Yankee look good this year ,all young players ,maybe we will make it to the playoffs this year. But I said that about the Jets too . Its not easy being a sports fan in New York .The Knick, our High school basket ball team could beat them . Melo has too much drama , going on I refuse to watch them . GO YANKEES

Hey BLM,

The 9-16 Huskies might have gotten figuratively slapped by the 11-14 Buffaloes but Husky forward Malik Dime showed what they were made of by literally slapping two Colorado fans who were heckling him.

Now THAT'S basketball! Take that bitches!

Inez, I totally agree with you on the new 'America's Cup' ships. I want them to look like they did before as well.

I hate the new sail boat there use in the America cup . I like a sail boat to look like a sail boat and not some thing out of Stat Wars .I'm a yesterday sailor in a tomorrows world . I'm a old school boater . Even the new power boats are "Fgly".

The Olympics are a pretty tough thing to cover. So many sports and so spread out. Like Fokkers pointed out, if there isn't an American face in the final, no one in the US is going to watch. Unless you have a character like Eddie the Eagle, or maybe a mind boggling athlete like Apollo Ono.

They almost need a few channels kind of like C-span with a crew of camera and sound people covering the different sport bare bones style. Maybe an enthusiast of the sport providing commentary for free. That way people could watch their favorite thing, Ping Pong for me, synchronized swimming for someone else, without breaking the bank. The trouble is that even that kind of coverage costs a lot. I have a buddy who used to be a TV sound guy for professional sports events. He got a paid trip to Nagano just to lay out microphones on the downhill ski run each day, so we could hear the skis scrape the snow and all the fans with cowbells.

The America's Cup is still great to watch just for the sheer technology that is implemented into the boats. Technology has changed it from a relative "gentlemen's sporting adventure" into the equivalent of F1 on the seas. Turner was one of the last old school skippers. I believe it was Australia II (could be wrong on ) that caused the escalation with there use of the winged keel. It was so innovative and changed it. Then when you add the change to the cats well at that point the shit became all about computers, for a sport that depends on the wind.

Technology is always going to make sports better or worse. I remember watching Greg Lemond comeback from 50 seconds down on the final stage into Paris and defeat Laurant Fignon by 8 seconds. Greg was using these new fangled clip on aero bars and Laurant went with cow horns, it was never going to be a fair fight. Given technologies involvement doesn't make a champion, you still hav e to go out there and train your ass off, the tech just gives you a slight edge. Which the argument can be made is exactly what PEDs do.
