The second code example doesn't block the thread; it blocks the rest of the method until the call has completed. The low-level thread is freed up to deal with other work until the ToListAsync call completes.

Think of it like a car journey: in the first sample, your kids (the thread) spend the whole time yelling "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" until you reach your destination; with the second sample, they get on with reading a book quietly until you tell them you've arrived. One of those scenarios makes for a much nicer journey. Wink | ;)
