will be nothing important happening until the last 5 laps (around 4 or 4:30 pm) except for the wrecks and what kind of sadistic ghoul are you to be watching motor “sports” for the flaming chunks of twisted metal anyway?
It’s kind of the opposite of America’s Cup in that respect. In the name of “parity” (and close racing to make flaming chunks of twisted metal more likely) they even have built in caution periods to allow the slower cars to catch up.
Pfui. If I want to watch real racing it’s figure eight School Buses for me (or Trailers which are almost as much fun).
And I suppose I’ll have plenty of time to nap tonight when we’ll be featuring my least favorite sport of all (yes, even less than NASCAR though it’s hard to imagine)- Figure Skating.
I guess us red blooded ‘muricans can amuse ourselves by pointing and hooting at the French judges.
This afternoon we’ll be watching Men’s Downhill (postponed from yesterday when even Robert Redford wouldn’t have raced), more Colbert Nation sponsored Speed Skating (Women’s 3000m), Biathalon (Men’s 10k), the exciting part of Nordic Combined (the Ski Jumping), and 1 more run of Luge.
They’re saving the last run for the evening show to keep us chromosome damaged ‘muricans from tuning out in a NASCAR tailgating induced stupor. Hopefully there will be plenty of crashes and flaming chunks of twisted metal.
On the aptly named USA Network, Team USA will play their opening game of non-chromosome damaged Hockey against China between 3 and 5:30 pm. While it’s nice to root for your homies I can’t help but hope it’s a little closer than last night’s 18 – 0 blow out.
Umm… just because I’m totally getting my testosterone induced rage on doesn’t mean everyone else has to shut up. It’s still ok to talk about politics and stuff.
Maybe you can find a way to hate on the French.
