IDK I was watching the news last nite on rabbit ears channel 18 and the reporter (I don't remember his name) was whining about not getting to cover the games this time. I was wondering if there was any truth to it.

I guess you bid for the rights and if you don't get them then you can't air them. It sucks because the coverage you get off air sucks. Just one more way the capatalist IOC is stealing IMO.

you need a permit to buy a gun, but they'll sell anyone a computer. Go online - you obviously have internet access - everything is there - for free!! Shocker that the evil capitalists would do this - but they did. So ridiculous.

BTW,

If you have access to Shaw VOD you can watch replays free of charge. A lot of it in HD if you have an HD receiver/TV. I don't think you even need to be a subscriber to HD as long as you have the hardware.
