  • Vote4Incitatus via Disqus · Kudos to NBC to make the broadcast over national TV rather than just their sports network! For us North of the border its great! No TVG, No NBC Sports.. So happy that I can watch it on my big screen and record it rather than watch it over a grainy non HD computer screen trying to stream off some crappy website! I mean this is HUGE! Ya'll read what their prep is like?... Expanded public transportation Additional police at each stop light Giveaways galore etc etc We live in great time to be fans of this sport! · 20 days ago
