|Oct-04-12|| ||HeMateMe: are we now getting "golf hooligans" in the USA? I kind of like that. If you can yell at a football game, why can't you yell at a golf tournament?
I think it would make viewership perk up a bit.
Anyway, watching golf on TV is about the laziest thing you could possibly do. I mean, you could go out and PLAY golf yourself. It's like watching a pub darts tournament on cable TV.
|Oct-04-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: T.I., "You Ain't Missing Nothing":
|Oct-04-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: I take exception to watching golf on TV as lazy.
It requires an effort to watch four hours of golf on a Sunday afternoon that I personally am not capable of.
|Oct-05-12|| ||HeMateMe: Wayne, you have to get a mini-fridge, with wheels, and get the beer/cheese dip/ weanies, and such within arms reach. Only get up if you have to use the bathroom. Keep the cell phone withing arm's reach.|
Good planning makes for a wonderful afternoon of couch potato pigging out.
How DID people watch TV before we had remotes? Cavemen.
|Oct-05-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Still, that's not watching the game. I can flake out and pig out for four hours but I couldn't pay attention to golf.
Unless it was a dare, or there was some kind of reward.|
|Oct-05-12|| ||HeMateMe: Well, that's why John Daly, the man who closes bars and opens Hooters, is such a fine pitchman. He FORCES you to watch (even if you don't want to see those pants).|
|Oct-05-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: But, to each his own.
I once watched a minor league hockey game in the morning, a rerun of a classic hockey game in the afternoon, a Toronto game at 7:00, and out west for another game at 10:00.
|Oct-05-12|| ||HeMateMe: The NHL has cancelled the first two weeks of the season. It looks like there won't be a hockey season, 2012-13. And...I don't think anyone even knows it. Not good for the game.|
|Oct-05-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: I can only watch some TV. The United States exerts its hegemony, predominance over the rest of the world through media. That's why shows like American Idol, etc. are frightening in a sense. Not the shows themselves, but the thought of so many millions of people buying into it is frightening. Fetal position frightening.|
|Oct-05-12|| ||david p: HeMateMe, even better, keep a few empty plastic cola bottles next to the couch, then you don`t even have to get up to use the toilet!!!|
|Oct-05-12|| ||HeMateMe: You're right, Wayne the world Health Organization put "<Dancing with the stars>" on its list of required activities, in order to get finanical help/foodstufs, etc. from the World Bank. So, we now have <Burka Wars> and <True Confessions From the Rice Paddies>, to tangently cope with this requirement.|
also, we plan to continue to export McDonalds, until the rest of the world is so fat they can't work, and the trade deficit drops. [This one had bipartisan support!]
|Oct-05-12|| ||Sneaky: <How DID people watch TV before we had remotes? Cavemen.> A good question. Here's how it worked. First, understand that TV was not the private affair it is today. The whole family gathered together and watched Happy Days. Now if the person watching TV wanted to switch channels, even for a moment to check a sports score, they would simply say out loud the station number they want. Remember, there were only 13 channels back then, so it was no great memory feat to recall that NBC is channel 8. |
And then, voila! It was the duty of the youngest member of the family to get up and change the dial.
|Oct-05-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: But think that when you're working or out in society that everyone around you is thinking how The Bachelor or Jersey Shore says they should. People should read more classics like Dostoevsky, is what I think.|
|Oct-05-12|| ||diceman: <Wayne Proudlove:People should read more classics like Dostoevsky, is what I think.>|
You ever see how many times the folks on Jersey Shore were arrested?
They know a lot about Crime and Punishment.
|Oct-05-12|| ||diceman: <How DID people watch TV before we had remotes?>|
The shows were better back then, you didnít have to change channels that much.
|Oct-05-12|| ||savagerules: You actually got some exercise each time you manually changed the channel since you usually also had to mess with the rabbit ear antenna in order to get a snowless picture on one of the 4 or 5 stations available.|
