Things that annoy me

I’ve been really unimpressed with Australian free to air broadcaster Channel 7′s coverage of the Winter Olympic Games in Torino.

No live coverage at all! In this day of mass electronic media it’s impossible not to know the results before they’re aired 12 hours later in the evening on Channel 7 taking away all the excitement and anticipation of the event.

And on top of that cheesy, uninteresting commentary certainly hasn’t helped liven up the action.

And finally, not enough snow boarding, skiing, ice hockey or curling… far too much figure skating!

    I agree.

    Hell, Google had better coverage of the curling – they had a curling special edition logo!, it’s about half way down!

    There’s no Ice Dream! That’s what’s failing it! The character Ole was created based on a Curling Coach that Roy and H.G. told us that “he’s seen a lot of curling in his time.”
