    Can we discuss the incompetence of NBC sports here?

    Their Olympic website is impossible to navigate. Every time I try to check the figure skating TV schedule, they show the speed skating schedule. Yeah, both of them have "skating" in their names. I have to wonder if this site was built by CGI... :x

    This doesn't help much, but the men's short program team competition is being shown on a tape delay sometime between 8:00 pm and 11:00 pm tonight. http://www.nbcolympics.com/results-schedule

    Last night we had 20 seconds on the downhill. Over 1 hour on snowboarding and 1 hour on skating.

    Here's a good men's hockey schedule. Not necessarily a TV schedule, because some kinds will probably be delay-only and some will probably be live ET but not the other zones.

    I have been led to believe that the gold medal game will be live everywhere, meaning an 04:00 start.

    Now, if I can just find the curling timetable…..

    I have vivid memories watching it as a teenager and it's my all-time favorite Winter Olympic moment. Here's what Klammer said afterwards:

    “I thought I was going to crash all the way. I gave myself terrible frights.”

    15 minutes into this evening and yak,yak,yak. Then we have a POTUS interview? Puleeeez! They are using the "morning team 4 the ceremonies. The same crew that deals with stay at home housewives. Tells me tons. But I love Carillo.
