NBC bites!

God, I hate NBC's manipulation of the Olympics! In our region, there are 5, count 'em... 5! NBC stations; 3 network - DC, Baltimore, Hagerstown - as well as MSNBC and CNBC. You'd think one of the damn things would have been showing some of the games. But, noooooooooo, we've had to wait until 3 O'freakin' clock to see anything at all. Unbelievable!

Why spend all that money for the rights to the stupid thing if they're not going to have extensive coverage? Doesn't make any sense at all. Well, not to us peons anyway. I realize they make all their money with prime time viewing and commercial time, but since when is Saturday not prime time for sports? Everybody's home, waiting and wanting to watch - even when they're dictating what we can watch. Grrrrrrrr!

I want to be in Canada!

Hi Marianne! I'm not much of an Olympics watcher, but your last line got me: I want to be in Canada!

I almost moved to Canada instead of California 11 years ago. I still wish I'd made the other choice. Who knows what life would be like for me if I had?

I had two choices, and I chose here. I wonder when the GOOD decisions will start happening?

I love Canada. Spent a lot of time there in my childhood. (Lots of relatives up there from both sides of the family.)

Thanks for the memory!
