another solid showing for the US...

wish we did better in both mens and womens volleyball, though at least the ladies took home the silver...

I love the Olympics and what it should stand for, but am I the only one who just gets pissed off knowing every single event is sponsored by something corporate? or now the commercials with the American athletes are promoting some type of product....when the hell did that happen??

I remember a few of those ads in 2010, but damn, it seemed like every other commercial had a US Olympian in it promoting something...

I am not anti corporate by any means, but this just seemed overboard to me, and a complete slap in the face to what this Olympics should and has stood for...I guess I am old school..

Win-win, and they'd probably get better ratings, too. The people that want to see it live and not get spoiled get what they want, the people that don't care and just want to watch at a convenient time get what they want, and NBC gets what they want by having less need for filler.
Agreed, the first showing would have significantly better ratings than whatever crap is on one of those channels.
