That was uneventful

I browsed over to ESPN for a break this morning and noticed that the Tour de France was live, and Armstrong was chasing the yellow jersey. So I clicked the link and got their flash based popup that shows the route, a live blog, etc.

However the blog is updated every minute or two, far from "live" action that I've come to expect in most of the gamecenters. Actually most of them lag quite a bit as well, but I was hoping for some audio, maybe animation, something that shows more happening. Instead, having a sentence appear every minute is was from exciting, and is, for the most part, a waste of programming time and bandwidth.
