Yikes! Teletubbies and dead air


The teletubbies are filling up the dead air at the fencing championships. What the heck is going on? Ah. nevermind. The French women's fencing champion just ran the green one thru. If only, though. I'm beginning to realize that if CBC Radio had this much dead air, there would be nobody listening. It's been Chinese spectators waving at themselves whenever they come onto the jumbotron for about 15 minutes.Oh, finally. Two Italian women have won, and a Korean. I didn't hear their names because CBC's feed was lagging.Vensalli and Grabassi? I wasn't paying attention. (Maria Valentina Vezzali won gold, Andy says.) Ack. They just welcomed back BeiBei, NiNi, HuanHuan, JingJing, Ying Ying, the five Olympic Teletubbies. Or it's a repeat of before... let's just say, now that they're done, the applause is...lacking.
