I am amazed on how much work it takes to to a live webcast, including the crew, equipment, and more behind the scenes.  It isnt just one camera and one computer, it is a multitude of people, equipment, and announcers plus line costs and more to get it done correct.   

And when you deal with convention centers, the cost goes up even more.

Thanks for giving the people who can't make it to Los Angeles a view of what is going on.

Well.. thanks to bb.com for providing the resources and money to have these live webcasts for us. 

With the lighting at the Ironman probably the best contest lighting out there, and lots of emerging stars for us to check out, it usually is one of my favorite shows of the year... of course, it also means I don't have to travel far for it too (I live in Los Angeles area).

See you there!
