TheGhostofFarkPast: remember people use expat shield and watch BBC coverage live during the day. I sat at work all day and had it on in the background and it was nice to see everything live with out the commercials and for superior BBC coverage.


I watch the NBC streams, thanks to adblock no commercials in those, and can watch whatever I want. Granted it's mostly without commentary, but for me in most sports not a problem.

The in house whitewater announcers are hilarious.

given the caliber of most American sports commentators? It is. I'll put up with the wit wisdom of Teddy Atlas once boxing gets to the quarter finals. Just to see what he comes up with this time.

Will you all just drop it about the age of Chinese gymnasts? Tiny short Asians often look really young even when they aren't. I have a Vietnamese former student who at 22 is maybe 4' 10" (and short even for Vietnamese) and unless she's wearing a tailored business suit she looks about 12. I was looking through my pictures from 4 years ago when she was an 18 year old freshman and in those she looks about 10. How hard is it to consider the possibility that in a country of a billion and a half people they can find a half dozen tiny gymnasts?


THIS! .....getting tired of all the china bashing also.. I never realized the deep seated hate of Chinese people by so many farkers. Every single post that involves their athletes is negative in nature.

P.S. Climate is much like love, fickle. Change is not. Change is in your face. Change makes comfortable people uncomfortable. Duly noted. ;)

P.P.S. Anthropogenic climate change is inevitable: move inland, please. Live local. Buy human.

P.P.P.S. Thank you. Love abounds...

Yes, let's just simply overlook the fact that they've been caught before just so that you won't call us racist.

the problem is you have to have a cable providers log in to get to some of that info, my solution gives you not only live action but also with out having to actually pay for cable.

And Americans have been caught doping before but you don't see farkers accusing every successful American athlete of being a roided up freak.

It was 55 degrees (13 celcius) in London this evening. Vancouver 2010 was consistently warmer than that.

thecpt: is it just me or does it look like misty may is not taking this shiat seriously


you mean sort of like Michael Phelps? It's amazing to see NBC and the media give him so much attention considering he has come to London and come a complete dud. I respect the guy for all of his medals he earned but you can tell he is in it just for the money at this point and seems bored to be competing.

London is further north than Vancouver. In fact the whole of the UK is pretty damn far north.

cameroncrazy1984: PunkRockLawyer: Just wanted to point out that NBC got a journalist's Twitter account suspended for criticizing them. NBC sucks.

The idiot posted an NBC exec's private email address. Pretty sure that violates the TOS.


He posted their regular business address, which is plainly visible on the contact page at www.nbc.com

You realize you're stealing from the British government, right? If you were a British citizen, you'd be subject to a $1,600 fine.

Is there an Expat Shield for Mac or Linux. Need work streams.

12349876: Kenny B: It it live or is it Memorex NBC

You can criticize them for not showing this stuff live earlier in the day, but there's nothing to show live right now.


Of course there is. Watching the Braves live right now. Empty seats there too.

Demind these farkers, please.

They do NOT deserve your minds too.

Please.

Thank you.

P.S. CSB: I was once on a plane with some new agents of somewhere that sat next to me, and one/she was a beautiful brunette, and she had an O'Reilly book clutched between her claws, so I listened to "their" convos, and I ascertained that they aren't that smart, really...she read on the flight after the convo calmed down, enrapt...i noted.

I've decided that women's handball is my new favorite sport. Go Denmark!


It's like American football, soccer and wrestling had an orgy and this is the result. Jesus, I kept on going, "Oh, OW!" during the games. I am surprised I didn't see teeth flying.

I think I'm overlooking regular gymnastics on the BBC feeds.

Any tips? I see artistic, rhythmic and trampoline.

London's only further north by a degree or so. It's not like the Olympics are being held in Aberdeen.

I haven't seen as much Phelps-mania as last year. Does he still have a shot at the the Medal record, or did he blow it already?

Watched some Women's Volleyball today. Some of those Brazilian women were pretty damn hot.

No but nighttime in London in July is not typically warm so I'm not too surprised. And it typically doesnt get too cold even in the winter. The gulf stream is a pretty cool phenomenon.
