Speaking of delays in live coverage, right now I'm watching the 
Patriots with Gil Santos & Gino's audio on WBCN.  Why the heck is the 
audio about 8 seconds behind the video?  Did they fail to turn off 
the phone-in delay when they went to the live game?

Makes it extremely frustrating to watch the game with the proper 
announcers (i.e., NOT NBC network announcers!)
