Maybe they'll have a naked Putin wrestle a Polar Bear for the opening in Sochi--hope they don't cut THAT!

They could have cut more out of the program to make it fit the time scheduled.


They could have ... it was their broadcast ... but they arrogantly chose to let us watch some stupid monkey instead.

All during the games we were conditioned to see primetime coverage, followed by local news and then a one or two-hour (can't remember) recap of the day's sporting events. Nothing changed on my EPG that night, except me not reading it on the last night of the Olympics.

Needless to say, I opted not to record that block and was thusly rewarded the next day when I replayed what I thought would be the entire closing ceremony, only to discover they had not shown it that way.

I wonder how many others were equally surprised?

And with that I'll drop out of this conversation.

I think NBC did a damn fine job with the 2012 London Olympics. We Comcast subs even got some additional channels of HD coverage.
