    syncro diving

    anyone else really not interested in this 'sport'?

    I have tried... both the male and female divers.... and I find it difficult to appreciate AND wonder what other sports could be playing on primetime.

    No sports have started yet...not quite 9 a.m. in Beijing. I think they're trying to get medal rounds of "lesser" sports some air time before the live stuff starts.

    Re: syncro diving

    I don't get it. This is a sport but baseball and softball are getting dropped? Is it because the U.S. isn't good at it?

    It may be 9am in China... BUT they (NBC) has agreements for certain primetime events to happen in the morning in commie land.....

    otherwise.. why not show 'interesting' events that are taped delayed.

    I think it is REALLY boring... They could show almost anything else and it would be better.

    Re: syncro diving

    Ditto on the anti-diving theme. It's not that exciting and the judging is very random (or slanted towards the Chinese).

    I actually find it kind of interesting. Watching the "no splash" Chinese is impressive.

    Re: syncro diving

    It would be nice if China wasn't 13 hours ahead of us. Living on the west coast would be nice right now. Then we wouldn't have to wait until 9:30 tonight to see the gymnastics meet.

    And you'll never get to see the basketball team in primetime. Just FYI.
