^ It was. The Americans ended up coming 5th. The Russians were 2nd until the last dive, where they had two poor dives, and Germany got the Silver, and the Australians missed out by less than 0.5 points.

Re: 2008 Olympics!

Aussie pin up girl Stephanie Rice won a gold medal in the 400-metre. Gold count the USA struggles because China and Korea lead the medals thanks to wins in Judo and Shooting. I expect Team USA to make a comeback and they already beat China in basketball 101-70,U.S. Women's Basketball Team gets ready for China now

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.
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.
Wow, that's ridiculous...ly stupid. For a moment I thought the reasoning would be so they could show the race during prime time, but the race happened at 8:30 PM west!

Yep. And the worst part was this was a sunday. The olympics pretty much start right when any typical football on Sunday Night and the damn excuse is people want to see the big events in prime time and not at 4 or 5 when they are coming home from work. That's all well and good, but the fact that they aren't giving a choice and saying "fuck you" to the people out here by posting results as they happen on thier website (Spoiling a third of thier audience), or showing the Live Logo when it's not live, and having it tape delayed on a Sunday Night is just wrong on so many levels.

That's my complaint on a thread I started in TV & Media. The amazing thing is that each time they do the Olympics they are surprised that less and less people watch. Then they do exactly the same thing the next time expecting it to change.

I don't like Michael Phelps. He could at least make being so dominant look hard. His endurance is incredible. Really, he pisses me off.

Three golds, a silver and two bronze! America pwns in swimming events!

Too easy. He would probably beat Thorpe and Pieter van den Hoogenband also. His turns are incredible.

I will say one nice thing about NBC. While watching the basketball game yesterday (Which wasn't live, so I couldn't flip to the Nascar race or any other ESPN because they give everything away ) and they brought back the greatest sports theme song ever, John Tesh's NBA on NBC theme. God did that bring back memories.

It'd be nice if MNF would put spoiler warnings for those of us on the West Coast.

Ah, but that is too much work of ESPN. If you don't want to know, than you might as well not watch ESPN for the next two weeks, or visit thier webpage, or yahoos webpage, or any other news source. They all don't care about us or this side of the country.

NBC is using the Brisco County Jr. theme song in their promos. It's sort of making me want to pull out the DVDs...
