We also like to pretend we're so cool we don't spend all our free time watching TV. The MagicTV would help us achieve this in reality by enabling us to watch only the programs we really want to watch and no more. We could reschedule the network TV broadcasts so that there's no filler. Hell, we might even get to go to bed earlier at night if we made all the good 9:30pm programs start at 8:30pm the next night! That's got be be good for the health! <coff!>
We could also set it to record everything overnight, so we could simultaneously be all intellectual and "no, we don't watch much TV" while also being totally up with the important things in today's fast moving pop culture. For example, every time someone tells us about some obscure but cool TV program we could say "Oh yeah, I have that recorded on my MagicTV" and then we could quickly rush home and check out the basic plot and characters so we wouldn't be caught short again. We would be the most hipster people in our whole street! (Unfortunately, that's not saying a lot.)
And best of all, the MagicTV, if it arrived in time, would help us overcome the unfortunate scheduling of the All Whites games - they're all at 11:30pm or 2:00am, for goodness sake! What's with that? It's some sort of conspiracy. They're clearly afraid that combined but confused psychic wishes of the massed New Zealand viewers of a 6:30am game, when directed at the All-Whites, might compel Ryan Nelson to pick up the ball and run with it, like some latter day Webb-Ellis.
But then, I'll probably destroy any chances of winning by declaring my favourite South American football team to be Argentina (in honesty, based only on a fondness for the colour scheme of their kit and happy memories of the times when Batistuta played for Fiorentina, my favourite Italian team. So arbitrary. Because I started liking Fiorentina because of their outrageously cool purple kit. As you can tell, I'm not exactly the world's most committed sports fan.)
So, yeah, we really really need a MagicTV. And when Brazil inevitably gets into the World Cup Final I solemnly promise to record it and watch it over and over until I'm cured of my unfortunate partiality for Argentina.
