Apparently so.

I don’t know about you guys, but power walking is my new fav sport. :mhihi:
Oh, and some of the guys in the back are blatantly jogging.

Last Olympics one of the guys got DQ heading into the stadium and he was in 2nd place. They get like 3 warnings and it doesn't matter where they are it is over. That sport is funny as hell to me.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

What's hilarious about this is that they actually have DOUBLES table tennis (or Pong to some). 4 people playing table tennis is an ironic sight considering how small the table is. It truly is a "WTF" moment when you see it for the first time.

I can't help but be reminded of Forrest Gump...double time though.

Doesn't make sense to me either. They should Keep softball and baseball. Table tennis is fine but power walking is flat out ridiculous. I laugh everytime I see it.

Damn! Torres loses by .01seconds to take the silver. Still impressive for a 41yr old woman.

I'm sure BB is out celebrating in the streets of Romania because of Constantina Tomescu's gold medal in the marathon.

I really wanted her to get one individual gold medal in her career. That is really sad that she was .01 seconds slow to getting it. Still a great woman though.

WTF. Bolt sets a WR 9.68 and it seems like he eased off at the end. Ridiculous.

They're saying he could have run a sub 9.60 if he didn't pull up. Just insane.

Usain Bolt LOL!

This guy is comedy. He was so satisfied with himself.

I loved it when those random Chinese fans were hugging him like they were his boys. Hilarious.

She definitely has been. She hurt the US most on the relays, especially after she dropped individual events.

She did too many races. If she had a more reasonable schedule, I think she would have been fine.

After it all, Coughlin is the first female swimmer to get at least 6 medals in one Olympics.

East coast it's live at 8 PM. However, that would be 5 PM on the west coast. During the week, they would loose all their audience.

This is the most watched Olympics ever, giving NBC great ratings, so you can see why they wouldn't ever be live on the West coast.

KCAL does the same thing with the very early East coast Laker games.
