Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

Watching some of the men's beach volleyball prelims replays. These are some liberal hand sets. :/

Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

Japan knocks us off of the 400m IM perch that we have been on for a long time.

Silver-medalist Chase Kalisz made up a lot of ground over the last 200m, but came up a hair short.

That was a great swim by Hosszu. Domination.

NBC is crying. Carbon blobs flipping the channel.

Swiss blondie Anouk Vergé-Dépré is hot.

China's Wang got fat.


That was my beach volleyball commentary.

The one Swiss gal has a lot of cleavage for a volleyball player.

Apparently, we hadn't won a medal in that event since Montreal in 1976. Not bad considering the two 16 y/o on that relay.

NBC tries to justify the west coast delay for primetime but there really is no excuse for it on the weekend morning/afternoons. There's no Today Show to protect.
They should just show it live at 5pm and then the replay at 8pm instead of having the replay at 1am on the West Coast.

The only thing that sucks is there is no live Olympic coverage around 1am-6am PDT on the NBC Universal channels on Sunday Mornings.

Those are my peak awake hours.

That Hungarian women Katinka Hosszu who blew the world record in the 400m in swimming must be doping since she was way ahead of the world record time on her first lap lol.

So what favors did the Swiss Women Beach volleyball team do to review that net fault?

Tom Brokaw's feature on the Amazon got delayed because of that.

Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

USA WBB up 35-9 at the end of the 1st Q. Can they cover 57?

There is no surer gold than them. Geno can auto pilot coach this team.

Candace Parker isn't on this team. She'd be the best player on any other team.

Good MVB match between BRA and MEX - it's live on Telemundo if you can't stream..

Spotted MEX one set, but BRA drilled them after that. Really good team. Will be tough to beat.

Once USA got up 60, they just bumped it up 70 easily and then had mercy. Easy cover. Need to start betting them and ride them.

Re: 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

Great piece on Oscar Schmidt on NBCSN. I had totally forgotten about him and that USA Pan Am Games MBB loss in 1987. A precursor for 1988 in Seoul.

Ledecky is unreal. Could have had a WR if she wanted it. Obliterated that heat.

Just glad that the Canadian made it to the final tonight. She has a small chance for bronze.
