That is what their other cable channels are for. NBC's coverage has been horrible. Commercials interrupted by the events.

Actually, it wasn't in my opinion. Barbara Fusar-poli/Maurizio Margaglio from Italy made a comeback to these Olympics with only ONE thought: GOLD!! They were SOOOOOO disappointed in 2002 when they only received bronze!
They had worked a year only for these olympics and they wanted that gold! Everything was looking great after the compulsory when they were at first place. But then came that awful night where "everyone" fell during Original Dance! And so did they....
It was Maurizio's "fault" that they fell down cos he couldn't lift her they way planned.... He stubled and the they were down. The look on Barbara's face said it all. If looks could kill.... I could almost hear them "talking" in silence
Barbara: It was your fault
Maurizio: I know, I'm sorry
Barbara: I will never forgive you
Maurizio: I'm sorryyyyyyyyy
Poor Maurizio, Barbara is known with having a great temper, but that was like she was crucifiding him and all he could do was just stand there and take it. Barbaras look was filled with dissapointment and disbelief

And, to make thing worse. Maurizio also fell in 2002 during their free dance, so you can imagine what he was thinking.

Congrats, to Finlands Hockey team, unfortunately the USA had to be on the losing end of it.

I really wish the USA team would have handled their self better after the loss. Instead of blaming one another they should give credit to the Finns for playing a great game.

I have been dissapointed during the Olympics with some of the U.S athletes for bad sportsmanship.

Today the Canadian women won 2 gold medals (1 each in speedskating and cross-country skiing) and 2 silver medals (2 in speedskating). So far, the women have won 14 of our 18 medals to date. So, I know what you are going to say - women have to work twice as hard as men to get the same recognition. Well, our male atheletes have taken this to heart and graciously and magnamously allowed the women atheletes to work 5 times harder than them. To think that the men are forgoing their chance on the podium to let our sisters shine in the spotlight - kinda gets you right there.

The men have a gold or silver coming to them in curling as they are in finals but they the rest of them have to step up their game cause the farer sex is carrying the mail for Canada. Any other countries having this female sucess over the males or is it more even or the reverse? I realize that the competition is not the same in their respective events.

I don't know about the States. It seems fairly mixed I think. We didn't exactly field the best olympic team this time around IMO. The male speed skaters, and the ski team seem more interested in themselves than the team.


Canada did really well with overall medal count, they set a new record total for themselves. However, the Hockey team lost.

Yeah - the hockey team lost but truthfully many people here did not think that they had enough team preparation time before the Olympics - in fact they had none at all and just got together for the 1st time in Turin - because of the NHL schedule - that should not happen next time.

I saw an article online about our team in the States, and they are whining about just that. Also, they had to take care of their own arrangements to get to the Olympics. We shouldn't be sending NHL players to the Games in the first place.

Agreed - but if the NHL allows them to compete for their countries, Canada and US would be at a disadvantage in the Games if they went strictly with amateurs or non-pros against basically NHL stars. The NHL has to allow at least 2 weeks or 1.5 weeks off before the games so that all the Olympic teams can get in some practice before the Games. I think in Canada's case this time we had a lot of good players who declined to participate and we had maybe too many veteran older players.

No no no, Finland's hockey team ALSO got together in Torino! They arrived in different times. Some were still in USA/Canada when some were already rehearsing in Torino. So you can't blame only that.... Finland has also NHL players in their team and so does Sweden! But this is sports, you have to worlk at each game and never underestimate any team.

And Finland made it to the Curling final, so CANADA, we'll see you there

When did the Olympics start allowing professionals in? Has it always been the case?
