I admit that I am daggy enough to want to watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics but I want to watch it my way.
I set the TiVo to record it last night so today (right now actually) I can zip through the ads and boring bits. It started at 7.30pm on NBC and was scheduled to go to past midnight – so watching it on TiVo it should only take a couple of hours before I get to the lighting of the flame and the fireworks.
When I got up at 6.30 this morning I found it was still being televised!! So seriously…. did NBC play this "live" at 7.30 (which was not live anyway) and then replay it almost immediately?
As the astro-dweeb said to me this morning, no democratic country would allow their government to spend so much money on fireworks!
