Track on TV 2013

Results page. Meet takes place on Saturday, Feb 2

Also, still not happy with Universal Sports not being available on my cable system(Verizon FIOS) and not be able to subscribe to US on its website like in the past.

I still prefer to watch the DL meets on TV versus honkered down around my computer all the time.

Is anyone else surprised by the low star quality of this meet? I realize not many athletes do indoor but this one seems lighter than usual. The so called star might be Mary Cain and no disrespect at all to her but this is supposed to be mainly about the pros. Oh we'll such is the state of track.

No...
There is pretty much one Major/minor world star per event including select few London medalists.

Its an indoor meet, who are you expecting?

By cracky, back in my day, we had a big indoor meet every weekend, FILLED with stars. The indoor season was an end unto itself, and fans jammed the arenas to see them . . . back in my day . . .

But nowa days, seems like fans struggle to figure out which meets will even occur indoors.
