Enough Tear Jerking Already

NBC Hawaii Ironman Tugs at Heart Strings

So a relative newbie to triathlon, I've only been watching NBC's Kona production for 3 years. A fantastic production, for sure, but ... and I'm probably going to hell for saying this ... enough with the tear jerking already.

It looks like we're going to be treated to some more stories about every day people overcoming personal adversity etc. etc. etc. etc. Hello, it's the World Championships. They already qualified, presumabably; so what's the big deal. Just getting there ought to have been their biggest hurdle.

Phil Ligget is gone. I'm happy. Love him on TDF, but it didn't sound right last year.

PS: Tacx is foobarred. I've got a call in with Customer Support. Stay tuned.
