NBC Olympic Coverage – Free Dance / Daytona 500

So Monday We are watching the NBC main channel and the Free Dance was very entertaining.  We are amazed by the talent and the amazing tricks/moves.  Then half way through they go to commercial and come back to Men’s Hockey!  Yes, no warning or any mention that after the commercial they were going to Men’s Hockey even though the Free dance was half done.  No mention that we needed to go somewhere else to finish the Free Dance.  NBC screws up again!  Their coverage is the worst in years.  After a few minutes we found the Free Dance on the NBC Sports channel, but we missed a few contestants.  We created a new name for NBC – Nothing But Crap.  

 

NASCAR kicked of this season with the Daytona 500 on Sunday and even though we don’t watch it as much anymore, the Daytona 500 is always a good race.  The race itself was entertaining and the commentators are the best.  Then came the last lap and Austin Dillion  bumped AJ Allmendinger who was in first and cause him to crash.  Austin Dillion should have been disqualified for the blatant pushing AJ out of the way, but the spoiled brat Austin will won’t be because his grandpa is a big time powerful owner in NASCAR.  Then when Austin compared himself to Dale SR. as a driver we almost puked!  The only reason Austin has the #3 is because his grand-daddy owned the number and would not retire it.  Austin thanked the Earnhardt family for giving his team the number when in fact that is not true.  Grandpa must have fibbed to Austin.  Dale E. SR was number 3 and the number should have been retired, not given to a snot nosed kid.  Needless to say “Bye-Bye NASCAR”.

We have nothing else to report at this time and we need to clean the barf off the floor after the Dale DR remark.  Hey “The Voice” Fans its coming back soon!

Note:  We added a “Contact Us” to the right side-bar per several requests by our awesome readers.  Feel free to email us, but anything negative will go straight to File 13.

2018 Olympics in PyeongChang South Korea – Day 1

So the opening ceremonies were a HUGE disappointment when the NBC Commentators said that because of time constraint there were NOT showing the entire ceremony, but if you want to see the entire event go to NBC.sports.com.  We don’t ever remember any opening ceremony not being shown fully.  NBC is doing a crap job in their coverage which they promote 24/7 coverage.  If its 24/7 then why not show the whole thing?  Does NBC think that the viewers want to see 100 hours of Curling? Or probably because the lousy commentators kept lauding the fact the South and North Korea were marching out as one country.  It did not sound to us like they were happy about that, but they are doing such a lame job or they wanted us to think they were the center of the universe in their coverage.  If it was us we would have said “The fact that South and North Korea were marching as one country is awesome and hopefully the beginning of peace in the world.  The person that put this deal together should be proud and get some kind of award like the Nobel Peace Prize.”  Then the presentation of four entertainers singing “Imagine by John Lennon” By John Lennon wit the Peace Doves combining in to one was awesome.

Overall the Korean people did a great presentation as far as what we saw, but NBC made it feel cheap.  We have already complained about the commentators making the Olympic a political event on Twitter (Yes we are on Twitter and Facebook).

So today we set our alarm for the Ski Jumping, which was good.  The commentators were excellent on this event.  The back to sleep and woke up to the Men’s Luge and the commentators on this were good too.  The hour of Men’s Downhill was boring but the Women’s Speed Skating is interesting and we will continue watching.

So the trick is to watch the events, they seem to have good commentators but where NBC is “killing” time commentators are the worst ever.  There must be a cable channel other than NBC that is broadcasting the Olympics and even if it was in a foreign language we will watch it.

We are only through half of the first day and will continue watching on the dreaded NBC holding our finger over the mute button.  So Nothing more right now.  To all out there in Olympic Cyberland have an awesome day watching athletes follow their dreams.
