Olympic Tennis Coverage
« on: June 03, 2012, 01:49:11 PM »
BRAVO will be covering Olympic tennis in the US.  Does anyone know who the commentators might be?  I was disappointed with the Beijing coverage.  If Jimmy Arias, one of the most crabby and whiny-voiced commentators ever, is doing it again, I may not be able to watch.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that some of the upper-tier commentators might do it this time.

Wow, it's just absurd Bravo tv broadcasting live tennis matches. I think they should have regular commentators, those that they have it over Grand Slams. However, a comic relief won't really harm the match. I suggest Craig Ferguson, with his scottish accent, as a guest commentator.

I hate the American accent when the 'r' is over subdued. British accent is the best, especially Scottish.

No one is forcing you to watch American Channels...... I am sure you have your own channels in your own language where you dont have to worry about accents........... over subdued r.... big deal......

English is my 'own language' but American accent sounds monotonous as a trip in the desert. Can't a man proffer his opinion without being reprimanded !! And its not as if I am posting this in the wrong place !!
