Gadfly and Bon Vivant
A cry for help
I didn't find time to mention this previously, but ...
I'm the kind of viewer that doesn't like watching live broadcasts (or first run competitions if I don't know the outcome) in other words, I like spoilers and enjoy the competition more when I know what's going to happen. Strange but true.
Anyway, since I live in the same time zone as Turin and have Eurosport (why isn't there anything like this in NAmerica?) I set the record button and left the living room and went to the computer. This is where it gets weird: I found following the live reports here was just fine. That is, I'm recording it live in one room but not watching. Instead, I'm following the results as they happen as they're posted here and only watched the tapes the following mornings.
That's right, I followed the Zhang saga by hitting 'refresh' ever minute or so rather than go into the other room and watching (same with all the other finals). Isn't this the sickest thing ever? I think I need an intervention ....
