I'm all about the early morning BBC One Olympic Breakfast coverage this week. There aren't many things capable of dragging me out of bed at 7am each day but sport is, I'm slightly ashamed to admit, one of the few winners. By 8 this morning I was awake, burning promo CDs, reading and replying to emails, eating cereal and excitedly watching a sport I really don't care about. There's something strangely endearing about the prospect of a person you've never heard of competing in a event you think is rubbish at stupid o' clock in the morning. Right now it's some sort of women's archery event (well, that's exactly what it is) and everytime they let go of the arrow it sounds as though the commentator says "Oh God" which is adding even more anticipation and making emailing very difficult. Come on you Brits!
Have you downloaded the BSM Summer Collection digital sampler from yesterday? I hope so. It's a beaut.
Boxing next. Some Irish lad who skips about a lot. They've even got an Irish commentator involved for this one, it's going to get hairy!
Blakfish and Tubelord joined forces with Simon, Andy and Joel, our loyal BSM podcast crew, earlier this week to record the next episode in the series, in the back of a van parked up near a windy Brighton seafront. You wouldn't get that with the BBC, we keep things real around here! Bringing it back to the masses, etc etc. Anyway, the podcast will be up on www.bsmrocks.com and iTunes in a week or two. I for one am excited to hear it. Expect to hear lots of weird things and south London phrases from Tubelord, and lots of out of hand enthusiastic violence from Blakfish.
Irish man is doing well, 2-1 up against Turkey after the first round. I've just started watching series four of 24 where some Turkish people are trying to blow up the world. Come on Ireland, do this one for Jack Bauer! Kiefer's got your back.
