hostJP: Too many filler stories, not enough action. Come on NBC, 300+ events and you idiots chose to do a 20 min. segment on Phelps and his mom.



There's zero interview filler on the BBC. It's out there! Only a Google away! Paradise! Run Forrest, run!

Oh sweet Jesus is dressage boring as hell.

Do the horses do anything else besides trot around in a square?

It's okay. I don't expect VIP service. I won't tell anyone either. Keeping a lid on the BOX, if you will. Lets continue to watch TV.

Just be careful of things that popup from time to time and realize free things can be slow and shoddy

It is funny to hear the commentators move from fellating Phelps to Lochte mid-race.

Here's an example of a dressage test a judge has. There's a lot the judge is looking for, mostly artistic, that's not easy for an inexperienced spectator to pick out.

I went to it when it was in Atlanta with my mom and her friends. The dressage was stupidly boring...I kept hoping they started doing the Spanish Riding School stuff where they walked on two legs and shiat. But no. It's just really freaking quiet and really freaking boring.

The cross country, though, is crazy. Those motherf*ckers jump and run through anything

Tip for Phelps: switch from weed to coke.

If you want the exciting version of dressage, watch the modern pentathlon.

They can barely ride the horses, the horses are randomly assigned, and there's usually at least one "horse runs into the crowd, causing mass panic" incident.

It's the Benny Hill of Olympic events.
 
2012-07-28 09:41:44 PM
fark NBC. Nobody farking cares about Micheal Phelps' mom. Nobody. No body. I would watch live coverage of Rmoney horse ballet before I intentionally watched that inane interview.

Why does he do that? Is he trying to get some sort of dual sponsorship from Faberge and Colgate?

This is truly as bad as people in the spoilerific thread said.

I still don't know why NBC didn't just air this live and then did it again during primetime. Maybe they were afraid of losing viewers now, but during the week, it shouldn't really hurt them to air it twice.
 
2012-07-28 09:43:35 PM
You' think that after Phelps shiat the bed they would drop his coverage somewhat. He's clearly fading and his personality is too informed by pot and entitlement to embody the Olympic ideal.
 
2012-07-28 09:44:20 PM
WHAT I WAS WATCHING WHEN THE PHELPS/LOCHTE RACE CAME ON:

A replay of a round-of-32 judo match I'd actually missed between Mozambique and the Solomon Islands.

I kinda trickled in to the race halfway through, stuck around to hear the call, and went right back to judo.

/Solomon Islands won

Women's foil was pretty epic. Big comebacks, an all Italian podium. And it looked like Tron.

Screw that. Do we actually get to see fencing this time, or not?

Sounds intense. Seems like the perfect sport for people who are anal retentative.

My guess is that age and losing that drive has taken its toll. I'm guessing the long races are out of his reach. We'll see how he does in the short races and relays. I bet he gets his three medals before it's over.

I did enjoy the fencing today. The Italians fence quite...well, like Italians. Very flamboyant, very emotional.

Try the BBC's scheduler.

You won't be able to actually watch there unless you do something naughty.

Yeah, the fencing was cool earlier.

I couldn't tell where the damn thing was going until their helmets lit up, though
 
2012-07-28 09:49:38 PM
If you could find the fencing, GOOD FOR YOU.

It sure doesn't play even after I donated my firstborn to NBC Live Extra. Where the fencing clips and equestrian clips are broken.
