I would be happy just to see some events that are already available. Television stations (here in NYC) seems to only focus on running, swimming, gymnastics, basketball, and maybe beach volleyball. Hey, what about archery? badminton? table tennis? or basically any event where the U.S. isn't likely to get a medal?

Zac says he really, really wants to see discus and shot put. I am not sure what to tell him on that -- pretty sure it's just not going to be telecast.

That's what nbcolympics.com is for. I've been watching table tennis some today.

There were some other scenes in this movie that would have been even more appropriate, but they weren't on youtube.

I have seen both archery and table tennis, on either NBC or MSNBC. In fact, I saw three complete matches, where the U.S. men's team beat the Koreans, then the Koreans beating the Mexicans for the bronze, and the Italians(?) beating the U.S. for the gold.

I have seen the 17 yr. old U.S. table tennis player in two matches...one where she was stomped, and one where she did some stomping.

NBC claims that EVERY event is being live broadcast, at least on their web site.
