That's right... the FDO found a way to spoil my Super Bowl! How you may ask?
See I'm over in the UK which meant kick-off didn't happen until 11:30pm. There was no way I could stay up to about 3:30am to watch the entire game (sue me I get up at 6:30am for work). So I set my Tivo (yes they have them here too) to record the game. I then make sure not to check my email, visit ANY news site or download any of my news or sports related podcasts- but obviously I download as usual my next fix of Contagious.
I'm doing pretty good as the day is rolling along as I had told everyone at my job not to mention ANYTHING about the Super Bowl as they all know I'm a diehard College & NFL fan. I'm listening to music podcasts, NPR from the weekend and saving my Sigler fix for last... And then it happens... the FDO OPENS THE PODCAST REVALING THE WINNER OF THE SUPER BOWL WITH NO WARNING!!!!!!!!
Now was the winner shocking, no if you follow the game it was the "expected" outcome...BUT did this spoil one of the better endings in Super Bowl history? Yes it did... Not ruined, but definitely removed that "how is this going to end" moments! This thanks to the man who says "you can't peak at the end"... well guess what!
If the FDO wasn't such a damn good writer and a REAL football fan I'd probably be REALLY pissed (as I was orignially this morning). But knowing that he actually loves the sport as proven by his devotion to the 2nd worst team in the league (the Lions, we all know the worst team in the league is Oakland-- how can anyone destroy such a historic team, uggh) he can't be blamed for his excitement since htis was actually a great game to watch.
FDO, I forgive the honest mistake, but if you are going to rule the WORLD, remember the world exists on MANY time zones... give a little warning first.
From the snow filled country of England...Cheers!
