Re: XXIX Olympic games coverage

What is it with Phelps rolling down his suit obscenely low? Methinks Mr. Phelps likes to show off what he's got to the ladies.

^ I'm just watching the diving. His suit's no lower than their swimming trunks. I like.

Re: XXIX Olympic games coverage

I don't know about that. It looks like little Michael is about to make an appearance out of that suit. If the FCC went wild over a millisecond of Janet Jackson's tit, imagine what kind of sanctions Michael Phelp's periscope would bring?

What are you talking about. Michael Phelps is god. He can do no wrong. If his dinkle shows, I say we give him another gold medal.

P.S. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps Michael Phelps.



This is the extent of NBC coverage. They talk about him even when I'm watching gymnastics!

Re: XXIX Olympic games coverage

You know what I really hate about the olympic coverage. Not only is it delayed out here on the west, but they have really spotlighted watching the games online and there is only one problem with that. THEY POST SPOILERS BEFORE IT AIRS. Who was the douchebag that thought this up. You get so much stuff with the olympics this year, and if you live in one of the most major market states, it's pretty much all irrelevent. This is 2008 and the fact that NBC are still living in the dark ages is pathetic.

Keep talking trash, Frenchies. Who's getting smashed now?! LOL!!!! Love it!
That's the reason I watch the Olympics, just for races like that. The fact we beat the trash-talking Frenchies was just icing on the cake.

You are right. In this wired 24/7 world this type of tape-delayed coverage has gone beyond ridiculous to embarrassing.

Psst... me either. (Although I'd rather see my secret boyfriend Ryan Lochte in a similar pose. He may have won the bronze in the 400 IM, but he gets a gold medal in the all-around cuteness competition. What a hunk. )

I feel like I should say something... but then I remember the signature that I haven't changed since the Turin olympics.

Yeah you've had that signature for a while. I was actually thinking about it after watching Fencing this weekend. Jacobson, Ward, and Zagunis are hot too, even though they aren't sisters, unfortunately.

Re: XXIX Olympic games coverage

Tell me if this makes sense to anyone else

-NBC prided itself on showing live coverage of the Swimming and Gymnastics in Prime Time

-Those events ever since the olympics have started doesn't start until after 10:00 so you pretty much lose the defined prime time hour

-They didn't want to show this live coverage to the Western Time Zone because they were afraid that people wouldn't be watching because they are coming home from work

-Now if I do the math correctly, 10:00 in the east means 7:00 out west. That would mean that if the Swimming and Gymnastics were live on all coasts, than it really would be in primetime, and the Gymnastics part wouldn't end at late hours of the night when people go to bed early because they might need to get up early for work in the morning.

-So this means that NBC's so called primetime coverage really isn't prime time, and they are still screwing over millions of people by not showing stuff live during primetime

I just don't get it. I don't get why the ratings would be down starting the swimming at 10:00 at night (or 7:00) and then actually having live primetime coverage. I guess they need to do taped coverage of boring Diving, Beach Vollyball, and stupid stories about Pandas like they are doing tonight.

Oh and NBC is considering showing the Phelps 8th medal race live to everyone on Saturday even though they think it's a tough choice. Thanks a lot you corporate piles of scum.
