NBC, for goodness sakes…first you wouldn’t show the Stanley Cup finals in Los Angeles when the Kings were playing….now you CUT AWAY FOR COMMERCIALS during the Sex Pistols portion of the Olympic Opening Ceremony. Couldn’t you have cut away during the portion where the kids run around texting each other!!!!????
Luckily there is video of it. Notice the characters in leather jackets doing the pogo. Call me a wimp, but I get goosebumps seeing The Sex Pistols (and The Jam) getting a nod on the world stage as major cultural icons after having been banned from the airwaves and stages of England. To drive it home further, this was all on display for the Queen and all of the Royal recipients of the nation’s biggest dole cheques.
Proud of you Jonesy.
