Jamaica's Barbados slim took gold in both Limbo and Sex!

Important day today, let's see what NBC gives us

Given what happened today, I can't wait to see how NBC butchers it.

Costas in glasses? Hiding the bags under his eyes?

NBC is not only tape delaying it is stealing New York Times infographs from days ago.
 
2012-08-09 08:05:24 PM  
Men with balls of steel, and nine other events.

Maybe you could start with the other events and save the steel testicles for last. Or omit them entirely. Really, I won't mind.

What's up with the stupid colored tape on everybody?? No way that shiat works.

Using white tape is racist.

It balances out the 4 bodily humors.

It's part of the reason why you never hear the term "smart jock".

NBC is going for the hipster demographic.

Good news everybody! No beach volleyball!

He just looks awful. Like, not healthy.

Penalties. Two of them. Or were there?

Thankfully we don't have to watch the whole soccer match.

They showed that live during the day.

It is at least questionable according to this:

I'd try it. Even if it ended up being placebo-effect.

Wonder if water polo watchers were subjected to shocking and unexpected nipples?
 
2012-08-09 08:13:34 PM  
Ryan Seacrest. MAKE IT STOP
 
2012-08-09 08:13:57 PM  
Wow Bob is just so enthused about the women's soccer and water polo teams.
 
2012-08-09 08:14:01 PM  
Go away, Seacrest.
 
2012-08-09 08:14:15 PM  
Ryan seacrest. Time to drink.

For some stuff, like around joints, I can see it definitely working very well. Given that it's more flexible that traditional athletic tape, it would well around knees, shoulders etc. Other stuff? Yeah that would be a bit questionable.
 
2012-08-09 08:14:58 PM  
I would totally donate $100 to al-Qaeda if they killed Ryan Seacrest.
 
2012-08-09 08:14:58 PM  
Fark Seacrest. If I wanted to know what Facebook was saying, I open a new tag. Same with twitter. If as if NBC is trying to piss people off.

I'll match that
 
2012-08-09 08:15:57 PM  
I just had a disturbing thought.

*dons tinfoil hat*

What if Costas looks so bad because before they went on air he was informed that Ryan Seacrest would be the main face of Olympic primetime come the 2014 Winter Games?
 
2012-08-09 08:16:13 PM  
Carrying this over from the tail end of the live thread:

So we make a big, huge deal of the introduction of women's boxing to the Olympics, and deservedly so, and particularly the first woman to win gold in women's boxing, Nicola Adams... but Adams is British, so NBC waited for the division where an American won and then ran that medal ceremony instead, outright saying that SHE'S the one who got the first medal as opposed to Adams and.

This is almost getting into the realm of propaganda now.

What about rhythmic gymnasts with big ball?
 
2012-08-09 08:16:43 PM  
I still think it was BS that the ref didn't call that handball for a PK in the women's game today.

Seacrest has already consumed the souls of Casey Kasem and Dick Clark. Costas has every reason to worry. He at least wants to qualify for the Quickening.

They are talking to the mundanes. The ones that watch the entertainment shows like TMZ but don't know how to get to Google other than searching for it.

Koman Coulibaly said it was the right decision. That's all I need.

I was watching it on CNBC and they showed the American last and showed the other gold medal ceremonies.

Fixed, though we're probably saying the same thing.

Every woman I know is ticked as hell at NBC's coverage, including their social media updates.

Preseason football is on! I can channel hop. And make the wife cry.
 
2012-08-09 08:19:51 PM  
Goddamnit so much NBC. We get recaps of gold medal matches in women soccer and water polo but we get semifinal diving...

I missed the Womens Wrestling. Did they use mud or Jello?

Since Kinesio tape was invented by a chiropractor/acupuncturist, I'm doubting its legitimacy even more.

Watched it live on the BBC. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

WhyteRaven74: I was watching it on CNBC and they showed the American last and showed the other gold medal ceremonies.


I was watching it too. They gave five seconds to Adams' ceremony, then kept going 'FIRST! FIRST! FIRST! SHE'S THE FIRST ONE!' when the American won, making little to no mention of what exactly they meant by 'first' (namely, the first American). If you weren't paying attention, you'd get every impression that America got the first gold instead of Britain.

If you use it in delicate areas (like hamstrings and such), do yourself a favor and shave before you use this tape.

Really? Yeah, its placebo all the way. There is nothing it can do to support or modify the flat muscles.

I have a theory that Bob Costas ins the new Dick Clark. May noy look old, but doesn't look right.
