Embarrassing. Think about if that had happened in a year with franz klammer, one of the great Olympic moments missed by all.
a major disappointment for sure
and the online universalsports video bank is having all video come up "This video is not loading properly", so viewing there is not possible.
Interesting their attempt to add some "Canadian' Flavor to their coverage seems to be spotty at best. Looking at result, Guay placed 5th! A great finish, considering how tight the placings were. Yet, he doesn't qualify as a Canadian even worth mentioning ??? WTF?
I feel bad for the the Vancouver organizers and Canada for the less than half-assed job NBC is doing. Thye deserve much better than that.
I mean, somehow they are finding enough broadcast time to show a great expanse of curling (YOO HOO! not...
) on CNBC and on USA networks. Now, I have nothing against curling, but there can't possibly be a sport with a smaller audience than curling...
We can expect this entire week to have this curling coverage - oh joy
Sadly, prolly the only reason they showed more of the luge was the hope of another accident.
Some how they didn;t ruin all the events. By some miracle both the Women's 10K and Men's 15K XC events had great coverage. ...someone mustta fallen asleep in the broadcast van and let it run... and the mens and womens moguls and snowboardcross got good coverage.
Thankully I can DVR and so 4 hours becomes barely an hour of something worthwhile.
