Something else I wanted to ask others who watched the game.. did the HD quality of some of the shots look 'less than HD'? I noticed on closeup shots of Bob Costas, for example, that his face looked washed out (like the enhanced SD that NBC used to use for their handheld cameras during golf tourneys) and not all that clear.

I was watching the game on 2 side-by-side HDTV's (one 720p and the other 1080p) and noticed the same on both of them.
