Coverage of the Olympics in Argentina

It is quite possible that the Olympics represents the most progress humanity has made to date thus far. Pure competition within the leisure (by that I mean sports and not business) realm between nearly all of the people on Earth. Having been a former swimmer myself and competed on the national and international level for the University of Southern California, I am glued to the television for 2 weeks straight every 4 years. I thought it a crime, however, when TyC and Canal 7 both cut off their coverage abruptly at about 11pm last night--during swimming of course!! What they neglected to show (and which, I admit, they might have shown during the wee hours later last night/Monday morning) was quite possibly the greatest swimming race EVER. I kid you not. EVER. Please watch it: I know that the race itself has nothing to do with Argentina or expats, but I figured that the lesson here is on the expectations of media within Argentina.

As an Argentine expat living in Canada, I have to congratulate you on your blog. It's always refreshing to read a foreigner's point of view of my home country. I've really enjoyed your perception of Argentina and I can only imagine how strange some things must be to you.
I'll be reading you,

It is obvious, that you are not following the Olympics here in the states because if you want to see a particular sport you are out of luck. Besides, it looks like the broadcaster have seen it before making comments and spoiling the competition.

Good luck!
