dear networks,
I could tolerate the commercials, but at least show the competitions when there arnt commercials.
I dont care what kinda food the local pub has,
I dont care what athletes Mom does for a living,
I dont care what trial and tribulations someone went through to get tickets, qualify, or participate,

Just show the frikking events.

I know there were a lot of people who were questioning if she could handle the stress of international competition with her lack of experience but, she's a fantastic rider and has had a super season thus far.... and hey, we won't know until she steps in the ring! I actually met her last year and talked with her for several minutes. She's a super sweet kid and I'm rooting for her.

does anyone know the name of the OTTB & rider who are originally from Australia now living in the US (so not sure which team they are riding for) that are in eventing. The horse has beaten so many odds, including being "a throw away" racer with a cribbing habit & a life threatening fire. I would love to follow their story during the Olympics.
