Men's Gymnastics Coverage Sucked!
First of all, NBC's coverage of the Men's Gymnastics Team Finals sucked. Talk, talk, talk is all they did! People tuned in to see the athletes, not listen to a bunch of blowhards pontificate on China's dominance, USA's surprising performance and wonder why everyone on Japan's team seems to be out of their minds. At the very least could we possibly see someone from each team do each apparatus? Instead we are interrupted with swimming heats and shots of China fixing the parallel bars. Then we are told how unexciting China's high bar routines are but we see them anyways!
