Mens 100m final...taped?!

Yep - that's the only way you'll get to see it in America. F*cking pathetic, NBC. We already know the finish, and it's only 5:20 pm. NBC won't show it until sometime after their primetime coverage starts at 7:00 pm. The order: Justin Gatlin (USA), Francis Obikwelu (Portugal), Maurice Greene (USA), in 9.85, 9.86, and 9.87, respectively.

Sounds like it was probably an exciting race - if you got to watch it live. Drugs be damned! Hey, we're all hypocrites at some level. That we couldn't see it live is just unbelievable. Talk about monopolizing the airwaves. Thanks to the Internet we know who won almost as soon as the rest of the world.

I'll make sure to tune in tonight to watch these guys justify their existence in ten lonely seconds - 3 hours after the fact. Horrible horrible horrible.
