This is probably the most exciting swimming competition you will ever see.
The French were talking trash talking earlier in the day, saying they “couldn’t wait to smash the Americans” in the freestyle relay. Their prediction looked like it was going to come true, because as the race winded down, they had a full body lead on the U.S. and the finish line was in sight.
Out of nowhere… U.S. swimmer Jason Lezak puts on the afterburners and chases down Alain Bernard of France to capture the gold medal for America… you have to see this video. This is the very definition of ETHER. The video doesnt show the look on the faces of the Frenchies after they realize they’ve lost… but it was PRICELESS!!!!
This is absolutely infuriating to California residents.
I realize that China is on the other side of the planet, and this inevitably causes scheduling conflicts with the U.S.A. However, the morning events in China happen to line up perfectly to air during prime time hours in the United States.
At this very moment, the east coast is watching Michael Phelps compete for his first medal live with no tape delay, and the west coast will have to wait 3 hours to see what happens. Do you realize how hard it is to ignore the results of a major sporting event in the age of the internet? Why is NBC not airing these events live across the entire country?
Why must I be forced to go to NBCOlympics.com and navigate through their non-user-friendly setup to watch sub-par streaming video on my computer?
