Let me just say that, like Ann, I dig the Olympics also. What I most assuredly do not dig is the crappy coverage by NBC.

I have always been disappointed in how the primetime network broadcast completely short changes the field events. Why, oh why, do we have to endure every single motherfucking dive in the women's 30 meter platform finals and then get two or three five-minute-long summaries of the men's high jump? That's just last night's example. Pay attention as we go on. Every field event will be a five minute summary. For once why can't they show every jump? I understand editing for time but why do we only get to see the jumps that are crucial? Give us some sense of the flow of a field event, you bastards.
