July 29, 2012: Reuters reporting lots of open seats at the Olympics. It's starting to look a bit like NASCAR attendance.
July 29, 2012: see first comment. Wow, did I blow it. I can tell time. I'm just dyslexic or something. Sorry. NBC has it right. I was wrong. The part about not missing television is accurate.
Original PostI haven't watched cable television in several weeks now and don't miss it. So I was unaware that the most anticipated Olympic event was not shown live until I saw the headline at the Drudge Report.
That is truly incredible. That would be like delaying the video of landing on the moon in 1969 until prime time. Had this been a weekday, perhaps. But even if this was the first event of the day, at 8:00 a.m. in London, it would have been early afternoon on a Saturday in the United States, a perfect time for showing a live event that everyone was anticipating.
And "they" say Steve Jobs was a control freak.
