A pastor once said that he began to be frazzled by the many interruptions in his day. He fretted he could not get the Lord‘s work done, for all the things that stopped his progression. However, he happily came to the conclusion that the interruptions were the things that got the Lord‘s work done. There were interruptions to the Cup race on Sunday, in the form of pesky rain delays; and, for the fans at home, the commercials. But fans need to remember that is how the broadcast gets done. For those fans who like to know precisely how many ads there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week‘s breakdown.
