changing the Mexican guard

From the NYTimes, about Mexico's new president (what, other countries have elections, too?): Mr. Calderón quickly took the oath of office, and Mr. Fox handed over the traditional presidential sash and left the chamber. The entire ceremony lasted four minutes.

TV viewers missed it while getting up for a snack and a drink.
It reminds me of a boxing match I stayed up all night to see.
It all happened during the commercial break.
Now the poor news stations will have to make the most of their color commentators and the replay.
