NBC to show men's hoops final live in wee hours
NBC sent a DVD of a feature it produced on that Brazilian dude who got knocked off course by a wacko from the audience while leading the marathon in 2004, then went on to finish third.
I'm assuming it will run during Saturday night's live coverage of the men's marathon from Beijing, where the dreaded smog seems to have ceased to be a story.
Speaking of live stuff from Beijing, NBC will be showing the men's hoops final between the U.S. and Spain as it happens . . . beginning at 2:30 a.m. Eastern Time.
Normally I'm watching TV Land at that hour, but I suppose I could make an exception. I would like to see LeBron dunk on Rafael Nadal, that little pest.
