Being in Canada, I am not privy to the watching American commercials live. Even though we have ABC, CBS, NBC, the commercials are replaced by Canadian ones. Watching ESPN is tough, so I usually go to a Sports Bar and watch it on Satellite.
Then again, TSN, our Canadian version of ESPN, shows lots of Dog Jumping, Poker, Billiards and Darts. I don’t know about you, but If I’m going to be seen watching pool, darts, and Blackjack, I’d rather be doing it instead.
Even the Superbowl is replaced by Canadian commercials… Yet Another good reason to go to Vegas and watch the SuperBowl on live American TV. Or simply go to the Internet and watch it there.
Eventually, live Internet streaming such as WCSN Universal Sports will be the norm.
NBC is finding more viewers are going to the web rather than television (and their PVRs!) to watch the SNL Saturday Night Live skits of the USA Presidential election.
Jeremy Wariner Training Tips
On YouTube, somebody posted the entire 8 series of the Jeremy Wariner 2008 Training Tips which were part of an AT&T promotion. These videos were shot prior to the Olympics, when Jeremy Wariner was heavily favoured to win the 400 meter Olympic Gold. This is the first time I am seeing these commercials.
So, in case you missed them, like I did, here is the entire 8 part series of Jeremy Wariner’s AT&T’s training tips. I won’t bother with embedding all 8 videos.
UPDATE: Sorry, the video is no longer on YouTube.
