Alright! Stop the waterboarding! I did it! I...(sob)watched...(gurgle) the Emmy's!
Don't know why, but I did take in the show. I only got pissed off three or four times, so I guess that's not bad.
But one good thing...I did get to see Margo Martindale's honest and heartfelt reaction to her win that evening.
Another point about her win...as she tried to walk up the ridiculously steep steps leading to the stage, she almost stumbled. Ed O'Neill, ol' Al Bundy himself was up like a shot from his first row seat rushing to her aid...all of the other Brie and Goat cheese crowd sat there making sure their skin was well moisturized.
Ed didn't make all the way to Ms Martindale...one of the presenters (can't remember who) ambled over and gave her a hand.
Oh, and the "I Just Had Sex" musical number, performed in front of an American Flag, and replete with guest vocals by Michael Bolton in a pirate suit definitely spiked my blood pressure.
Even Jon Stewart, during his acceptance speech "thanked" them for giving him a lot of explaining to do to his little girls at home. (although the you'd broadcast would be on time delay on the west coast)
