I am currently writing from Okinawa City, Japan. I'm sitting in my hotel room after my shift at work thinking. I'm thinking about how when I left my hotel this morning, there was Judo coverage on two channels. I got back to my hotel and there is still Olympic Judo coverage on as I speak.
It's amazing to watch. What I'm witnessing right now is some of the most technical grappling I've ever seen. Now I could be wrong, but before I left I heard that NBC was cutting Judo out of the events it was going to cover. If this is true, it is truly a travesty of epic proportions. I wish that all MMA fans could watch what I am watching right now. I think that any true fan of the sport, or any combat sport for that matter could use a refresher on the technicality and precision that these athletes use. As well as get a better understanding of the sport of MMA as a whole.
Since I'm gone until after the games are over, could somebody let me know if NBC is or is not covering Judo. And if they are...I encourage everybody to watch it.
