Chaz,
As I and others have pointed out earlier in the thread, there are plenty of options for viewing the Olympics besides what NBC shows during their prime time coverage. But I guess just bitching about stuff is all you want to do.

Banks, how are you watching it? I don't want to sign up for a years worth of satellite in order to be able to watch it over the internet.

I have no TV and I don't want one. I just wanted to watch this event and was hoping that there was a way.

John and others,
NBCSports Network, MSNBC, USA have shown the events live during the last two weeks. You can watch live online at NBCSports.com If you don't have cable/satellite, you can use the Google Chrome Hola extension which acts like a VPN(Virtual Private Network) and lets you access the CBC and BBC feeds. There are tons of sites that pirate the broadcasts and stream them live, Google is your friend for those.

I think its a great idea cutting the NHL out. Hard to figure how you'd set the terms of involvement but if you could figure it out, I bet it would make for a better competition. Thats when Latvia gets gold.

Ukraine protesters take control of capital in what president calls 'coup'


BY MARIA DANILOVA AND YURAS KARMANAU, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FEBRUARY 22, 2014 8:55

Anti-government protesters celebrate in central in Kiev on February 22, 2014. The regime of Ukraine's president appeared close to collapse on February 22 as the emboldened opposition took control of central Kiev and key government and parliament positions and voted to immediately free its jailed leader Yulia Tymoshenko.

KIEV, Ukraine - Protesters took control of Ukraine's capital Saturday, seizing the president's office as parliament voted to remove him and hold new elections. President Viktor Yanukovych described the events as a coup and insisted he would not step down.

After a tumultuous week that left scores dead and Ukraine's political destiny in flux, fears mounted that the country could split in two a Europe-leaning west and a Russian-leaning east and south.

Parliament arranged the release of Yanukovych's arch-rival, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who was on her way to Kyiv to join the protesters.

This is hilarious! They're moving with lightning speed while Putin is neutered with his pretense of peaceful statesmanship. Surely there is some behind the scenes CIA type stuff going while Vlad the Impaler is handing out gold medals.

Thanks Banks. I tried some of the pirate sites. the video and sound syncing is off, and the video is choppy, making watching speed sports difficult and not very enjoyable. That comes with not having the best dsl, and the feed coming from overseas. ( as I understand it ) NBC sports broadcast in america has a decent feed, but on some programs they have a 20 minute allowance and on others a 5 minute allowance. Then you have to delete your cookies and cache and start over. Not a very fun way to watch. I just wanted to pay a fee without signing up for a years worth of something that I wouldn't use and get a decent feed.

You're up early!

The most interesting part of the Olympics is done now. It was the curling.

I agree with the person who said it's an opportunity to watch not so common sports. Sports like football (soccer, that is) & ice hockey is rather boring.
