    Having the deadline during the Christmas period would be fine. A December 31st deadline would be interesting. I think we should pick all three medalists, just like we do now. It makes it more...

    I'm perfectly happy with NBC Gold. Today, I watched the track events, women's discus, and men's high jump, all at the same time. I paused the field events for a couple minutes during the track races....

    Jenny Simpson never looks like a medalist on paper. But all she does is win medals. Until she proves this trend wrong, I will continue to pick her to win a medal in Championship races.
