This reminds me of a story ...
In the left corner, weighing in at 4:00 and searching for the first sip from a cup of global proportions, is a new comer, Trusting DanTimis. In the right corner, also weighing in at 4:00 a formidable opponent capable of withstanding unaltered pressure week after week, is the old-time favorite, TiVo. As the contestants get ready, a roar can be heard in the background indicating that this is going to be a long hard battle.
As the bell rings starting round one, DanTimis, trying to get some last minute strategy turns to speak with his trainer. As he turns back to the center of the ring he gets belted by his square nemesis right in the smacker. Although DanTimis thought there would be sufficient time to catch up, he returns just in time to see Teleworld plastered to his forehead. Ding!
During the break between rounds, DanTimis consults the rulebook. How can this be? TiVo is not allowed to use the Teleworld punch without warning. It's simply not allowed! Xaa jumps from the stands and consults with the ref. No, no. It's not allowed! At the same time, while Xaa's not looking a whole slew of TiVo fans jump in the ring and start extolling the virtues of their friend TiVo. How could you not know that TiVo would be using the Teleworld Punch. What were you thinking?
As the bell rings starting round two, out jumps DanTimis, this time prepared for everything. TiVo comes out fighting and vows never to back down saying simply "I must do what I have to do." And with the push of a little red button, TiVo takes the fall. Not even Feng Shui could save him this time.
The only thing anyone can hear as DanTimis walks back to the locker room is "Teleworld or not, my cup will not be denied!"
