First, let me say that I don't have cable. All I have is free
That said, I'm disappointed with NBC's coverage of this Olympic games.
They did a far better job in 1996 and 2000, but this time they
skipped all kinds of different sports. No doubt they did this,
because these sports are not popular, but I still don't consider that
- NBC only broadcast 9 hours a day they still had plenty of time to
show the other less-popular sports
- The 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. slot was a stupid *repeat* show! That would
have been an ideal time to show these other events (and is what NBC
did in 92, 96 and 2000).
As I said, I'm disappointed I didn't get to see these sports (the *
indicates the ones I really wanted to see).
*Equestrian (a beautiful sport... imho just as beautiful as the
gymnastics or diving NBC dedicated 20+ hours to)
*karate (I love martial arts)
*WOMEN'S basketball (argh! They won a gold medal, and I didn't even
Stupid, stupid NBC. As I said before, you could have easily run these
less-popular sports during the 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. timeslot, so I could
tape it and watch it later... but no. You have a rerun. Idiots.
