Maybe there is a post on this already, but I was major disappointed with the coverage last night. They shows all of what, six runs? And for dramatic flair they start with a nasty crash! Then mix in about a third of the time with human interest crap. A whole segment on Tina Maze as a pop star! And a pointless interview with Mancuso's mom and grandma - ugh.
Sad that the "worlds best athletes" performances don't warrant Olympic coverage. 35 women in the final. You'd think they were short of time or something, but all in all they showed about 12 minutes of skiing in a 45+ minute segment. And the commentary was ridiculous. The only cool thing was the superimposed playback when they showed I think it was Gisen and Mancuso time synched side by side at one of the gates in some kind of slo-mo playback.
Now if NBC put a segment together where you do that for each run against the current leader, people would actually be psyched about skiing. Instead, they are like, NBC sucks, let's go to bed, we'll read about it on Yahoo! sports in the morning. I was so bummed I cancelled my cable subscription this morning.
