NBC today, decided to show, in it's entirety, the mens volleyball gold medal game, between Russia and Brazil.....BUT, YESTERDAY...they waited until 11:30 PM, to show the girl's gold medal game, between Brazil and USA, and then just showed a small edited portion.....WHY?...was it because USA won the first set handily, then Brazil in a miraculous comeback, won the match, on three straight sets....I thought the Olympics was about sportsmanship and performance, not being a homer.....You still have to feel bad for all those kids out there, that never got a chance to see any of it.....SHAME ON NBC AND THEIR CORPORATE GREED.....
