anyone else watch the final two stages of Paris-Nice this weekend? can OLN possibly put any more commercials on? i finally started timing it, and they were averaging a commercial break every 4 to 5 minutes of race coverage. i think i saw more of captain morgan and the beach party than i did the race. pretty crappy.

That's why I record it and FF through the commercials. I swear, if I had to watch one more Lincoln Navigator commercial during the TDF, I would've shot someone.!!!!!! :) -nmcydswipe

you loose some interesting moments of the race I wish they'd time commercials better. Last year I watched Vuelta on TVE it was still more exciting with my middle school spanish then 40 something Navigator commercials an hour. I swear I will never I mean never buy or rent one, even if that's all they have to rent.
Will we see the same ones all season? Also, Bob Roll commentms

Commercials are a necessary evil. No commercials, no broadcast. However, it drives me crazy when OLN runs the same commercial over and over again. The echos of the Lincoln Navigator tune from last year in the new offspring Lincoln ads almost caused me to scream. Aside from the ads, I liked the Paris-Nice coverage (I only saw the weekend races). I though that the Sherwen-Roll combination worked well. Was a dreaming or did Bob Roll actually say Tour DUH France a few times instead of his usual Tour DAY France? And, yesterday, he seemed to correct his pronunciation of the Promenade des Anglais.
