I have yet to see any curling coverage on NBC primetime. Its like they wont acknowledge it even exists???

It's on CNBC right now, Mr. Deberg_1990. Since it's the most viewed Olympic sport on television, so I'm pretty sure that, in future, the carrying network will modify its programming schedule to include Curling in prime-time.

Actually, though, the whole damn schedule this year is kind of strange. The best stuff seems to be on during the day. Maybe that's because the games are in Vancouver and not in a city where night is day here and day is night here and vice-versa here or there. Like, for example, the skiing people can't really ski at night because they can't see the gates or the moguls or each other and can get lost during their runs and very possibly might hit a rock or a tree which would be damn good tv but not so good for the athletes except for the Curlers and the skaters who perform indoors where they have lights unless there's a power outage in which case you hope there are back-up generators or lots of batteries on hand, so they have to show the skiers live during the day and via tape at night unless the skiing people are skiing in Beijing where our prime-time is their morning. It's all about time cubism.

Tonight ought to be interesting, Ohno vs the entire nation of South Korea (or at least 3 of them) in 1000m. I never realized this, but apparently South Korea really, really, really hates Ohno.

http://www.nbcolympics.com/king/news/newsid=430451.html

Apolo Ohno may be feted at home for his Olympic feats but he's better known in South Korea as the "king of fouls."

The American short track speed skater, who goes up against the South Koreans again when he races for a historic seventh Winter Olympics medal in Canada on Saturday, may well be the athlete South Koreans hate the most.

Online bulletin boards are plastered with posts cursing the 27-year-old.

One company once sold toilet paper emblazoned with Ohno's face: Ohno joyfully winning the gold, Ohno kissing his medal, Ohno laughing. One video game features an Ohno character you can shoot in the head, and to call something "Ohnolike" is to deride it as a dirty trick.

...

The animosity toward Ohno grew so heated that the entire American short track team withdrew from a World Cup event held in South Korea in 2003, citing death threats against Ohno. In 2005, the athlete traveled in South Korea, reportedly under the guard of police.

...

Incensed gold medalist Lee Jung-Su criticized Ohno as "too aggressive" in a post-race news conference.

"Ohno didn't deserve to stand on the same medal platform as me," he told Yonhap. "I was so enraged that it was hard for me to contain myself during the victory ceremony."

...

If he wins, Ohno will become the most decorated American in Winter Olympics history.

But at least one blogger hopes to see him fall flat on his face: "He should fall down on the ice and have (figure skater) Kim Yu-na land on his disgusting face after she performs a triple axel."

More NBC fluff. F**k, you morons, just show some highlights from the B-roll of today's events! Hockey, curling, whatever. Why do they feel the need to ONLY show the big sports, and ONLY show the Americans? The Olympics should just tell the networks to f**k off and set up their own channel. Every two years it goes full-bore Olympics, and the rest of the time they can show qualifying events, big events in the respective Olympic sports, etc.,. More than enough stuff to fill the time. Hell, the NFL and MLB have 365-day channels...

Yep, the only way the other Hamelin wouldnt have gotten the bronze is if they decide they were team-racing, and short of a full wrap-around tackle thats impossible to prove. It isnt hard at all to have an "accident" big enough to make sure you take him out.

Kinda like a hard foul late in the game on a guy going for the dunk to make sure he has to earn it with free throws. Sure, they could call an intentional foul but its not hard to look like your going for the ball or the block.

I was born in Boston, and live in Providence. What do you think, LOL?

Although I'm not that nuts about baseball. (And I don't like that MLB has no salary cap; in recent years, the Red Sox have been little better than the MFYs. When you have teams spending $150M-200M and other teams spending 1/2 or 1/4 of that, it's really hard to get too excited when your team wins. "Yay! We rock! We spent shitloads more than you, woo hoo!" Meh. Cap the thing and level the playing field a bit.) But I do follow the Sox mainly 'cause there ain't much else to do during the summer. It's a good slow lazy summer game to enjoy, if you don't get high blood pressure over it, which I don't. Whether they win or lose doesn't keep me up at night, especially since they won in '04 and again in '07.

You dont have to feel sorry for the rest of the world. This olympics was front-loaded with events we would do well in, between the snowboarding stuff, alpine, speed skating, etc. We probably have about 4 more guaranteed medals between ice dancing and speed skating.

It'll be a struggle to hang on to that medal count lead because theres a lot more medals coming next week, and we arent going to win anything more in the X-country, curling, biathlon, freestyle skiing, sliding kind of events (maybe 1 or 2 in men's bobsled and aerials?)

Ovechkin is the best player in hockey and it's not close.

Shove that Crosby garbage, Ovechkin would deke him out of his shorts, then turn back around and run him over for good measure.

I'd trade any 4 players off the Blues for him (pro or minors), and the Blues have the #1 ranked farm system in hockey...
