So when do the actual ceremonies start, as opposed to this "America's the Greatest!" pep rally?

Thank you, Canada!
I watched as much as could be seen on American TV, I think.
Especially, I enjoyed the coverage on Curling.
NBC didn't do a perfect job, but it had more coverage than I've seen in past Olympics.
Beijing coverage was lousy.
Now, my husband and I will get busy preparing to visit Vancouver and Nova Scotia, two places we'd love to see.
Examining the comments which proceeded mine, I have to say I fully understand why Americans are not much respected in the rest of the world.
Pathetic comments.

The lamest TV coverage of the winter games ever .

I can't believe NBC broke for an hour in the middle of the Olympic Closing Ceremony. Is that nationwide or did they only do that for Mountain time? They introduced Marriage Ref. I'm changing the channel. In all the Olympic closings I've ever seen they have never split the closing ceremony to air a new show. Shame on you NBC.

Wow - who managed to make Catherine O'Hara only moderately funny?

Why these freaking people like Catherine O'Hara not live in Canada if they love it so much?
