Day 4: What's On

IAAF Preview:
"Another big day, with six finals but it is on the qualification round of one event that 1 billion Chinese will be concentrating, and that’s because of the presence of Liu Xiang."
That NBC is not all over his story means they are still in the thrall of 2003-Iraq-War thinking, where flag-waving jingoism rivaling that of the Nazis is a must and any foreigner is immediately waved off as unimportant at best but most likely planning to murder us all. And if you think that way, why exactly have you paid such a princely sum to cover the most international event the world has yet created? Or merely have you no balls at all?
