Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

is it only in the stadium? cuz it wasn't at the field. It was an announcer over a PA, not the same as last year which is what most people meant

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

Am I the only one who thought the commentators last year were annoying? When the one lady mentioned going "balls to the wall" on the last run of Helen on steroids, the other commentator flipped and goes "OH MAH GAWD THERE ARE FAMILIES WATCHING THIS! I APOLOGIZE ON BEHALF OF ALL THE WEENIES HERE!" .. I'd rather have silence in the booth and listen to Castro screaming out how all the athletes are doing.

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

Patrik- Chill bro! haha,

if you watched any of the footage from regionals, it was really well done, and i imagine it will be at least as good as the regionals once they are back at the HDC
