2010 Vancouver Olympic Hockey: Super Sunday Starts Off with No TV Coverage?

February 21st, 2010 by Andy Bensch Leave a reply »

I woke up today on what has been deemed the "Super Sunday" of hockey, with rematches of the last three gold medal games all slated on the same day.

But when I switched to NBC at 12 noon to get my Czech Republic vs Russia fix, I found that there was no hockey to be shown.

As a matter of fact, even though the Tivo description listed "Men's hockey, Czech Republic vs Russia," all they showed was various types of skiing and none of it featured Lindsey Vonn, so why would I want to watch?

Listen, my whole family skies and it is a fun sport to both partake in and watch, for the most part. However, seeing guys go over a bunch of tiny jumps without doing any tricks during a "race" is not entertaining.

Most of us Olympic fans would rather watch skiers Tanner Hall or Simon Dumont go big in the half pipe. But oh wait, there is no skiing half pipe in the Olympics, only snowboarding!

But that is an argument for another day.

My complaint today is that when I want to be enjoying two of the most talented hockey countries in the world go up against one another, I'm regulated to watching cross-country skiing.
