This is the wife, again. I am on a bit of a rant about the Olympic coverage in the U.S. You would think that with 4-5 channels available to NBC, we would get to see everything like we did with the Summer Olympics. Such is not the case! We are not getting to see complete events, especially some of the trials. As you have probably noticed, I am an Olympic-aholic. There is not an event I do not enjoy. I want to see everything, because when it is over, it's over. Watching on the computer is not the same for me. I want to see all the competitors, not just the favorites to win. Half the fun is in seeing the 'underdogs' represent their countries out of pride, not because they expect a medal. There have been many firsts, like Turkey and the Philippines in Figure Skating. Enjoy!
