My Annual Gripe

Know what my annual gripe is? No? Well, let me enlighten you. Its this silly thing call the Formula 1 Grand Prix. I love the sport, I love watching it, especially when it is telecast live. It does not matter that I have to wake up at 2 am in the morning because the race is held in some distant country on the otherside of the world but I will be up watching it. What does channel ten do when it has wrestle it away from channel 9? Delay the telecast! That’s right.

F1 Grand prix is being held right this very moment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but I have to wait til tonight before I can watch it. Stupid. Really really stupid. So I am going to tape it and watch it, without the commercials. I don’t see the point of watching the commercials if it is delayed. I have a good mind to email ITV1 in UK to request them to telecast their broadcast on the internet, just so I can watch it live. Stupid channel 10.

    I actually don’t mind it. At least you know when its going to be on (then again I am a late night guy anyway). If you want 10 to fix something, IMHO, they should piss of the Aussie commentators and take more of the UK commentators. Especaially at the Aussie GP!

    It could have be worst you know. Australias own, Mark Webber, could have gone out in the first 15 laps. Oh, D’OH!!!!
