What, the inane and jingoistic nonsense American networks call "international coverage" doesn't do it for you?

Not that our sports broadcasting hasn't been going downhill for quite some time. Since the CBC can't afford to keep the rights to anything...

Is NBC still doing that thing were they don't show stuff live?

Yep and they don't allow streaming of the opening or closing ceremonies.

Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

Someone record and post here lol. I don't watch TV so I don't have cable or anything and my Internet is too slow for streaming Sad

I have laughed, in bitterness and agony of heart, at the contrast between what I seem and what I am!

RE: SOCHI!
Our coverage isn't the absolute greatest either, I wish we saw more international footage as well.

But, in Russia, they (Rossiya 1) cut whole parts of the opening ceremony, such as the snowflake turning into Olympic rings. They claimed they cut it to keep the Olympic spirit alive... they replaced it with shots from the rehearsal of it successfully opening.

At least an enthusiastic truth is better than an out right lie. Shocking

It's hard to post for other countries... this is unavailable here. However, I did see it broadcast here, it was funny! It was pre-opening ceremony.

It was also a little gay, no? Oh Russia! I love you. Big Grin

RE: SOCHI!
Anybody know of a good place to watch online? My favorite is the figure skating.

RE: SOCHI!
I've a question, how popular is Curling in Canada? I'm watching it now, the announcer (?) on tv said that in Canada Curling is almost as popular as Hickey -- that's Hockey not the sucking thing...

I've never watched it for any length of time.

It's rather like Bocci ball or Shuffleboard?
