NBC chooses not to schlep to Beijing for badminton

Interesting story from Tribune teammate (for now) Teddy Greenstein about NBC covering some sports in the Olympics the same way many of you do: Watching on TV in New York.

On an entirely different subject, here's a story from our two-rivers-over friends at The Star-Ledger about the potential investment value of the dreaded personal seat license.

I don't have too much to add to ABC's coverage of the British Open, oh, sorry, I mean, "The Open Championship," after Greg Norman's painful, slow-motion fade.

What stood out for me on the broadcast was Paul Azinger's willingness to bluntly criticize Norman's strategy. It was bold, and he turned out to be right.

You hardly ever hear criticism like that of Tiger Woods from network voices. Is that because they are afraid of him, or because he never is wrong? Or both?
