    Right, but ESPN is telecasting Pan Ams. It's just odd that one network would allow their top talent to work for another broadcaster.

    Does anyone know how Dani Thomas got a yellow card in shot put? I’ve never seen that before.

    With that 38.46 from last night, Trinidad kicked Australia out of the 4x1 qualification rankings for Doha. I wonder if and where the Aussies will make another attempt, currently 38.52 are necessary to qualify.

    No matter who the announcers are, I am loving the amount of field event coverage we get.

    I don't think Winger has ever had a series like that, with six throws over 61 meters and five of the six over 62.

    Speaking of passport name issues, Nikki Hiltz was listed in the results as Dominique Hiltz, which prompted this tweet:

    @Nikki_Hiltz

    Yo who tf is Dominique..?
