NBC will probably have the next Olympics too... they should broadcast brazil live, that way people can go on whatever has replaced twitter and complain that they were at work and didn't get to see anything.

Have you seen the rope necklaces that all the baseball players wear? They are supposed to have some magical magnetic powers, and they all bought into it...though it's starting to fall out of favor.


Just because is psychosomatic doesn't mean it's not real. It can have a real effect.

It's okay Canada - the Winter Olympics are just two years away.

The mens 100 has not been shown in my time zone yet. I guess ( going by the comments here) that NBC did not show or mention the bottle thrower just at the start of the men's 100? Link

A) Stream everything.
B) Everything live (or close to it) on some station
C) Highlights on regular NBC during primetime.
D) No human being interest, no Secrest, no BS
E) Profit?

NBC has coverage through 2020. So we are stuck with this suckage for awhile. Hopefully Costas will die soon. But then we'll have to deal with the NBC asshats creating a tribute for him. So we have to suffer for awhile (with or without Costas).

You mean, the way the Olympics were before NBC had a monopoly.
Monopolies = not free market

Yeah, those drive me nuts as well. More magic water bullshiat. Aqua titanium.... So, they ink a little chunk of titanium soaked in water for some period will make them better. I laughed for hours after hearing about those and how prevalent they became. If this were Australia, that phiten company would have gone bankrupt for false claims by now.

Well, the definitely have the next Olympics nailed down.

And they should broadcast live. The NBC/Comcast/Universal magaplex has a ton of stations to broadcast on (List Link), and then give us a true highlight show in Prime Time. If prime time is packed with live "marquee" events, then run the day's highlights on USA Network.

Phillip Phillips, "Home." Fair warning, you will lose any hipster cred you might've had because he's the winner of the most recent American Idol season.

And they can get that real affect from cheap tape as well. I don't support wasting money on expensive crap that is pseudoscience at best, and bad hackery at that.

That black girl in the middle of the vault lineup? She's from the Dominican Republic.

Costas seems like one of those guys who will be around for a while. If his personal life is as squeaky clean and milquetoast as his on-air persona, he'll probably be around for 2020.

Is 9 PM still primetime? Because it's after 9 in the Central timezone and there's no 100-meter final yet.

And it's definitely not primetime anymore out East.

I went to the DR a few years ago, and was struck by how many black people there had blue eyes.

Well, there's when it's acceptable to show a Foreigner. When they totally botch it.

Yeeeeowch. Looks like jammed her foot upwards against her shin. Poor thing.

East coast prime time is considered to be 8PM - 11PM. Sunday night, 7PM is included too.

oh man. :(
 
2012-08-05 10:13:24 PM  
That's such a bummer, didn't do either jump.
 
2012-08-05 10:13:57 PM  
I feel bad for that girl, but at least she did the smart thing and didn't go through with that second vault. I'm guessing there is some pretty hefty ligament or tendon damage there.

They didn't show the third Russian floor exercise when she botched it, though. Fark was looking forward to it being shown, but no...

Another human interest story on the same damn US vaulter. This is the third on for her tonight in the last 10 minutes

2012-08-05 10:15:06 PM  
ok, so I went to a private school in the South with a lot of spoiled rich kids from all areas of the country and saw lots of plastic surgery on a lot of college girls. Her little up-turned nose is just a little too perfect, isn't it?
 
2012-08-05 10:15:13 PM  
I ma loving the matrix replay.
 
2012-08-05 10:15:44 PM  
So is this also going to function as the Curiousity landing thread or is there a separate one for it?

Spoiler: It finds a 3-boobed lady
 
2012-08-05 10:15:50 PM  
So glad that Canadian vaulter chose not to try another jump. Could seriously damage whatever is already likely at LEAST a ligament strain.
 
2012-08-05 10:16:21 PM  
Basically, the Dominican vaulter just out and out goes for it. Complete and utter tonight-we-dine-in-hell stuff.

I hope they show the slow-mo replay of the 100m after the finals. That is fun to watch.

2012-08-05 10:17:01 PM  
Interesting that the men can't get away with a false start - the announcer just said men have to finish their vault, but the women can back off. That seems like a shiatty double-standard, even if it benefits the women. If a guy feels "off" he should be able to back up and approach again. Better that than getting hurt.

I noticed a lot of runners have chain necklaces. I have to believe there is only one reason the have that thing flopping around; they run faster with it. Althetes do a lot of strange things that help their perfomance for no good scientific reason.

That had got to hurt the ass after spinning like that.
