The Vancouver Winter Olympics are over…and I’m in withdrawal, as usual.
It was my first Winter Olympic Games with DVR, which helped. I was able to watch all the coverage that I wanted, when I wanted….which turned out to be pretty much all of it at all hours of the day and night.
It was also the first Winter Olympic Games that competed with “American Idol” for my affections.
No contest there.
I skipped the AI audition episodes completely and watched last week’s performances at the Kodak Theater on hyperspeed.
But even speeding through the program on my DVR, I was able to select this year’s “American Idol”…after just one viewing.
It’s that blond guy who sang “Heaven.”
I checked out americanidol.com — his name is Casey James. Seriously, he was the only memorable contestant of the 24 who sang…and not just because of the judges’ embarrassing display during his performance.
So, there you have it.
The amazing Vancouver Winter Olympics have sadly have ended. And we can just fast-forward “American Idol” to the end.
Next up, the Oscars! (Better set the DVR now…just in case.)
