Sorry for the late notice about this, but the annual NBC coverage of Ironman from Kona airs this afternoon on NBC. (Check local listings, as they say.) The show is 2 hours instead of 1.5 hours this year because NBC thought that Lance Armstrong was going to be racing back when they scheduled this. Doing the TV show in October instead of later in the year was also because they thought Lance was going to be racing. Of course, after his doping problems he wasn't part of the race but we still get the longer, more timely tv show because of him.
