It's the end of an event which was celebrated by people all over America. The "let's criticize a major American company for their sub-par performance" weeks have passed, and we can all go back to hating AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or whatever rage du jour is fashionable.
I'm not defending NBC. I have almost no first-hand knowledge of their broadcast of these Olympic games. See, I didn't watch anything but a couple soccer matches while I was passing through bars and flying. When the broadcast occurred versus when the games happened was entirely irrelevant to me. So here's my complaint: where the hell is the damn online content?
We're in an age where it is easy to distribute content. We're no longer tied to a limited number of ways to broadcast a show to the public. With advertisers paying top-dollar to be official sponsors, how about we both get their name out easier, as well as allow people to watch events whenever they feel like it. People can watch what they want, McDonalds can shove their commercials down our throats in new and convenient ways, and then people get to stop bitching.
More importantly, we can all arrange our schedule to enjoy things that matter, like pub quizzes. Never delayed, always exciting. And this quiz was no different, with a trio of contenders for the top-prize who have never held that distinction.
I get older, they stay the same age just happened to be in the bar, and quickly got in to the quizzing spirit. They bombed round one, but beat everyone in the bar for round two. They managed to hang in second through most of the night. Avian Avengers pulled off an early lead, only to be knocked to third in round eight.
It was I accidentally Freudian slipped my mother the penis who came out on top with consistent scores every round. It was their first time with the win. Just behind them, Thanks NBC! We'll miss watching things on delay on delay.
See you next time!
