NBC does a lot right and a lot wrong. This is an insanely huge undertaking and they'll never make everyone happy. Their apps and streaming options so far have been fantastic, I think, so, this is a step in the right direction from them. Also, I seem to be the last guy who actually likes Bob Costas. I think he makes a hard job look effortless. This goes for his anchor duties during the games, I won't even bother to comment on the Opening Ceremony, which more and more is less about the athletes and more about showmanship. Lastly, Meredith Vieira is annoying is hell.


I like Bob Costas too.

I was hoping the Olympics would bring you back

Haven't been able to watch a second of the Games yet... hoping to rectify that tonight!

The siren song of the Olympics and the fun of this thread in the past summoned me back.

Hope you get to watch tonight.

I'm walking a tightrope between watching certain streamed events but staying ignorant of results so the primetime coverage on NBC is new to me. It entails laying off the internetz most of the day, which is fairly easy to do....next week, while at work, though, combined with being on the west coast, will prove much harder to remain spoiler free. I'm likely gonna get up super early to watch USA v France in men's hoops. I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD.

I had my doubts, but a ray of hope remained throughout.

I wish the world badminton federation (whatever it's called) had let our team stick with the Black Cocks name!

Hope the Black Sticks can hold on to this lead. It's time for revenge after Australia beat us to the Commonwealth Games gold in a penalty shoot-out. Turns out we're ranked higher in the world than the Aussie team. Who knew!
