  1. Okay, while I love the looks of the games, the colors and and everything, they did a really poor job of hanging the wraps (if thats what you call them??) that are inside arenas. Examples are the Indoor Volleyball Arena and North Greenwhich Arena for gymnastics. Not the lower ones but the upper ones that say only London 2012. They look like they're almost falling off and doesn't look very good on TV. Has any one else noticed this or is it just me???
  2. The internet is actually taking place of television. In the not too distant future, you won't need satellite or cable subscriptions, instead you'll subscribe to the individual networks you want. And it will all be broadcast over the internet. Heard of Google TV or the rumored Apple TV (not the set top box), or Netflix or even NBC's coverage of every olympic event live. Were already seeing internet networks that are providing 24 hour television online. You'll be able to watch wherever you are via phone, tablet, or your huge LED TV. As it is now, I watch the events I want to live via NBC Live
  3. I have a question that has probably already been answered, but where someone from the U.S. watch it live? If I remember right, youtube was going to be broadcasting some stuff live? Is the OC part of that?
  4. Is that not of the most beautiful and most recognizable Olympics cauldrons ever? They definitely did a fantastic job on it!
  5. For anyone around the Salt Lake Area here is a list of events: RELIGHTING THE FLAME A ceremonial relighting of the 2002 cauldron takes place the evening of February 8, remaining lit for public viewing through February 11. February 9-11 Cauldron Park, Rice-Eccles Stadium 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OLYMPIC SPORT FESTIVAL On Saturday, February 18, 2012, an outdoor sport festival will be held in the streets of The Gateway shopping center in downtown Salt Lake City. During the street festival, participants will have an opportunity to meet winter Olympic athletes, participate
  6. Awhile back I was able to find the daily newspaper distributed at the Olympic Village. Thought this would be fun to share. I have every days edition to share throughout the coming weeks. p.s. I don't have a scanner big enough here at my house but have one at work. So for today I just took pics.... I will re-upload a more readable version later. Also, feel free to contribute if you would like to share anything you might have or insight, thought whatever .

  7. The tenth anniversary of Salt Lake 2002 is approaching and thought I would post some things that I have for fun. I'll start off with a video (you probably have seen before ).
  8. Also, I dont know if its been posted, but there is a great channel on youtube with a lot of good Salt Lake vids. http://www.youtube.com/user/rememberingSL2002
  9. Does anyone what the song is called that begins at 1:05? I didn't know where else to ask. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TblRZj-1SVk
  10. I really enjoyed the olympics in Vancouver. The best I have seen since Salt Lake. Salt Lake was the first games that I watched and so it "set the bar" for me. Vancouver felt like, from what I could tell by the terrific broadcasting from NBC , it had a great atmosphere. The athletes performed very well also. It was a great games for both Canada and USA. The ceremonies were okay, I felt the OC relied to heavily on projections and the CC should of focused less on Canada and more on the athlete. IMO, I rate Vanvcouver second best to Salt Lake.
  11. To me, NBC has done an okay job. I really HATED how they didn't air the OC live here on the west coast. The beginning really got me excited with their intro segments.. The Canada/US relation segment was really good. Then there was almost a two hour time break till the OC Began on tape delay.. Really Pissed me off!!! During the OC, there was limited commercials which was good and I wish they would have eased on the commentary. NBC has done a good job presenting the games which I also like. Outside the Olympics, in my opinion, NBC is terrible. So with my poor taste of NBC, I have to give them
  12. I know!!! I am sooo freaking excited!!! Its crazy!
  13. Terrible news.... I wish the family comfort and the athletes safety.
