Separate names with a comma.

From what I have been able to piece together, NBC is not providing an SD feed for these channels.
I'm ok with the track and field commentators, so long as they don't have Carol Lewis with them. She's so astonishingly bad I don't understand how she got the job.
I don't like Bolden, I'd rather they dump him and give Dwight a full-time job.
The other US team is also called by their first names, and they even have their names embroidered on their hats (April and Jen). I have no idea what their last names are.
OMG! Cynthia Potter sounds like Nancy Grace to me-not her fault, of course, she is great at explaining the dives and what the judges are looking for, etc...but that voice! UGH!
I'm watching the semi between Larissa/Juliana and Jen Kessy/April Ross. It seems to me that the announcers refer to the Brazilians 100% of the time by their first names and I'd say refer to the Americans 50% by both names, 40% by last name and only 10% by first name...even though Kevin Wong, at the very least, knows Jen and April personally (since they played in the AVP tour at the same time).
BTW: Before she got married, Jen Kessy's last name was "Boss" and so the team was referred to as "Boss and Ross"...
I can't find a link, but Brazil's indoor volleyball team also goes by their first name. Their uniform even has their first name, not last name. Sunderland explained it, but I forgot what he said.
I couldn't watch diving because of that Nancy Grace voice.
OMG, can someone just gag Tim Ryan? By the time I finish watching any of the equestrian stuff, I feel like my head is going to explode.
I tuned in to watch dressage, not to get the sales history of all the horses, for cryin' out loud.
It's common for all Brazilian athletes to do that. For example, Nene Hilario, who plays in the NBA, professionally simply goes by Nene (and that's the name that's on his jersey).
Funny, I really dislike Nancy Grace but never noticed a similarity to her voice. As I said above, I really like Cynthia Potter.
I was probably a bit hard on Elfie Schlegel above. She's no rock star, but she's a good complement to the broadcast. I really enjoyed listening to her and Daggett tonight. Even Al toned it down!
Something like it's common for Brazilian sport stars to only go by one name - like Pelé.
ETRTS (edited to recognize the smeek): or Nenê
I'm watching the BVB gold medal match (from NBCOlympics.com) streaming in one browser and I have the live scores (from London2012.com) in another. The NBC "live" video stream is consistently about 3 points behind...
I work with a guy whose parents come from Korea, the NBC stream was 3-5 minutes behind the korean stream.
a gold medal for the USA!!!
Way to put yourself out there!
I hope I am right.
I was right
All I can say is Wow! Congrats to the winning team...
Plus, Misty & Kerry is a lot easier than May-Treanor & Walsh-Jennings.
