Bolt and co pulling out havnt helped the event, same with the Indians scheduling test matches vs the Aussies. Also other stuff like scoreboards falling down and overall organistaion stuff ups, have made for poor viewing.
Its sad cos the main stadium where the track n field is being held, is fantastic. The culture and environment are beautiful too, which should have made this games special. Still cant believe how dead the event feels, could see about 5 locals in the womens hockey the other day, not even that.
So yeah i watch it, but im incredibly dissapointed with the way its turned out. The table tennis match between that indian guy and the pom was entertaining (good crowd, they were in to it). Need more of that.
Sad how poorly its turned out
. No buzz at all.
