Day 4 of the 2012 Summer Olympics

I am trying to get into the 2012 Summer Olympics, but I am having a hard time watching it. I don’t know if it’s because of NBC (who are not doing a good job this time around) or the time delay and not being able to watch some of the events live.

But here on Day 4, here are some of the highlights of the Games. All of these pictures are from the London 2012 website.

So, I will still continue to watch the Olympics, still get results on my phone before I get the chance to watch them and mute the TV when some of the NBC Olympics commentators orĀ Ryan Seacrest are on.

Side notes:

People need to claim down when it comes to Michael Phelps and him not winning every race he is in this time around. He is probably the best Olympic athlete ever. He set a record that maybe no one will ever touch. So, if he doesn’t win gold in ever race…

An ad for Tuesday’s “Today” show promoted 17-year-old American swimmer Missy Franklin‘s gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke during the East Coast broadcast of the games. One problem: The promo aired about seven minutes before the network showed Franklin’s victory. — Way to go NBC!

I just hope they get better when it comes to the Track and Field events… from my lips to God’s ear on this wish!
