While I’ve heard that the American broadcast of the Olympics, once again, sucks nasty … , here in Czech-o they’re running veritable commercial-free broadcasts on two channels. Today we watched skulls, table tennis, beach volleyball, cycling, marksmanship, swimming, archery, judo, tennis, and other stuff. There’s lots of back and forth, but that’s okay since the sport is covered well.
What’s more, coverage begins at 9a.m. and runs till midnight. Not bad. And … not knowing the language lets me ignore the commentary and focus on the sport.
