    Athletics started today, so put everything in here. Be warned tho that this thread will contain spoilers, so if you do not want to be spoiled, don´t open the thread after NBC has deemed you worthy enough of watching the day´s action in HD on your flat screen TV.

    I was wondering the same thing. I thought maybe NBC started covering Oakland A's games or something.

    No offense, but they also can't pronounce aluminum or schedule, call a vacation, a "holiday", and call a sausage, a "banger." Wait, they may be on to something...

    It's offence and not offense. Be consistent.

    What a helluva ****ing race! That was frigging awesome! Farah, who won for Britain, and Rupp train together in Oregon under Roberto Salazar. Rupp is only the third American ever to win a medal in the 10K.

    Usain 9.63 OR
    Blake 9.75
    Gatlin 9.79

    All 7 athletes ran under 10 seconds, except Asafa which pulled out midway due to apparent injury
