I was so pumped for the Olympics this year.
I watched the Opening Ceremony and was like, “meh”. Â It felt more like a history lesson, and that storyline of the boy and girl and their cell phone was just silly. Â And the Queen jumping out of Â a plane? Â I was waiting for Leslie Nielsen to sky dive over to her and squirt ketchup in her face.
If I was the producer of that ceremony, I would have had Adelle perform, and had her new boyfriend / baby daddy come out on stage and break up with her in front of the entire world. Â And then she would cry really hard, eat a big turkey leg, and then write a brand new impromptu Â break up song that would be even better than “Someone Like You”.
And why am I looking at Ryan Seacrest on my telly. Â You know what, he’s got plenty of food on his table, he doesn’t really need this gig. Â And does anyone believe that Ryan Seacrest has ever sprinted, jumped, caught any type of ball, or lifted anything in his entire life? Â Why is he interviewing athletes? Â And why is his hair so big?
What is truly ruining the Olympics is that you can not escape the social media updates of what’s happening REAL TIME in London. Â I’ve been dying to watch the men’s gymnastics finals all day on TV, and it’s on later tonight on NBC. but I already know who won because I decided to click on the world wide web.
Why isn’t NBC showing the events LIVE??!?!!?!?
When the World Cup is on TV, they games are televised live at 2:00 in the morning, or whenever the match is being played in real time. Â Why are they not doing this for the Olympics?
I really think NBC messed up big time. Â I am having such a hard time finding when the events are on, and before I even get to see the competition, I already know who won because of Twitter and NYTimes.com
It’s really frustrating. Â So much so that I haven’t even been watching the events as much as I’d like.
And who chose that “London 2012″ font?? Â It looks like someone wrote it with duct tape.
Why am I so cranky today.
