    Anyone in the U.S. getting Olys on NBC today?

    We have NASCAR (AKA rednecks driving in circles) on until 6pm. Is this a regional thing? Any of you in the U.S getting Olys on NBC today?

    Across the river they're showing hockey.

    We have the Boston NBC station up here, and they're showing the NASCAR, but CBC is showing Olys, so it's all good. Go Cindy Klassen!

    in the morning they showed hockey on NBC, afternoon games are shown on MSNBC. I think USA has some coverage currently too.

    We got hockey and curling on the cable channels. I'm not a hockey fan, but curling is becoming quite mesmerizing. The US men's team is pretty good, too.

    Anyone else disappointed in NBC's coverage? Seems like they are most concerned with ratings (duh) and not really caring about giving solid coverage of the events. Usually when the Olympics are happening you can turn the TV on anytime and see something Olympic-related....NASCAR on Sunday seems so wrong when they could have shown the dance skaters live. Oh well.

    I'm sure it had to do with contract obligations...NBC had the Daytona 500 to begin with and they couldn't just ditch it to show the Olys.

    Doesn't that track for one of those races remind you of what the Equestrian team has to do?

    I hope Equestrianguy come in and announces, they stole it from us.

    Excuse me - NOT ALL NASCAR FANS ARE REDNECKS - not all of us even live in the Southeast, where THE GREAT AMERICAN RACE is being held. NBC has been advertising that this is the ONLY car race big enough to interrupt the Olympics. For those of us who are NASCAR fans, in addition to figure skating fans, in fact anyone who has been watching NBC's lackluster coverage since February 10th, we have had enough advertisements to make us aware that the Superbowl of stock car racing was going to be held today, and they would interrupt their Olympic Coverage to show the race.

    Congratulations Jimmy Johnson, on winning your 1st Daytona 500. Great showing Dale Jr. - here's hoping for a better season this year, than last. Oh, and congratulations to the Russians for moving into 1st place, during the OD.

    jozmen01 just kidding . My aunt and uncle were actually at the race. Why in the heck didn't they schedule it for a different weekend than the Olys that are only once every four years.

    Did NBC show D/V during their ice dance coverage tonight? If so, I missed it. If not, they should have!!!

    yes they showed them in the same block of time as the Kerrs, C&S and Dominina and Shabalin.

    nasty fall. At least it was at the end and didn't appear as a major disruption.
