Speical Report

Well, just when I thought I couldn't be surprised with how silly Utah's news can be, something like this has to happen:

Sadie and I were sitting on the couch watching Ellen when during the commercial break, a Special Report pops up. Here is the local news station saying that what they were about to say was so important they were disrupting my show. Well folks, the important news was that a soccer stadium will be built here in Utah. I know it could be a big deal but I seriously doubt it was important enough to interrupt Ellen. Especially since the news is going to be on in 25 minutes!

Ah! I missed Steve Martin playing the banjo. I would have much rather watched that than hear Governor Hunstman explain the new soccer stadium. Oh well. I guess I should consider myself lucky to have such calm news.

Yeah, that's too bad about missing Steve Martin. He's good; I heard him play on TV once. I think he'd be a neat person to meet.

Yeah. I think if I could meet one living celebrity, it would be him.

okay...glad someone else is annoyed about all the soccer stadium coverage! Yuck! As if I want to listen to more of how politicians disregard public opinion!

The same exact same thing happened with me too! Except Wade was watching with me and got all excited about the whole soccer situation, so I couldn't verbally express my annoyance! Glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks Ellen is more important!!
