By the time this match is over, NBC will have devoted a full hour of tonight's broadcast on beach volleyball, or exactly 1/4 of the very limited time allotted to Prime Time coverage (more, if they do the requisite moronic post-event interview(s).
According to Zap2itTV's program description, tonight is supposed to feature this, Track and Field, and Gymnastics. I wasn't paying attention to Bob Costas' babbling at the start of NBC's coverage; did he mention any other sports that would be covered?
The undefeated veterans of Olympic Volleyball win. Yay! (mainly because that means we're done with Beach Volleyball for the night).
Oh, fecking joy. Track and Field up next -- and it's Heats/Semi-Finals, not even final races . Gymnastics gets relegated to the tail-end of tonight's broadcast . Anyone want to take bets on what parts of the Event Finals will get chacked so the broadcast won't run past midnight (eleven for those in Central Time)? over
