I also appreciate Channel 4 for the daily interviews they've done with the athletes in the run-up to the games, it's been fascinating to hear from them, and to get a sense of all the years of training that goes into what we now see on screen.

So I figured since NBC won't be airing much of the Paralympics I had to find other ways to catch up on the games. I found a few websites and stuff that I think other people might be interested in looking at too. Also, from what I can tell, NBC never even created a website for the Paralympic games. I'm becoming increasingly more and more disgusted with them (even though sometimes I feel like I'm sounding like a broken record, I can't help but be outraged).

Team USA's Paralympic website
http://www2.teamusa.org/US-Paralympics.aspx

A youtube channel devoted to showcasing some of the talents on the US team
http://www.youtube.com/user/USParaly...?feature=watch

I'm still trying to find more places that are covering the games, so if anyone has suggestions that would be brilliant! Also, who else saw my boy Oscar Pistorious break the world record in the T44 200m? It was fantastic! Major props to Jason Smyth as well... what a great run!

I missed the T44 200m final sadly but it's great Oscar won as people didn't think he would. I have to say the fact that someone's classification can be changed just days before their event seems unfair.

That's a shame.
I actually have two channels that have the Paralympics live: TDN and ESPN. It's kinda ironic but I can't complain. And props to all in London they actually have the stadium full.

Seriously, the Paralympic games deserve to be on tv. I'd rather watch the games than half of the stupid crap that NBC decides to put on tv, or any channel for that matter. The olympics are the olympics. Such a shame honestly.
