    And then promptly went to commercial, 15 minutes or so later, and switched to another sport. What a tease. Then when they cut back to it, they didn't even let you know where we were in the race, had to notice the clock shot in the background. I knew it was gonna blow, but I didn't think it was going to be that bad.

    Looking forward to some real racing :fingers crossed: coverage tomorrow, the ladies race on USA at :choke: 5 am west coast time.

    I agree! Once again NBC/America has the absolute crappiest (sp) Olympic coverage! I started to watch the race; crash, commercial, commercial, swim, swim, swim, swim, commercial, upclose to the athlete crap, 5 minutes of road race and it's over! It was s 5+ hour friggin' race! I am so glad to live 3 miles from Canada where I receive CBC coverage. They actually cover the events! Yo, NBC, wake the [email protected]#% up already!

    Pardon please, the language is not becoming of me but I am soooo tired of the usual commercial ridden baloney that passes for information.
