    Re: ***Official Olympics Discussion***

    I've been watching a majority of the events online, as it seems like there is so much to watch than what NBC is showing. They keep re-airing highlights from last nights' opening ceremony and others while events are ongoing. Is there some sort of problem with airing an event live?

    Equestrian is dumb.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: ***Official Olympics Discussion***

    I don't know what it is about the Olympics but I'll watch almost any sport, even if it's something I'd never normally watch.

    Having said that, I'm a huge fan of both indoor volleyball and beach volleyball (I've actually met Misty May Treanor) and I'm watching the US indoor team right now against S. Korea. My all-time favorite name for 2012: Destinee Hooker. That is one cool name!


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: ***Official Olympics Discussion***

    I wish that I cared more, but outside of b-ball and some of the sprinting events, I can't really watch for more than 5 min here or there.

    Re: ***Official Olympics Discussion***

    I HATE the tape delay.... I like to watch events live. With all the sources of info available these days, its hard to avoid finding out the outcomes before the event. I know why they do it (primetime ratings), but it still sucks.
