    I would do a recap but I forgot that CBS is incapable of getting Sunday evening shows to start at the regular scheduled time. Maybe this is a Milwaukee thing this time but I'm pretty sure the football game didn't run long. :mad:

    Missed the first 21 minutes, time to adjust the recording options.

    Wouldn't you have missed the last 21 minutes?

    The Amazing Race is always padded an hour for us.

    Can't believe those two chicks basically walked right by Phil and it cost them an elimination.

    Ran behind in Cincinnati as well. With Phil's bike ride across the country airing recently, was a nice connection at the beginning of the race.

    Yes, I missed the last 21 minutes, I meant to say it started 21 minutes late. !rolling

    My guess is the Golf tournament ran late (into overtime, for the sake of continuing the football analogy)...

    Kind of like football but a slightly slower pace.

    Didn't pad it either. My bad.

    Sunday night + CBS = Automatically pad recordings.

    When the girls had trouble with the first task I knew they were in trouble, but then when they got somewhere and were talking about how cute something was instead of "racing" I told my wife they would be gone in the first 3 weeks. Turns out it was a little quicker.

    My wife asked "If they are golfers, how do they ever find a little white ball?"

    After watching the introductions my wife and I decided we would root for the husband & wife from WI (who won last night), the two guys from KY and the two women who are federal agents. We also decided we're rooting against the Big Brother couple and the Jersey shore wanna-be's. Of course as the season goes on our opinions on who we like/dislike may change.

    Sorry, but if they can't figure a way to start on time then why should I be bothered to figure a way to record the whole show?

    I couldn't even tell you what shows they have a Sunday nights because of the start whenever scheduling.

    You mean "fitness"?

    Seriously, is there anyone from New Jersey that's close to normal?

    Actually, quite a few are close to normal, never watched any of those Jersey shows, but the characters are not like anyone i ever knew. :D

    Rooting for the Army guy, the feds, and the border guards.

    ...and if you watch "House", Jersey has an inordinate share of people afflicted with diseases that take entire medical teams to diagnose, only being successful after nearly killing the patient! :)

    My father is from New Jersey, and he's always seemed normal to me, although others may disagree. :D

    The friends from Kentucky were really getting on my nerves in this episode, but I think they were victims of the editing making it seem as if everything they said was along the lines of "Yee-ha, we're country boys!"

    I guess there is something good to say about living on the left coast. Hardly ever have a problem with shows not starting on time. :)
