ESPN lied and said Phelps's race was at 10:48 and I missed it and NBC still hasn't shown a replay. I'm praying for the off-chance you grabbed it AA lol.

Thanks AA for the schedules!

On a side note, Phelps' mom's reaction was hilarious.

When they hired the track and field analysts, did NBC pick Carol Lewis instead of Carl on accident?

Half the reason I love the Olympics so much and I have been watching every night is because it has nothing to do with ESPN. I am serious. It is nice to have such a huge sporting event going on and we don't have ESPN involved. The only other time we get this is during March Madness.

Love it.

Does anyone else feel this way?

Your right, anon. This past week I probably haven't watched an hour total of ESPN while being obsorbed in the Olympics.

Nice job NBC. Giving us a touchy-feely close up on Tyson Gay to promote "tonight's" 100M race hours after WE ALREADY KNOW that he didn't even make the final.

"Giving us a touchy-feely close up on Tyson Gay"

That would make One News Now's site explode.
