Qué momento!

  • Congratulations to the U.S. women's Olympic soccer team, who played a hard-fought extra-time match against Brazil today. Because the NBC network is run by total morons who do not understand sport, the match was time-delayed by an hour in the U.S. Central Time Zone. Who does that? Who delays a live sporting event? They wouldn't dare do that with basketball, baseball, or football. They obviously don't understand soccer or soccer viewers at all. A nasty letter to the monkeys in charge of NBC will be issued forthwith.
    Thankfully, Spanish-language network Telemundo had its priorities in order and aired the match live. My Spanish is weak, but I was able to understand the important stuff: "Estados Unidos es campeón Olímpico."
    At key moments in the match, the announcer would shout over and over " Qué momento!" ("What a moment!") That will become my new stock phrase for all things exciting.

  • Which reminds me, in the post below, I forgot the most important Hamm.

    I was upset about the soccer delay too, but hooray for beating Brazil!
