Man, what a technological wonderworld we live in...
 
Amazing!

The USA Jr. Team just won its first Gold Medal, and in just the span of one month, we will be able to watch it in our own homes. Its this amazing new process called 'Taped-delay' that actually allows people at home, just like you or me, to see how things actually happened. And they can pull all of this together in just one month! Wow. I cant wait.

I didnt see why MSG or FSNY couldn't pick up the game. I mean, i know MSG would be giving up HUGE rating points by preempting "In-Fishermen Critical Concepts" and "Totally Football", and FSNY wouldnt dare take air time away from "54321" and "Gilad's Bodies in Motion" to show a lil' old hockey game, but i think it would have been worth the risk.

All these posts blasting the US TV Networks got me thinking. A lot of posters here blast ESPN and Fox for showing things like Poker and Fishing instead of hockey. Has anyone ever gone to a "Fishing Forum", or "Poker message board", and seen any Fishing fans or poker fans complain about a network showing a "stupid hockey game" instead of a "major fishing tournement" or poker game? Just a thought... :dunno:

Someone has exclusive broadcast rights to the the program and other networks must have their "expressed written consent" to re-air it wih restrictions on when that can be. I'm quite sure it's not a scheduling issue that keeps us waiting.
