Ah, Ryan Lochte, cute but dumb.

I don't find Lochte nearly so attractive anymore. He almost made Phelps sound coherent.

it's like it is his first time talking on tv

It's like they turned him into a frozen, colorless Ziggy Stardust on a bad day.

I love how NBC tried to make this "live", like we missed 13 points "during the commercial break." :rofl:

NBC online showed everything today. If you have cable or satellite, it's all available. In fact, you can watch two events at once.

yeah, but if you don't there is no way to get coverage at all. There is no option to pay for internet coverage, for example. The day long coverage was extremely confusing- we saw the same swimming race three times, it was tough to tell what was happening when.


I was really excited because rowing was listed on the TV guide- but we saw a total of one race (men's 8). The DVR cut out a little bit this morning- so maybe that was when it happened? We put an external hard drive on it, so now we can tape 150 hours before it cuts off, so it won't happen again.

Waiting until 8 (central) to start watching prime time- we don't watch any political commercials, they ruin the Olympics, so I need a buffer.

They did that with the parade of nations last night. Like no. You're not fooling anyone.

I saw a ton of rowing today on NBC Sports.

Cook vs May vs Treanor is an awesome match. Three fantastic players.

So what is the deal with beach volleyball players now wearing more clothes? I gather there was some kind of rule change, but what initiated it?

I get so tired watching them fall into the sand and stand back up all the time.

I was talking about NBC. I don't have access to any other channels or internet, since that is blocked for cable/satellite customers only.

You beach volleyball haterz have clearly never played in the sand. :drama: I think part of the uniform change was the anticipated cooler temps at night. Most of the earlier matches had the women in bikinis. One down for Misty and Karri :cheer2:

Thank God they seem to be switching to men's gymnastics.

He's fine to me as long as he keeps his mouth shut. :P
