This blog post is tape delayed for this time zone
With today's technology my life on the west coast is known ahead of time. I feel like a mindreader at times.
I know whom the Bachelor chose before I see it on TV (VIENNA? NO, way. Really?!! No way, man. What was he thinking?!! Over Tenley?)
I know who wins the Oscars before I rag on what they are wearing on the red carpet.
I know who win games before I watch them.
I've never seen Saturday Night Live really live.
Good Morning America is old by the time I get up.
My entire life has been filled with a tiny little subtitle of: [tape delayed for this time zone]
Here's another vote to be sent to NBC on the topic of just letting the [tape delayed for this time zone] to die a silent death. Next time you do the Olympics (assuming you get to do the Olympics) just let it happen when it happens. We're big boys and girls now. We time shift in our jobs all the time. Adjusting as needed for conference calls and what not. And if I decide not to get up at some ungodly hour to watch the Russian Olympics live and instead watch them on recorded TV or on the web later, let me. But we shift TV shows to watch them when we want to watch them. So design your next coverage to respect that we know how to time shift but there are times we want stuff live, as it happens.
And speaking of the web, what in the world did you do to your coverage web site? I ended up buying some of the video on iTunes because much of it was gated behind a tie in you had with cable companies and I never could figure out what log in and password I was supposed to have.
If you'll excuse me I have to go read up on what Jay Leno will do in an hour and a half.
