Bolt With Another World Record

Berlino with Bolt

Berlino with Bolt

Usain Bolt with another world record.  This time, it is in the 200m race with the time of 19.19s.   This guy is FAST.  He is making his opponents just look slow.   I do not think anyone can beat him in the next couple of years if he stays healthy.  He is a runner ahead of his times in physical strength and speed.  We got to enjoy his runs as we can because it could be awhile before we see another athlete as dominant as him in their respective sport.


FOX Champions League Coverage Review

August 19, 2009 1 comment

Yesterday began the era of FOX’s coverage of the UEFA Champions League.  While most people may not have Fox Soccer Channel nor Setanta Sports to watch it, FOX decided to put one of the games on their regional sports network FSN.

Well, it took 0 minutes for FOX to screw up their coverage.  They had some techincal difficulty on the international feed commentator and were forced to have one of their own do emergency broadcasting for about 20 minutes until they were fixed.  Despite this problem, overall, the coverage was pretty good.  There was no ticker and the international commentators were pretty good.  Also, the broadcast was aired in HD, for those who picked it up, which ESPN did not do until the final.

While it was a solid day for FOX, they did have some hiccups.  First, was their techincal difficulty that they had with the audio.  Secondly, some of the regional sports network, mainly Comcast Sportsnet, screwed up in their HD feed.  However, this was mainly Comcast’s fault on that one.  Third and this is a minor complaint, the Heineken inserts are more annoying compared to ESPN’s Heineken inserts.  The inserts happened for about every segment.

These problems can be worked out, and probably FOX’s coverage will get better in the future.  The only things I miss that ESPN did well is that 2 matches per week that is available in many people’s home, free online replays like how ESPN360 did, and the commentary of Derek Rae.

Noooooo! He's Back

I know this might be a little late, but Brett Favre is back.  All I have to say is why can’t he just retire.  I am tired of his soap opera of whether to retire or not.  This flip flopping of retirement from him is making him into an old diva who is past his time.  He should just go back and do Wrangler jeans commerical and throw football to high schoolers.

I know that this might sound petty and childish, I hope the Minnesota Vikings have a terrible season because of him.  In addition, I hope that Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers just destory him.

End of rant.

Edit: I cannot believe I did this as my first post.  Should of delayed this. O well.
