Epic event that you were eagerly anticipating, that is suddenly cancelled, er, "delayed" until a later date - even though many people, perhaps hundreds of thousands, are already on site and waiting for it to happen.
On October 09, 2012, the Red Bull Stratos free fall from the stratosphere with pilot Felix Baumgartner, supremely hyped as "a mission to the edge of space that will try to surpass human limits that have existed for more than 50 years," with live feeds on redbullstratos.com/live and youtube, live feeds watched my *many* the world over, with viewers holding their breath in anticipation of the stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and the supposed record-breaking freefall jump in the attempt for Felix to become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall (an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour), while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement...cancelled, er, "delayed" until the next day, at the *very moment* the launch was supposed to happen.
Randy: "Hey, I wasn't expecting you guys to show up for this important meeting, I thought you would be at your desks watching that Felix Baumgartner thing on the youtube like everybody else..."
Luther: "Oh, no, man...they pulled the plug on that thing, like, last minute."
Nate: "It's like, a total Red Bull Stratos Psych, ovah here."
