Thoughts from an Olympic television junkie…
Thought about going to my local Cineplex to watch the Team Canada-Norway game on the big screen at the theatre. Sally and I even drove over to inquire about prices. $11.45 to watch daily with come-and-go privileges and $34.95 for a full Olympic pass.
I bought this big HDTV for a reason and as fun as it might sound, watching hockey in a theatre with a bunch of other Team Canada fans, it wasn’t worth $23. Especially after it became clear that we might be the only ones in the theatre.
So back home we went, huddled down in front of the big TV, popped our own corn and got ready to yell Go, Canada, Go! (No, not that stupid corporate cheer that the “I Believers” wanted us to yell).
Two things from Tuesday…
1) If pairs and men’s figure skating is any indication, then Will Ferrell’s Blades of Glory was a documentary.
