Watch the FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships Online Free TV

If you want to see some mad skills by human shelties focused on chasing the moving object, check out the world championships of inline hockey live online. As we've discussed variously, USA cable television seems not to want to show many sports, no matter what they say. They'd rather show whatever gets rankings of course, and is cheap to produce. Some sports jealously guard the rights to their programming, making sure no one in the USA at least can see it. Others realize they need to let people see it to enjoy it (or not) and to build some demand (or not) for watching their sport.

So here's a link:

Shani Davis Wins Silver and Gold in Speed Skating World Championships; Tyler Farrar leads Tirreno-Adriatico Cycling Stage Race

 

Just some quick notes here to remind that the World Single Distance Championships are under way in speed skating (they seem to like to have several kinds of world championships, ha!), and the Tirreno-Adriatico cycling race started yesterday with a team time trial. I followed the T2A (as we roadskaters might dub it) in past years and found it very entertaining, through territory reminiscent of the mountains of NC as I recall.

Celebrate Good Times Or Maybe Push to the Finish

Don't read the link too carefully before you click or...OK it is hopeless to see the video without knowing what happened. But you can see how it happened. This happened to me at a2a once. I ended up losing by 4 hours 20 minutes! http://colombiareports.com/colombia-news/sports/12652-colombian-skater-c...
