Yesterday, we got Olympics at one CST on NBC. Today, we got USA at 11 with curling. (It continued on with hockey.) NBC kicks in at 3pm with speed skating.
Curling coverage is about what I wanted: The game, the game and the game. They didn’t cut away to give me Pixar commercials (no how curling would have been during the Viking age), no player profiles that last five minutes and rerun repeatedly. NBC/USA could have given us a bit more with what was going on in the other three lanes but that’s okay. I’d still prefer the US obsession while covering the damned sport mostly uninterrupted to what we’ve had so far.
Now I have to make the choice of hockey (love) or speed skating and other Olympic sports that I feel NBC will botch in covering.
