  1. Hmmm. I like Jim Lampley. I wonder if he will be back for 2012 or if he is retiring from Olympic altogether.
  2. Is YellowVest crazy enough that he might actually do something in 2010 to make his prophecies and warnings legit?
  3. Tennis in the Olympic Games is a waste. Get rid of it.
  4. Link to Article in Context: http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-vancou...7020,full.story From the Los Angeles Times Vancouver Olympic organizers face cold economic realities Those planning the event that begins a year from now say they are reining in costs amid global downturn but won't skimp on making it a great experience. By Helene Elliott February 12, 2009 Reporting from Vancouver, Canada — Vancouver is where sky and sea meet in stunning harmony, where homes with lush, English-style gardens sit a few blocks from sleek skyscrapers that jostle for slivers of million-dollar views. This
  5. From 7-7:45 am they did live teasers with her, then at 7:45 went live to her for the segment. She was in Whistler, with recorded segments from both Vancouver and Whistler. Still coming up are "Olympic Hopefuls" (Americans, one presumes) on the ice rink here in New York at Rockefeller Plaza.
  6. Today show's Natalie Morales doing live (ET) broadcasting from Vancouver this morning to promote one year until the opening of the games.
  7. Yes, there is a Michael Phelps DVD. You may also download all of his gold medal swims from the U.S. iTunes store.
  8. Another quote related to the 3D OG footage: I checked out Panasonic's home theater in 3D. I must admit, the experience was phenomenal. I felt like I was on the floor at the Olympics opening ceremonies in Beijing right along side the hundreds of dancers and drummers. But without the glasses, the image looked fuzzy.
  9. Hmmm, I would love to see this. Full article at: http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/01/15/3d.tv/index.html At this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, four of the top selling TV manufacturers - Samsung Electronics, Sony, LG Electronics and Panasonic - showed off their latest versions of 3D TVs. Panasonic set up a mini-home theater where its 103-inch, plasma 3D screen showed clips from New Line Cinema's Journey to the Center of the Earth and Walt Disney Pictures' animated film Bolt. They also showed high-definition 3D footage from NBC's broadcast of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
  10. Link to article in context: http://aroundtherings.com/articles/view.aspx?id=31216 Beijing Faces Post-Olympic Dilemmas (ATR) Promises of legacy and sustainability look enticing on the pages of Olympic bid books, but can ring as hollow as empty stadiums in the aftermath of the Games. Beijing is the latest Olympic city struggling to find a use for its biggest venue. The centerpiece of the Olympic Green is starting to look like just another white elephant. The Bird's Nest, the 91,000-seat National Stadium, has become mainly a tourist attraction. Visitors pay around $7 to walk on the stadium
  11. I must say Joshua Cooper Ramo's cultural commentary for NBC was the best of the different network OC coverage that I've seen.
  12. Indeed, CoSport did begin notifying people today, at least according to the Seattle Times. http://blog.seattletimes.nwsource.com/olympics/ January 6, 2009 9:20 AM Washington state Oly fans tops -- by far -- in Vancouver ticket requests Posted by Ron Judd Washington state residents accounted for a whopping 40 percent of ticket requests for the Vancouver 2010 Games, the sole U.S. Olympic ticket distributor says. CoSport, which today began notifying fans which tickets -- if any -- they will receive for the February, 2010 Games, said in a news release that 40 percent of its 14,179 ticket o
  13. Given that Vancouver/BC couldn't get it's act together to complete the full renovations in time for the games in 2010, it won't be world class during the OWG.
  14. You're the one who doesn't know what he's talking about because the question at hand was "Did NBC air segments of the OC that were not originally shown on 8-8-08 in the U.S.?" and the answer is YES. No one gives a rip whether that sequence was "Part of the Dynastic sequence" or not, and you know that, you just kept blathering on in your own world addressing a question that wasn't asked, or being discussed.
  15. UGH, have you not seen the Canadian or Australian broadcasts? There is a whole segment not aired in the US that NBC aired part of last night. I have the NBC DVD plus I have the full original NBC broadcast ripped from a DVR, and it wasn't shown, NBC went to a commercial break. You don't know what you are talking about.
  16. The whole beginning before the Dynastic sequence was cut from the U.S. broadcast, you have the DVD you should know that.
  17. Yes there was a whole segment not aired on NBC before the "Dynastic" sequence that CBC did show, but NBC did not originally.
  18. Separate victory ceremonies are stupid. Medal ceremonies should be held at the venues at the completion of events. I applaud this move, bad economy or not.
