|Has a buttom for a link to live coverage of the elite women and men, but it goes no where. Seeing as the elite women are finished by now and the men's race should be in progress, I'd assume something went snafu with their plans.|

|That's kinda what I thought, but I remember last year their was a live radio feed that you could get over the net. I listened to the whole thing last year. The announcers were terrible, everything was, "OH, THE INSANITY!!!!!" but it at least let me know what was going on. Oh well.|

|a live audio feed this year. That announcer is Richard Freis (sp ?) from New England, he's on the OLN summer sport zone show also. He did the announcing when nationals were in Baltimore as well. He's dreadful, somebody needs to tell him that yelling into the mic doesn't make for a good listen.|

|Richard Fries does a great job.
He's passionate and he knows what he's talking about.
He really gets the crowd into it.

|opinions are like...
I'm sure you know the rest. I'm sure Richard is knowledgable, but I think his style sucks. I'm sure he does get a crowd into it but he's just way too over the top for me. And listening to the web broadcast last year of nats it was nearly impossible to figure out what was going on. For enthusiasm he gets an A+++++, for play-by-play an F.
