Here We Go Again

True to form, the initial HD coverage of the Olympics looks like ass on NBC. Maybe they're saving their HD cameras for the real events, and just covering everything tonight with widescreen SD cams. I have to wonder why. They've also been crowing about DD5.1 all evening, but so far no affiliate in the DC area have it turned on.

I'm not impresssed.

EDIT: The one thing that really bugs me, aside from the piss-poor HD and bad sound, is that the announcers harping on each countries political problems as the athletes parade in the opening ceremony. Aren't sports supposed to trancend all this political bullshit? Why point it out at every turn?
