I'm gonna have to be up sooooo early, but.........

I'm still gutted though, because, with it being the first race of the season, i'm gonna watch it live-i dunno, it just seems better that way- so i have to get up at like 1;15am and 2;15am, to watch live qualifying and the race live- you can imagine how i'm gonna look come monday morning then!!
How do you guy's cope when the races are in Europe?

It works most of the times with me. I almost never fall asleep watching television. It only happened when I wanted to watch Suzuka two years ago. I fell asleep watching some stupid commercials, overslept start and woke up just when MS went out and I'm MS fan.

living in Australia and now NZ, apart from the Aussie, Japan and Malaysian GP I have to get up 12.00 or 1-2.am every second Monday morning,......for basically the whole season...I don't have any pity for you having to do it for one race!!
BTW - you feel it more on the Tuesday

I think i mentioned earlier that i have far more sympathy for you than i do for myself, i was just whinging!!;)

No I think i will just stop up and suffer the consequences on TUESDAY!!;)
Jeez, how do you guy's cope?
Posted 07 March 2000 - 02:39
Cope? Getting up early is a way of life. I do it because it is required. I do it because I love F1. I do it because my kids wake me up before 6:30am every day, so when the European races and qualifying are on @ 7:00 or 8:00, I've already had breakfast and my morning java. A great start to the day!

7am is a little early to get up on a Sunday, but it's not too bad, and it kicks off the day great. Plus, by the time it's over, the FOX broadcast is starting (if I want to watch again) and then there's usually a NASCAR race around 1 and CART around 4. If all three series are racing on the same weekend, you're talking about 12 hours of solid racing. It drives my wife nuts, but I love it!

David doesn't whinge, he states facts, and don't you mock it boy, 'cos i read what you wrote about him in the 'Irvine slams DC' thread( I refuse on principle to write Cubehead!!). While i accept that you were probably just trying to highlght what an arse Irvine is, you still defended David!!;)

It's not an early morning it's a late night!
Get the tinnines in and book monday off so you can re-adjust to GMT.
Last race I taped because I couln't see it live live was Spa 98. I'd promised I'd be at the Notting Hill Carnival with some good friends. I had a blinding time, but how gutted was I, when after the pile up, clear up and re start the tape ran out 15 mins before the end. Nooooo!
