The real Olympics

A writer's lament that NBC's coverage of the Olympics missed the real Olympics. I agree with the author that the coverage of beach volleyball was over the top, and the Track and Field coverage suffered. My Olympic experience was spent mostly on the CBC, which was markedly better than the American coverage. Don't get me wrong thhere was an equal amount of nationalistic horn blowing in this country, but CBC brought more things live, and in depth.

Looking forward to seeing DK in the London games (archery). Also, watched the Derek Redmond thing and my eyes stayed dried. Sometimes I don't understand myself.
