I wanted to watch the men’s volleyball bronze medal game (since the
was playing). Smart-me looked for it on line. Site said it started on Sunday at
9:30 am local time. Not-smart-me calculated that to mean 10:30 am EDT (I added
instead of subtracted). After looking all over NBC for the game (they showed
all the other volleyball games, so why not the bronze medal game???), I eventually
found it on US .
I was getting ready to leave for breakfast with Hubby, so smart-me turned on
to set up to record. The game was already in progress. D’oh! (this is when I
realized my time mistake). Okay, not a total loss. US was losing 2 sets to
none, but anything could happen. Smart-me hit RECORD. USA
Now, if I were TRULY smart, I would have adjusted the end time, or recorded the show after. But not-smart-me didn’t do any of that. As the US won set 3, then set 4, I realized my recording time was running out. During the fifth set the recording stopped when the score reached 7-7.
I thought I was so smart. But there is no such thing when it comes to recording live events, huh? It was such a good game, too! I had to look up the score on line to see who won. I would have been happier to have SEEN us win, but I was still happy. Because at the beginning of the volleyball games, I wasn’t sure US would even MAKE the medal round!
Oh wait!! NBC showed the final set later on. I got to watch it. Yay! What a game. Did you see it?
Hey, if you’re on Facebook anytime this week, come on over to Sizzle and Sass and say hi. I’m hosting through the 27th (Saturday). Yeah, I thought this week would go back to normal, but I completely forgot about hosting S&S. At least that won’t be as time-consuming as the Olympics were.
So… Is there something you thought you were smart about only to find out you weren’t?
