Earguy: donnielove: So what happens at midnight? Local news or will they stay with the pre-taped show that match that's going to run over because of an hour long documentary?

My listings say 30 mins local news, then Olympics again...freestyle wrestling.


Same here in So. FL. Probably with Mary C. Since Tom took an hour they probably have Mary doing about 20 mins of some English non-interesting thing.

PaulieattheTap: They never showed Bolt trying to keep the baton after the run. The officials were after him. He kept saying No. It's mine man. I have a world record. (that's what I got from reading his lips anyways) He seemed a little pissed after they took it. I hope the London Olympic Committee gives it to him.


They gave it back to him a little bit later -- sometime before they went in to prep for the medal ceremony.

My guess is we hit some sort of time warp during this commercial break and come back to see most of the last set.

WhyteRaven74: Selector: Yeah but the last three get a running start. So that's prolly half a second apiece right there.

Well that's the thing, they get running starts and what they're capable of is staggering. I'd love to see the split times for each leg.


Sorry, I know I might be guilty of being pedantic, but it's a pet peeve of mine when people average or extrapolate track times, even though I know they don't know any better. Not at you, because you seem to know what you're talking about, but like that girl last night who was amazed with how Rudisha's 800m time was a 3:20 mile pace...while mathematically true, it doesn't mean anything in reality, because he's not gonna keep going. Like no one runs a 65 second 400m and then says "OMG, that's world record marathon pace!!" even though it's mathematically accurate, because it doesn't mean anything tangible. People who don't follow the sport don't understand that.

But if we're being pedantic, I still owe you one from last night when 800m was NEARLY 805m. ;)

The problem was that he was asking the wrong person - the older chap was telling Bolt that his entire job was to get the baton back to the Referee (in the pink/purple shirts) and that it wasn't in his power to make that decision, he was a glorified ball-boy. If Bolt wanted to keep it, he had to ask the referee once the baton was returned to him, which he did. The ref said OK, Bolt got it, took a few photos with it and will show his kids.

It would have been really interesting to see what the hell happened in those last two sets.

Just saw the Seahawks new uniforms in action for the first time. Holy crap they look worse than Oregon.

Side-note, wasn't this volleyball game shown live on NBC earlier today? Might be wrong on that. Either way, I'm fairly certain NBC hasn't generally been showing events in primetime that they already aired during daytime (unless short and/or gold). No surprise they've been skipping ahead in the volleyball game.

Plus the the Brazilians covered every inch of the court. There had to a brazillion of them out there.

Yes, it was on live here live in S. Fl. I started watching it at then end of game 2.

Thank god there is only one more event I care about and it's being broadcast live. I am so done with NBC's coverage.

You do extensive (some would say excessive) live coverage of volleyball the entire tournament, only to hack it to pieces when you get to the gold medal match. This is the worst of NBC's coverage so far.

Wow. Good to see Great Britain doing so well on the medals, especially the golds.
