I said I wasn't going to write about sports anymore, but this is just too funny or too tragic, depending upon your point of view, not to mention:
Our cable TV service here in La Ceiba is generally pretty good. Two companies offer service, including the US networks and a few movie channels. However, the company that we use, Televicab, has a habit of disappearing stations. Stations just go poof, sometimes for a day, sometimes for months. I have no idea what is up with that. It has nothing to do with the weather. I don't know if no one at the company monitors the stations to make sure they are working or they don't pay their bill or what.
I turned on the television about 7:30 p.m. Sunday night and discovered that all of the US networks were gone. OMG! I checked the internet and it seems that the Super Bowl was still going on at that point, so I don't know if the channels went out during the game or have been out all day. I also don't know if the outage affected all of Televicab's customers or only certain areas.
I'll bet some expatriates in La Ceiba were spitting bullets over that! Somehow I don't think they would have been satisfied to watch the Dr. House marathon instead. My deepest sympathies to those who were deprived.
This kind of reminds me of the time I had 14 people coming for dinner and the electricity AND water were out most of the day.
Life in paradise....expect the unexpected.
