Perhaps you should, like, look harder? That took about two seconds to find on the Cycling page...

BMX debut at the Olympics

Was reading through the BMX section and only saw 1 person mentioning this.

Why isn't anyone interested in the BMX races during the Olympics.

Will anyone watch the finales tomorrow?

It was quite interesting to see todays races. And was no surprise to see all the Americans qualify for the semi finals. After all, the dudes from California were the first ones riding them.

That track looks great. Too bad I can't watch. I'm sure some .avi torrents will pop up eventually.

MSNBC's setup strongly favors Micro$oft PC's and you have to have their Media Player and that Silverlight crap. So I guess I won't be watching their feeds as I run Linux (refusing to pay for Micro$ofts poor excuse for an OS). I'm with stereo in #18, in hoping some vids make it to more reasonable sources.

Do you honestly think you're not paying for your copy of Windows when you buy a Dell?
