I put up with women's diving coverage because I'm hoping it means they'll show just as much men's diving. Equal ogling time and all.
 
2012-08-05 07:52:32 PM  

there their theyre: I'm just saying, if I wanted to watch this much diving is watch soccer.


*Golf clap*

I remember when Greg Lougainis was diving, they showed a lot of men's diving, they would show pretty much the whole men's competition on the springboard and platform.

phimuskapsi: usernameguy: How many different ways can you pronounce "He Zi"?

It probably is pronounced "huh zuh"

Either way a hell of a diver


But generally 3-5 ways per 'word'. Vowels can be typically pronounced with 4 different tones.

I dont' get why NBC had to delay the broadcast on a sunday. Weekdays? I get it. But durring the fall people spend all day sunday sitting infront of the TV watching sports.

ariseatex: Kinda wish we could have an "Olympic truce" for political commercials during Olympics coverage.


I'm with you.

Here in Texas the daytime broadcasts have been inundated with election commercials.

I pay little attention, it's mostly background noise while I work, but it allows me to rewind and watch when I hear big cheers. The republican commercials have caught my ear a few times, though. I have pretty near equal disdain for both parties and usually pay zero attention to political adds, but the overt and open racism of these adds is amazing. I guess they've done the research and decided that that will score more voters than it will cost them but, man, it's bizarre to hear between international swimming heats.

This. Especially when it means they don't cover the HOF Game like usual and it gets shifted to non-basic cable.

We HAVE to tape-delay a 10-second sprint for seven hours! Don't you know anything?

Meanwhile, the Italian synchronized swimmers have risen a ways out of the water while upside down and with their legs straight up in the air and my lungs ave gone on strike at the mere thought.

South Korea on deck and one wrapping herself backwards around the other before they've gotten into the water, HOW IS THAT NOT A PRIMETIME TELEVISION EVENT?

YouSirAreAMaroon: What's the deal with the hot tub?


I would guess it's to keep the body's muscles from tightening up between dives with all the going in and out of the water.
 
2012-08-05 08:02:24 PM  

YouSirAreAMaroon: What's the deal with the hot tub?


Keeps the muscles from tightening up due to the temperature difference between the pool and the air.

Submit one, notify an admin that there's interest, you'll probably get it greenlit.

What did I miss? Got home an hour ago but just booted up. Was at a golf tourney today. No I didn't play; just hast to move the dart at the 18th fairway closest to the bulls eye. Damn if some one didn't hit it with in 14 inches.

Going thru the thread and see what silliness is going on around here.

They're neither synchronized nor swimming. Discuss among yourselves.

Hey the Paralympics, which NBC will completely ignore, even though broadcasters in other countries cover it live.

Yeah. I know.

Granted, Olympics take place in Presidential election years and after the Olympics typically come the VP announcements and party conventions. So I'm not sure how you bump that stuff.

Depending on scheduling it works out well, plus there's the winter games and attendant Paralympics. Fortunately the International Paralympic Committee provides streaming from their own site for everyone around the world.

And as 9th-in-rotation Kazakhstan wraps up, I just realized I have no idea what it is exactly I'm supposed to be looking for in these routines.

She did say that she was cute. Then again, I mentioned earlier that one of the Dutch beach volleyballers was pretty.

Oscar is the Bomb! You want to drink something green, I created this one night at a party. It is called "Horny Green Shiat".
2 parts vodka, 1 part rum, 3 parts Midori (green melon liquor), some sprite (or 7 up) place in blender with ice (or use a shaker full of ice for shots).

1 part Orange juice, 2 parts jack, 1 part blue curacao.

Sounds awful, but tastes pretty good.

Interesting that Demus alternates lead legs on the last hurdles, usually hurdlers use the same one on every hurdle. Even more interesting her form with both legs is pretty much equal.

I think these two Beach Volleyball girls have gotten more time on the Prime Time replays than any other athletes. I mean, last night they gave them a half hour of coverage on a "round of 16" game when they totally crushed the opposition. Unnecessary, considering all the stuff they ignored.

If anyone's curious, I looked up T'Erea's bio and it turns out her mother overindulged in Earl Grey while pregnant and decided to name the baby after the stomach ailment she ended up with.

I don't do Jack. Jack D. & I had a bout one night and since then I don't do Jack. I always hate bartending when someone orders Jack. I generally wash my hands afterwards 'cuse the smell still turns my stomach.
