Wow, the Men's 400 Meter Freestyle Relay was a tight race! USA stole it from France at the last second!

Holy shit that 4x100m relay was insane. I cannot believe the US out touched France. The french swimmer was ahead by the smallest of margins going into the lunge -- but the US swimmer literally out lounged him by a finger. That was pretty damn exciting.

Great race indeed. At one stage, there were 4 or 5 teams under the old world record, which was set in the heats. Two world records in the one event.

I think there were 4 or 5 world records during that session.

So right now NBC is talking to George W. Bush and I just spoiled myself, accidently on something I really didn't want to spoil myself with.

FUCK YOU NBC. FUCK YOU TO HELL.

Re: 2008 Olympics!

Holy crap

Even with spoilers, that was the greatest swim race I've ever seen. What a gutsy performence from Lezak and just wow.

Why can't NBC show it live, as in Western Australia (which is two hours behind the east coast here), and they get live coverage there. What else has NBC got on at the moment??

Oh, they show it live, only on the east and central coast. It's ridiculous.

That would absolutely suck ... when virtually everyone else in the world is watching it live.

Just watched the diving. Chinese were awesome.

Good thing I was only paying half attention because I missed being spoiled on it.

Was this the Mens synch diving? How were the Americans (I really only care about Phelps at this point in terms of must see tv)?
