  1. I checked the Comedy Central web site and they show it from 11:00 - 11:46 (eastern time zone) https://www.cc.com/tv-schedule
  2. I think the sock skating was an interesting idea doomed to failure. As it was, it was not that slippery, but if it had been slippery somebody could have fallen and broken a bone or hit their heads. After some of the comments from last week, I started to see how pointless Dayna's comments are.
  3. Simone Biles talks about her status with the twisties: https://people.com/sports/simone-biles-details-recovery-from-twisties-after-tokyo-olympics-gold-over-america-tour/
  4. Speaking of Season 2: last night I watched "Kitty Litter and a Class A Felony", the episode where Bonnie steals Alvin's ashes and Alvin's sons give Christy a check for "working the past 2 years without getting paid." I really liked the brothers and thought it's a shame we never saw those characters again.
  5. Oh, I love Karch and I loved him choking up talking about wanting to see them win the gold medal. I met him once after a pre-Olympic match (1996) and even though they had just played 4 tough sets he was still very gracious talking to all the fans. (I also met Bob Ctvrtlik who lit up when I asked him about Pepperdine!)
  6. I don't mind watching events where I know the results. What bugged me the most about NBC's coverage is the descriptions of the events on the TV guide were wrong half the time. I was jumping around the channels trying to find the events I wanted to watch.
  7. I went to the Gymnastics exhibition at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. I think it was on the Sunday after the first week of competition. It had both men's and women's artistic teams and the trampolines.
  8. To be honest, the only place I've heard about "drunk Australian athletes" is on this site. But I've had several conversations with friends about the Belarussian athlete.
  9. Today I learned that "synchronized swimming" is now called "Artistic Swimming". I went to one of the preliminary rounds at the 1996 Atlanta games, and not knowing anything about "synchro" was not expecting to be as mesmerized, but there were of course many rabid fans in our area in the stands who were happy to help us understand what's going on, and now I love watching it. One way to be really impressed by these athletes is to try to hold your breath when they are underwater. Just sitting on the couch, and I'm gasping. I love the camera views they are using where we can see a split of t
  10. I caught some of the women's speed climbing today - it was hard to believe, they looked like Spider-Man!
  11. I like the Wells Fargo VISA commercial with Katie Ledecky deciding she wants to learn archery. It's cute!
  12. I didn't like Toby. There, I said it.
  13. I really love this commercial from Dick's Sporting Goods: There is a 30 second version too And this one from Xfinity/Comcast:
  14. Just judging on the number of posts in this topic, beach volleyball isn't nearly as popular as NBC coverage would lead one to believe.
  15. Plus, she has great hair!
