Episode 11: A Dribble in The Garden's Pitch?

I am not much of a football fan, I feel it is a muscular game of men and for men. Don't ask me about the exploits of the Falconets in African female football. Yesternite, there was a dribble over the airing the Gardener's Daughter (La Hija del jardinero). The dribble happened right on the Garden's soft ground which was turned into a football pitch. Hear the rest of the story:

As at 6 p.m. in the evening yesterday, my three kids were still watching their SpaceToon cartoon. I was in the kitchen preparing dinner for my hubby who hasn't arrived from work. At 7 p.m. I asked them to change channel to AIT (short for- African Independent Television: Nigeria's largest Private television station), The News was unusually early, so I got the signal that AIT might be showing La Hija del Jardinero (The Gardener's Daughter), by 8 p.m. - an hour earlier than normal time of 9 p.m. At eight O'Clock The European Football match started...ooops! I patiently waited for the end of the match at 10 p.m. After the match, The Gulder Ultimate Search III, was what came on air. This I have watched an hour earlier on Silverbird Television. My fanaticism won't give up. At 11 p.m. it was another latin soap, not so facinating, that was aired till midnite.

Now what happened to episode 11 of this Mexican telenovela? I called my friend on my gsm to enquire what went wrong, she told me it is possible that AIT might have dribbled many of us by airing episode 11 at 6 p.m. She missed it too. I want to believe that AIT was so choked up with paid programs yesternight that, It did not show episode 11 of La hija del Jardinero. Whatever it is we would know the truth tonite. The world is watching us to know if we are better in consistency in airing television soap serials.
