I’m totally wasting my night catching up on stuff sitting on my TiVo from the past week, instead of being even as slightly productive as I had planned for today. But whatever.
The first 15 minutes of any Amazing Race season are the most confusing (even watching it on a TiVo delay). Many many people, lots of switching back and forth, and little time to pigeonhole them into identities, and more so this year because they’re not listing occupation/relationship (allowing you to make snap judgments), just the family name. It takes some getting used to.
I’m also kinda scanning the MLB scores at the same time, which means I look at the screen, look at the monitor, and look back at the screen to see a completely different person in a different car doing something else. Things can catch you by surprise this way.
After checking to see if the Yankees/O’s game finally finished (wow, O’s actually won, shocking), I look at the TV to see this caption
And I check, and I think to myself “Yep, that seems accurate.”
A moment later, I remember that means Black is their last name.
So so wrong.
