Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goon: melewen: Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goon: MattyBlast: Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goon: Earguy: melewen: Earguy: melewen: shotglasss: LadyBelgara: IMDWalrus: I really hope NBC doesn't cut The Who.

They mentioned The Who was coming back, so we can hope they didn't mention it just to taunt us.

Who?

The band on the stage

Yes, who?

The group playing on stage

So, it's Guess Who, Yes?

No, Who's on the stage!

Look, when you pay the group on stage, who gets the money?

The Band.

No, that's not The Band. The Band is performing later on. Who's on stage.

You tell me!


Who.

DamnYankees: tudorgurl: DamnYankees: Who is this?

Take That. Awesome band.

I've literally never even heard of them.



Globally, they're one of the most successful boybands of all time.

Not your thing I'm sure, but to never have heard of them is a little bit head-in-the-sand bizarre.

tudorgurl: Greta_VanHouten: Sad fact - Gary Barlow and his wife suffered a stillbirth last week, but he's still committed to performing in this ceremony.

Oh goodness...that's so sad!


Very sad, and they almost cancelled. And Robbie isn't there because his wife is expecting their first child (a girl) any time now.

Caeldan: Is NBC not showing the ballet bit?


I was going to say it looks like the Firebird metal ballet bit the dust.

I felt like i should've been shouting "Šuŋgmánitu Tȟaŋka Ob'wačhi!!!" when those were going out....

\what? it's one of my favorite movies
 
2012-08-12 10:57:47 PM
They cut the ballet.... and, what, we're gonna get two minutes of the Who?

2012-08-12 10:58:01 PM
So NBC cut the metal ballet part too.
 
2012-08-12 10:58:02 PM

ThisIsNotSubtle: Okay, the phoenix got a collective 'ooooooh' in my household.


At this point I want to see GODDAMN KIETH MOON RISE FROM THE ASHES!!!!

I am back to Tom Brokaw-WWII-priapism levels of rage.

I heard of them back in '97 when my college roommate (from London) made me listen to their CD 24-7. She was in love with them. Not bad music.

FARK YOU, NBC! FARK YOU LONG AND HARD!!! I HATE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW!
 
2012-08-12 10:59:01 PM
No, NBC. I refuse to watch your shiatty ass show.
 
2012-08-12 10:59:10 PM
Gotta wait an hr for the Who. Not THAT big a fan. Click.
 
2012-08-12 10:59:24 PM
And there, ladies and gentlemen, is the final nail in the DEAR GOD NBC SUCKS coffin. We're going to make you wait an hour, through a horrible comedy with a monkey, and your local news, before showing you the stuff we told you about an hour ago!

Um... Animal Practice apparently. Who won't be on for another hour.
 
2012-08-12 10:59:26 PM
OH WHAT THE SHIAT IS THIS
 
2012-08-12 10:59:28 PM
They cut the 200 Royal Ballet dancers and Darcey Bussell arriving on the burning phoenix?

geom_00: Ok....They should be playing "The Firebird"


Just wait a year to two...

LadyBelgara: geom_00: Ok....They should be playing "The Firebird"

OH WILL YOU TWO GO TO VEGAS ALREADY?!?

30 minutes (commercial-free) Animal Practice, 30 minutes of local news, then the conclusion.
 
2012-08-12 10:59:47 PM
Well, fark. I need to get up in six and a half hours.

I'm out. I'll have to watch the rest online later.

Goddamnit, NBC. :(
 
2012-08-12 10:59:58 PM

Sad King Billy: fark you NBC.


No, this is NBC saying fark YOU to all of us. Assholes.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:03 PM
fark that shiat show, I'm going to be instead
 
2012-08-12 11:00:04 PM
This is such a crock of shiat. NBC needs to have its agreement with the IOC terminated FOREVER.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:10 PM
shiatty animal show the local news and then the end of the ceremony?? FARK YOU NBC!
 
2012-08-12 11:00:17 PM

tlchwi02: themeaningoflifeisnot: Yeah, I visited the Lake Placid Olympic torch last week and it is so simplistic in comparison. And it's sad that the building that it rests on is in such decay.

well, lake placid doesn't have the cash to keep that stuff up. its a tiny town when you get right down to it.

and honestly, montreal is way sadder. i'm not even sure they finished it


The decaying base is maybe 20' x 25', made of corrugated cement block. It wouldnt take more than $25k to fix it up.

And Lake Placid doesn't have the cash? Are you kidding me? That town is friggin rolling in dough. I just dropped a grand there for a 3 day lacrosse tournament. Believe me, Lake Placid can easily afford the upkeep on that little torch.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:22 PM

there their theyre: Nope...animal practice then the rest of the closing ceremony...


Had to switch over to see if that was true. Holy crap.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:25 PM
WHAT. THE. F*CK.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:25 PM

WhyteRaven74: BTW this is the first time the upcoming Paralympics have been mentioned during the closing ceremony of an Olympics.


Speaking of the speeches -- Did all the weird fretting about whether the IOC president was pleased or not pretty much die with Samaranch??
 
2012-08-12 11:00:25 PM
They cut part of the putting out of the flame. There was someone who flew in in a Phoenix costume during the ceremony. Also there is no reason for NBC to leave the last section until after local news.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:32 PM
An hour ago, Costas promised us The Who! I want to reach into my TV strangle the entire NBC team.

The name of the group on stage.

I would rather watch Oprah interview the Kardashians than watch that preview of Animal Practice, NBC. You owe me a set from The Who.
 
2012-08-12 11:00:42 PM

Bed, rather
 
2012-08-12 11:00:45 PM
CTV is showing The Who :-)
 
2012-08-12 11:00:45 PM
Ummmm, they just cut the last performances of the ceremony for ANIMAL PRACTICE??

I can smell the torches lighting as we speak...
