It's all Chevy's fault. This is their spotlight event for tonight. If they could choose an event to spotlight, why wouldn't they take a LIVE swimming final with Phelps in it?!?

Watching NBC pretend this is happening in real-time after I've already seen it really makes me feel as if I'm in the Matrix.

He said in an interview earlier this week that he's planning on being in London, but not swimming a full slate of events. So maybe a chance for three or four more golds.

The record for total medals is 18, so with him on 16 now I think we can count on him trying at least three.

I did hear them sneak in a phrase somewhere right after the Phelps race, something like "last night's final"...

omg, what a surprise...

ETA: Bolt "turned the corner"? What corner? What race was he watching?

Bolt probably added 0.1 sec just by pulling up at the end.

LOL, I know it's en vogue to bash NBC but they did lead into the event by saying here's the 100m "which was run last night here in Beijing"

Obviously Bolt's name sounds too much like Hussien for the dept of Homeland Security. They needed those 13 hours to make sure he wasn't a terrorist and to make sure the tape of the race wasn't a signal to cells in the US to carry out an attack.

I believe they only said it was from last night about a dozen times, starting when they began coverage at 7:30.

The thing is it wouldn't have been that hard to just air it at 10:30 this morning, would it?

and then they could have replayed it tonite and absolutely no one would have cared that it played earlier and people would still watch it.
