America’s Second Place

At the risk of being branded unpatriotic, I bring you this bit of humiliating news.

While the amount of time Americans spent sitting in front of the tube rose by 3 minutes last year (clocking in at a cool 4 hours and 28 minutes), we only came in second place.

The Japanese broke 5 hours.

We’re bragging that we finished the Tour de France and the Japanese are Lance Armstrong.

I can only hope this lapse is about TiVo. Maybe we are watching more television, but watching it faster.

Either way, there’s no time to rest.

Concentration is important!
