Heating up the track

The track & field at this Olympics has been stretched way too thin. It used to last about 7 days, but now it's 10. So, in order to fill in the extra time, we're getting a lot of evening time heats.

I know the real afficianados love the heats too, but to me semi-finals and finals are the only races that belong in prime-time. Last night's program wasn't too bad, but if I had paid big money to see Tuesday night's evening session I'd have felt cheated. There was virtually nothing of importance going on. So many womens' 200m heats.
