entertainment: New TV. Finally. The Olympics are over. And two weeks of it is a bit much. Canada did awesome in the medal count and such, but time to move on. Watched the first episode of Amazing Race 9 which started in Colorado and ended in Brazil. The loud women who scream at everything have to go. No firm favourites, though the two beach jocks who got to the pit stop first yesterday seem OK. and the cute pink girls won't last but are OK too. ;) The San Fran hippies are entertaining, but that will be their downfall. Lots of Southern US couples with perhaps typical cliche male female relationships from that region to come... No one else really stands out - well the older couple. But I sense the same as the couple from Amazing race 7...
Apprentice started too. Synergy and Gold Rush are the teams. Sweating overweight guy is entertaining. And will go soon. The first few cuts don't really have any emotional impact for me as I have not formed any attachments (or disgust?) for the teams or individuals. I thought this one was West Coast based, but the next one is. I am not going to do any analysis of episodes here. I will leave that up to people who have more time on their hands, though I might make the odd comment now and then. Perhaps Nicole will do some regular Amazing Race blogging? :)
But one last thought. By the time the shows wrap up, we will all be able to walk around outside in tee shirts without getting frost bite from the nipply weather. ;) That is something to look forward to. No matter who wins at the end.
