    I told my wife that they are showing the entire 20,000 meter walk on television and I have friend who ran in the men's 10,000 yesterday and I didn't see him on television at all.

    I am usually grateful for any T&F coverage but this is ridiculous... non stop meaningless prattle... no competition..

    If any civilian/novice had a casual curiosity in watching track and field this should kill it.
    I am going to watch something else for an hour and check back.
    Glad I don't get cable anymore...

    Not trashing the walks.. or seeking favor...I admire anyone who can "race walk" like that..just protesting 2 hours of TV time dedicated to a blah, non-competitive "race" when they could have interspersed replay of the entire 10K and several field events.

    We were not blaming you, Becca.
    But as long as you are in the press box, tell someone it was an ill advised (stupid) move.
