It was all a bit boring. It doesn't make good television. A lot of talking heads plus some pictures of the outside of the Fed building in NY.

It would have been better on the radio. And the newspaper coverage of the 1st anniversary has made better reading.

But, it'll never be as exciting as it was to watch it happen at the time.

The best bits were the footage of Fuld from in-house Lehman vids. He came across as a complete a55hole.

There was an awful lot of 'xxxxxSteins' and "Cohens" about but the Wasps were keeping their heads down.....Lewis playing for Bank of America had a good game though. Elmer Fuld shot one wabbit too many.
