I have a hard time hearing the ESPN commentary above the crowd noise. They need a better mix.

It's just ESPN baseball. They have the crowd noise cranked.

He's such a good story teller.    One of the interviews in this episode was with a Viet Minh fighter.    They asked him about winning and losing.    He kind of scoffed and said (paraphrase), "There is no winning or losing.   There is only destruction."

EDIT:    I was reading the Sunday Post and the quote is included in an article on the series:

The Vietnam War is never truly over (and at times it will feel to a viewer like “The Vietnam War” is never over, either), but, as Bao Ninh, a writer who fought for the communist North Vietnamese army, thoughtfully observes in the film’s opening moments:   “It has been 40 years   . . . .   In war, no one wins or loses.      There is only destruction.     Only those who have never fought like to argue about who won and who lost.”

I fully expect Burns to tell a balanced story. I'm really looking forward to it. Have been for months.

The first episode didn't disappoint.

Yep, instant reply officially sucks. They need to make line calls like tennis where it's all electronic.

I thought it hit the line.    Talkin' heads said they didn't see the chalk kick up.    Were you in the N & S Club?     :)
