    NBC sucks. Live olympics happening and reruns of Ninja Warrior is on NBCSN.

    Have to stream actual Olympics.

    Are they trying to act like yesterdays opening ceremony is actually live, so they won't show any sports.

    I hate when the Olympics are on the other side of the world. Where can I watch live events?

    What is wrong with watching taped events?

    I can see some people would not like it if they know the results. Personally, that doesn't bother me. I will still watch even if I know the results.

    I just prefer to watch my sporting events live.

    I watch as much live as I can, but I'll watch all taped I can too.

    Our mixed doubles curling team took a 6-4 loss to China yesterday morning, but rebounded in the evening to beat Norway 10-3.

    Lost again this morning to Finland 7-5.

    I‘ve always been fancinated with the courage and skill it takes to complete a luge run. Laying on one’s back speeding down that curvy track. Whew! One mistake in a curve and it’s not a pretty ending. Of course, that could also be said about many of these Winter Olympic events such as down hill skiing, ski jumping, bobsledding, etc. Having the skill to do it is one thing but having the nerve and courage to do it is another element.

    I wish another broadcast company would get a turn to show the Olympics, NBC has sucked at it for years.

    The lack of coverage is staggering...why not air it live on NBCSN all day, why is NHL Hockey on NBC instead of the Olympics this afternoon?
