I know it was an example to set the rules in the OP, but seriously Kelly Baraka IS the greatest high school player I've ever seen play live in person (so, technically for me he does count). Gary and Clowney were close, though, at that level in terms of pure dominance. It's a damn shame.

I think a lot of people would love to read your elaboration on why Bolt is the one that is beyond comprehension.

Again with the group think mentality. Some people do think in terms of people as individuals and not groups, believe it or not.

Might not the "natural allies" but, unless you have specific knowledge about this specific individual, all you are basing that on is an assumption of group think (which could be completely right OR completely wrong). Thus the "So...? What?".

Huge silver in the 5000m for the US, as well. First medal of any type in that even for an American man since the 1960s.

You know that there was no reliable breath test available to test for alcohol intoxication when alcohol was made legal to use, but illegal to use while operating a vehicle, right?

Indiana is an open carry state (which allows for both concealed and openly carried handguns). Still need a permit for that, though...

I guess, but runners get people asking them if the are "going for a jog" all the time. It's just an annoying word; everyone has a word that annoys them...

I always wonder why people choose to use "jogging" instead of "running". As a runner, that's one of the most annoying words out there.

Phelps won multiple different disciplines, so I don't see how he is deficient in (1).

We got the Roku when we flirted with the idea of cutting the cable/dish because Roku offered SlingTV and Amazon Video and AppleTV didn't at the time (the new AppleTV now offers Sling (and thousands of other apps whereas the prior versions did not offer choosable app downloads - you just got the apps they gave you) but still not Amazon Video). The NBC sports app previously mentioned is on the new AppleTV (we still have the prior generation AppleTV and watch the NBC sports app on the Roku, so that's why I said Roku in an earlier post). If you're already Apple integrated, AppleTV is the better choice since you can mirror content from your phone/computer to the AppleTV, but can't with the Roku, which would allow you to watch anything on the AppleTV on your AppleTV as long as there is an iPhone app for it. Roku was superior to the prior generation AppleTV because of the ability to choose apps, but I think the current AppleTV leveled that playing field with the exception of Amazon video. Usability is about the same, so I think now it more or less comes down to whether someone is an "Apple person" or not.

Yeah man, no problem. Truly wasn't meaning to be a jerk, but it probably came across that way. Enjoy! The apps is pretty awesome. You can go back and watch all of the events in their entirety (all rounds), which is pretty sweet.

I was thinking the same thing. Why spend the extra money if you're not going to use it for the things it's excellent at? We have both an AppleTV and a Roku (connected to separate TVs) and I've honestly wondered many times at how completely different TV was before these devices.

In that case you should be able to download the NBC Live Extra app directly to your TV. Even easier.

And if you think that's still asking too much, I'll just rebut that with the fact that my five year old can easily operate the Roku. It really doesn't get any easier.

This is a joke, right? You CAN EASILY watch it on your TV. Live and in better quality than through your cable provider. It's called a Roku. Many new flat screens come with it pre installed or you can pick one up for about $60. It's something that many (most?) "regular consumers" have access to. Frankly there's no secret whatsoever that NBC bases their television strategy on packing in prerecorded content into the prime time slot to maximize ratings (and a lot of people do like that) and that if you want the live experience then they provide ways to do that. They've literally provided easily accessible options for both sets of people.

They talked about it earlier in the coverage before the race. He (apparently, they did a study on it) doesn't actually have additional acceleration after the first 30 meters. The difference is that he doesn't slow down after that point like the others do. Damn impressive.
