tv shockers

TV has always been a part of my life. I loved watching tv as a kid and I'm still a regular couch potato now. In fact, here I am at home watching The Longest Day ( and old war movie about WW2 invasion of Normandy starring John Wayne ) on DVD while Jan and Sophie are in Glorietta with my in-laws, probably having a good time. Sometimes, we don't notice it, but we get too involved with events on tv that it could sometimes just ruin our day.

Here are some real life examples:

Seeing that it was already late, I opted to stay in the office to watch Survivor Philippines last Friday. It was almost 10 o'clock pm and I didn't notice the time as me and some of my office buds were just hanging around. It would take me a good 20 mins to go home an I wouldn't want to miss the tribal council so I texted Jan that I'll be home as soon as Survivor's over. I wasn't able to see Last Tuesday's and Wednesday's episode, so I didn't know that Marlon (the snake hehe) was wreaking havok amongst the new tribe, seemingly convincing some of the old Naak members to "switch" alliances. I was so surpirsed about this development and because of this, I was really glued to the tube.

When tribal council came, Marlon and, to my delight, Kiko both got some votes and eventually were tied. As the final vote was about to be revealed, the show's credit suddenly appeared, signalint the end of the show.

All I can say was: "P***ng ina! P***ng ina! Syet! Syet! Putol! Syet!!! Aaaaarrggghhhh!!!"

Needles to say, I went home fuming right after the show. When I got home, I asked Jan why the show was cut. She was also surprised. I went to sleep wondering who was voted out, and cursing the show's producers hehe.

The next day, I woke up and turned on the tv, hoping that the Spurs were on BTV or ESPN. There wasn't any live game on BTV so I switched to ESPN. The first thing I saw on the screen was Tony Parker limping back to the dug out.

Simultanously, I said: "oh no . . . oh no . . .OH NO, OH NO, OH NO, OOHHH NOOOO!!!"

Jan: "Bakit"

Bam!: "Oh no! Oh no! Oh No! OOOHHH NOOOOO!!!!!

Jan: Bakit nga?"

Bam: "Natapilok si Parker . . . . Aaaaarrrggghhhh!!!"

Jan: "Wala si Ginobili?"

Bam!: " Injured nga!!! Oh no! Oh no! OOOOHHHH NOOOOO!!!"

I watched the replay and saw that it was a freak accident. He didn't step on anyone's foot. He sprained his ankle while he was driving to the ring. And to think, Parker just came off a 55 point game the game before. Thankfully nothing's broken, but he'll be out for a while and now the Spurs will really need to step up.

Needless to say, I was bummed out the whole day because of this. Now they're down 1-4.


Its a good thing I decided to watch a movie tonight that I've seen lots of times before. I don't think I can handle another tv shocker. Besides, everyone knows the Americans won the invasion of Normandy hehe.

Hala. Talo na naman ang Spurs?

Dapat si Marlon ang matanggal. Maraming galit sa gagong `yun eh.

BAM! said...

talo nanaman e. pero i believe in the saying "never underestimate the heart of a champion" hehe.

Dami nga galit kay marlon pero ok yung ginawa nya na maghasik ng lagim sa tribe para magkagulo sila hehehe
