Let me complain one more time, taped delay blows ass. If I did not have Live Extra (and the inclination to use it) I would probably be the last one here to know what the hell happened.
First off, some political stuff. Everyone night about 1 in 10 commercials have been Obama ads telling us how lucky we are to have him watching our backs, but just last night I saw my first RNC commercial thanking him for bankrupting our kids. NBC is doing it’s best to keep the riff raff out.
Has there ever been a more secure strangle hold on any Olympic event then what the Chinese have on anything diving related, its incredible.
Congrats to the American lady gymnasts, I don’t usually watch gymnastics, but that show last night was special. And it gives me another opportunity to voice my distaste for all sports where judges judge, I hate it.
Big ups to Micheal Phelps. Some nice stories about first time Olympic gold winners in swimming (Nathan Adrian, OMG, one one hundredth of a second).
I was watching soccer today, sorry CM about NZ getting beat, but the big story was what happened to Spain (bye bye), you can see their poor luck (have you ever seen so many shots on goal hit the cross bar?) and poor sportsmanship here. Soccer needs a rule like basketball, you bump the official, you are gone.
The host nation did some jersey popping today, nice job Bradley Wiggins.
Watched a bit of rowing today and some boxing. With most of these ancillary events, I will catch the medal rounds.
Any big ups I missed? What are you watching?
