Okay, owning no television definitely has its downside.
I just stood outside for three hours, in the rain, without dinner, and without feeling my toes for a while, all so I could watch the opening ceremonies for the Vancouver winter Olympics through the plastic tarp of a bar's patio. I wasn't the only person doing that, at least--there was quite a crowd--although I think I was the only one who stayed the full three hours.
But you know what? It was totally worth it. Yay, Vancouver! (Even though the torch borked.)
