Oh please stop with the corny rapping!! Ouch

There's also another Comcast-Xfinity on that keeps airing where some kid and a guy are screaming back and forth. Insanely annoying!

Sounds so confrontational.

Did they show the little BLM bitch who placed third in throwing hammers and then turned her back during the national anthem?

She could use some confrontation.

(C)rap "music" always sounds angry, aggressive and confrontational.

True, but wanting people to watch the Olympics doesn't seem to warrant confrontation.

Most of the stuff (c)rap "music" (c)raps about doesn't warrant confrontation. 

But that doesn't stop it from occurring.

What a bunch of noise!  It doesn't make me want to watch.  Spectrum has a monopoly in these parts yet I can't get their service here.

Well, if it's all about identity (as it seems it's supposed to be these days), notice there's all of one white male in the commercial. That's out of about 34 identifiable people in the commercial. He appears for a split second at around the 4 second mark.

NBC carries the Olympics, and is owned by Comcast as well.

Well - now that the Olympics won't have an audience, making the telecast a lot less exciting to watch, all this overwrought rapping *really* seems out of place. Hoping they'll replace this with something else immediately.

Sports without fans is...well, just stupid. I dunno how they're gonna pull this off.

Wait! What do I care? I wasn't gonna watch anyway.

I wasn’t going to watch either, however, I do feel badly for all the athletes who trained so hard to represent their country!

So now they've been running a new ad where people try - badly - to sing along with the John Williams Olympic theme. This may be even worse than the rapping ad. 

But the best part is the beginning, when a young girl is doing that stupid "I'm talking to my remote" thing, and I know she's saying "Show me the Olympics" but to me it really sounds like "SHOVE the Olympics." I couldn't agree more.

It looks like EVERY commercial that plays this Olympics is going to be woke and PC and inclusive and all about sunshine and picnic baskets and unicorns and kittens and rainbows while singing around the campfire holding hands and singing Kumbayah.

I had these Opening Ceremonies on briefly last night, yeah I noticed that also! 
And there were a TON of commercial breaks in the short time I had this on.  I ended up turning it off..

Wow.. no words. Dead
Nice brief shot of the Philly skyline...except for the part of the two massive, tallest skyscrapers here, both Comcast Towers. They received a nice generous tax cut for putting them up here also. F'ers!

Haven't watched a minute of it since it started. It ain't "The Olympics" when competitors can be pulled straight out for positive COVID tests. That makes the competition, may I say, easier?
I'll come back in 2022 when the Bejiing Winter Olympics begin.
And no fans, either...IOC and Japanese officials finalized that. And an hour's worth of commercials during any gold-medal game(s). You can thank NBC for that. They've botched and destroyed the Olympics for a long time. Remember when they interrupted the London Closing Ceremonies to air the pilot of a dumb sitcom called 'Animal Practice' with a veterinarian and a chimp? 

Up north, the CBC does a much better job covering any Olympics events.
Summer 2021...where being scared of COVID is out, and embracing rodeos, fairs, yard sales, and family time is back in. ;-)

A ton of commercial breaks? You sure it wasn't two tons? That's NBC, screwing every broadcast of the (Summer) Olympiad since 1988, and Winter Olympiad since 2002...
How many times did Liberty x4 my a$$ play? Confused

Imagine what the backlash would be if one of the more famous athletes test positive.

NBC has decent personalities for their coverage. I don't mind the human interest stuff and all that, the commercials are a bit excessive. They even did it for their soccer coverage. You don't ever see that for FIFA and the European tournaments. 

I haven't seen CBC's coverage yet.

I watched 10 minutes of fencing on Sunday. (No idea why). The US woman won the Gold, she was damn cute too I thought. I flicked on USA channel when I usually watch Law & Order reruns, it's all Olympics coverage, forgot that's owned by NBC/Comcast. Confused

And then there's all the damned personal dramas. Plus, it seems the only people competing this time around are black females. If I have to see one more news item in my news feed about Simone Biles abs or how cute she and her bf look together in their swimsuits, I'm gonna puke.

Not that I'd watch, anyway. Not since I was a kid.

I hate the Olympics. Always have.

I was hoping they'd be cancelled due to COVID this year.

The only downside to that for me, would be that they'd probably reschedule them for a non-Olympic year and my suffering would merely be delayed.

I laugh every time I hear about one of these precious turds being disqualified or having to drop out for some reason. 

Ha ha!!!!! Have fun wallowing in the tattered remnants of your crushed dreams, bitches!!!!!! 

 LOL LOL LOL

I hope that severe weather system that's churning off the coast of Japan moves inland and causes them to shut it all down!!!!  

I HATE THE OLYMPICS!!!!!! Angry Angry Angry

LOL
