NBC OLYMPICS HOME PAGE
Complete Olympic Schedule (Presumably updated with Results)
OOPS I got up so late and now I forgot to put SPOILER in the Headline....
Can you please put SPOILER in the headline.
I was in a noisy sports bar last night and couldn't hear what the reaction was to the Danish athletes in the openning ceremony. Anyone can tell me what happened, if anything?
Well since the events are going to happen before they are broadcast it will allow us to discuss as results come in with a warning to those who can some how avoid to find out the results with the internet.
Maybe I'm an idiot, but what was wrong with the city name "Turin", as in "Shroud Of.."
The two first Gold medals go to GERMANY.
20km Biathlon won by Michael Greis, followed by the two Norwegians Ole Einar Björndalen and Halvard Hanevold. Georg Hettich won the Nordic Combination ahead of Austrian Felix Gottwald and Norwegian Magnus Moan.
In Italian the city is called Turino
They didn't call the Greek Olympics the Games in Athena.
NY POST has a good TV SCHEDULE that requires no formatting, just cut and paste : ))

KC Boutiette is skating next but the race is over 6 minutes so hold on tight : )
Looks like he's only in 5th place after 7 laps.
It seems the NBC results site is not up to par. Now its not reloading.
Thank you for this thread. I love the Olympics.
We will have a daily live thread. Enjoy : )
