  1. Although it would seem a mere formality, USA women still have to qualify for Tokyo. And the way the qualifying is set-up, assuming they are first or second in their group, the two CONCACAF Olympic spots comes down to one must-win match in the semi-finals that takes place on Feb.7.
  2. Do we know yet if NBC will make the OBS feed available for streaming for sports that will be shown live in prime time (i.e., swimming and athletics)?
  3. Personally, I preferred the Star Spangled Banner arrangements used in Los Angeles and Atlanta (along with many other countries' anthems).
  4. Womens Water Polo USA-Greece at 1020 ET today is critical match for both teams. Whoever wins today will win the group and get a far less difficult QF opponent. Really want to avoid RUS, NED or ITA is QFs.
  5. US Figure Skating tweeted that will announce their short program line-ups on 2/5 at 10:00AM local. l
  6. I heard a snippet of The Star Spangled Banner this morning for the US athletes' arrival at the Olympic Village. It sounds like the Athens/Beijing versions, which I do not care for at all.
  7. Correct. Russia went to permanent daylight savings time in November 2011. See here http://latitude.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/01/will-russia-restore-daylight-saving-time/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0 There were efforts, particulary from Westerm European nations, to have Russia move their clocks back 1 hour for the Olympic year, but it was rejected. http://olympictalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/11/sochi-time-change-russia/ So now Sochi, Moscow and St. Petersburg, are permanently GST +4.
  8. The CBC Olympic app can now be downloaded: http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/app-store/cbc-olympics-sochi-2014/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+iphoneincanada+%28iPhone+in+Canada+-+Canada%27s+%231+iPhone+Resource%29
  9. All of these USA Golden Girls to come through: Kikkan Randall, Mikaela Shriffin, Noelle Pikus-Pace, the Hockey Team
  10. Placement in each phase determines final results. Its explained here: http://skatingmagazineblog.com/2013/04/09/world-team-trophy-vs-olympic-team-event/ the key seems to making the podium seems to be getting all of your skaters in each discipline in the top 5 in the short program. You don't want to have someone in the bottom 5 as that placement will be a part of your final score.
  11. Not in any particular order: 1968 Mexico City - First Summer Games I saw on TV as a 12 year old 1936 Berlin 1976 Innsbruck - Still my favorite Winter Games. I'm planning to visit there this summer. 1992 Barcelona 2012 London
  12. Earlier today, I sent a Tweet to Richard Sandomir, the sports TV columnist for the New York Times. I asked him if NBC was going back on their word to live stream everything. Here is his response: it's always been about live streaming of sports but NBC press material could have been more open about tape-delays of ceremonies Looks like I will have to rely on CTV and signing up for a British Proxy server next Friday to view the BBC's live stream.
  13. Agree with everyone else that the ceremonies probably won't be streamed live. The closing ceremonies aren't listed either. However, note that nothing is listed on Friday 7/27. Earlier on 7/27, there is a ranking round scheduled for archery which isn't included in the online listings. Its scheduled to start at 4:00AM with the women's at 8:00AM. Now if we see an updated listing with the archery ranking round and no opening ceremonies, then that would be pretty conclusive.
