Travace,you pretty much summed it up. All though great to watch and the atheletes are awesome It's just one more thing that has got way commercialized and ESPN and Speed channel seem to dick everything up.Your right about them trying play shit off like it was yeaterday. They sure cut out a lot of prelims.Everything I saw went right to the finals. Rally car is not a extreme sport and shouldn't even be there but theres part of commercialized crap. Luge was probably cut out in the second or third year of the games and wake boarding should probably be there. All in all it was great to see though when your not riding or football aint on.
