Yeah, I agree with the general low quality of coverage. I mean really, a half hour puff piece about some woman meeting her Russian biological parents for the first time? I tuned in to watch sports!
I mostly put it on in cases where I wanted to watch TV but couldn't think of anything specific. They can be fun to watch. But it'd be more fun if they'd show us all the runs and not just the ones with Americas and the ones where the lead changed. They controlled the narrative way too tightly. When I watch these sports I want to see it the same way the people in the crowd see it.
