NBC KNTV announced that Friday's game will be on live. (nbcolympics.com wasn't yet updated last I looked. DVR still not showing noon start.)

I've read various reports around the net that Sunday's gold medal game will be tape delayed, any idea if there's any truth behind that?

They're probably waiting to see if the Americans make it, figuring that a Canada-Finland final is something that isn't worth making the switch for.

So Slovakia - Finland would definitely be out of the question

As it stands right now, it's tape delayed. (Why? It's not prime time. )

They might replace the game as a whole on NBC with infomercials about the 700 club like that Nashville affliate and move the game to MSNBC in that case.

Let's hope the men of Finland get to play for the same.

For some reason, everytime Drew said "pairs figure skating or ice dancing", I thought he was asking: "Parros figure skating or ice dancing" - I think that's a much more interesting question.

I like Greiss' response to who he called when he found out he was an olympian I wonder if he actually just read it in the paper.

Vancouver Medal Count Projections: Day 14

I've somehow managed to write 10,000 not-totally-crappy words on my book this week and my brain is totally fried ... so not going to offer much in the way of commentary here. It's becoming increasingly clear that the United States is going to win the overall medals title -- the two medals yesterday in Nordic Combined might have all but clinched it. Canada remains the somewhat substantial favorite to take the most golds.

Sunday's gold medal game will be LIVE on NBC (not tape delayed as initially scheduled).

More on Lago (I saw the pics, and they're were hardly controversial.)

When Scotty Lago heard about the Canadian women’s hockey team celebrating its gold medal with beer and bubbly and cigars, he laughed. When he heard the Canadian Olympic Committee actually supported the team’s on-ice party, he was incredulous....

I went to Canada for a soccer tournament many moons ago in BC. We were in the 12-14 age group I think and when Edmonton won, what would be bronze, they all lighted up stogies. We were trippin'

We won the tourney by the way. One of the highlights of my life.

Team USA had booked some players and their families on return flights Sunday morning. Now they're having to rebook.

It's all over but the crying: it's probably impossible for Germany (or Canada) to win enough medals to surpass the United States' overall lead, whereas Canada would have to fail pretty spectacularly not to win the gold medal count outright.

Tonight, 7pm PT, it's the BRONZE medal match between Finland and Slovakia.

It's a Sharkless contest, therefore, I really don't care who wins. I suppose I'll cheer for Slovakia, because it's a good story - AND, I'd rather the Ducks not return home with a League high 7 medals (Canada: Getzlaf, Niedermayer, Perry. USA: Ryan, Whitney. Finland: Selanne, Koivu). On the flipside, if Slovakia wins, the Hawks are tops with 6 (USA: Kane. Canada: Keith, Seabrook, Toews. Slovakia: Hossa, Kopecky).

Both the Ducks and Hawks worry me as potential playoff opponents, as it's obvious they have plenty of world class talent on their rosters. I'm sure it's been noted, the Ducks may sit in the 11th spot but they're only 2pts out of 8th - and potentially having their players earn the 'best overall performance' at the Games is sure to boost their confidence going forward (and having read around the interwebs, their fans are certainly licking their chops at the prospect of authoring another big upset in the playoffs)

Apparently, if Canada wins tomorrow, they beat the gold medal record set by the Soviets back in the day. Though in fairness to commies, there were a lot less sporting events back then.
