    Honestly, I'm glad they ruled the 233 as good. A millisecond longer and you'd obviously have had to turn it down, but in the instance where it could basically go either way it makes sense to allow it. Why turn down an otherwise perfectly executed WR lift? Wouldn't do anything good for the sport.

    Actually didn't think about until now that he had another lift to go after that one.

He was doing it a lot already but I think it would be nice to really hear more about the differences between each lifter's style. So we'll see if they use my unsolicited critique :-)

    Westbrook and Boffa both have great voices for broadcast.
    Westbrook and Boffa are both made for announcing. I like Waxman announcing also with JP. Cheryl Haworth has been announcing some sessions also and she makes a good announcer as well. She's doing the 105B session right now with Boffa.

    It has been fun listening to the pronunciations of many of the lifters names.

    Haworth was good. Waxman is excellent. The 2 Drs are alright. I used to like them at first but much prefer JP and Sean these days. Then again, even when they get tiresome they are sooooooo much better than Breeze. At their worst, they are still much better than many though. I'll give them that. It's not they are really bad by any stretch. Just not as good as Waxman and JP.

    Being on the East Coast, these session start times are killing me.

    Can agree, do a degree. The 9 PM EDT and 11 PM EDT sessions are not ideally timed for us on the right coast; timing sucks. However, the 8:30 and 9:00 (EDT) sessions are actually quite perfect: late enough to allow for completion of work, chaperoning kids to/from their athletic endeavors and/or a bit of training time for me, but early enough so as to not completely throw off my sleep and make early-AM training the next day impossible. Better than those Rio middle-of-the-day, how-the-hell-do-I-get-away-with-watching-this-at-work sessions.

    I'm lucky in that we just put it on the TV in the gym and watch while we train/coach.


    I will say, 8 p.m. is a late start time for a session, especially on a week night. I'm usually in bed by 9 or 10 p.m. so I definitely won't be catching the 90A live unfortunately.
