Good timing

or why I hate Eastern time

by

I woke up early this morning for the 7am Olympics but I forgot that the broadcasting world is all about the Eastern Time. It's not on until 8am here. An hour of sleep I'll never get back. Right now it's just a bunch of CBC blah-blah-blah. NBC? No signal. That doesn't bode well considering The New York Times reported that seven NBC networks are airing 1,400 hours of reporting and streaming 2,200 hours of real-time events over 25 sports on NBCOlympics.com. Which you can't watch here in Canada so don't bother. Be all CanCon and stick to cbc.ca/olympics.

Andy is here with coffee. What I want to know is where is copychief Neal who was supposed to be here by now? Apparently sleep is more important to N. than the Coast Olympic dream.

In the meantime, enjoy this from the 2002 Olympics, because I have a feeling you won't see this here:
