This Slashdot story reminds me why I hate NBC Sports. I lived in New York in 1996 during the Olympic Games and I got to see soapy stories about which terrible obstacles athletes had overcome to end up winning whatever competition and ... NO SPORTS. And in 2000 I happened to be in the U.S. again during the Olympics and I got to see NO SPORTS. German ARD/ZDF will have literally hundreds of hours of live coverage from Athens from early in the morning into the night each day. Olympics is about sports and it's also about the guy who comes in on 36th place in Marathon, running a record for his country. NBC dilutes the experience. too bad, America doesn't get to see the Olympics.
