If you're like me, you were sorely disappointed that NBC withdrew Flotrack's coverage of the Prefontaine 10k last night. I watched the broadcast today on NBC, and still did not see the 5k or 10k. They didn't even have the time to show the entire 2-mile race, or to even cover the new high school record set by Lucas Verzbicas.
We love our sport. We think it deserves prime time coverage and media hype. Maybe if enough of us raise our voices, NBC will hear a call for announcers who can equal fans' enthusiasm for the most widely loved sport in the world.
There is still time before London 2012. Make a difference:
