I won't have to worry about tape delay or lack of coveragefor very much longer as I will be leaving for Italy in 140 hours or so.

I am beyond excited.
That's awesome!!! Will you be our source?

The wonders of modern technology means that I'm actually going to receive some live coverage of this despite living in a place that doesn't snow.

It's a bit odd, to say the least. I guess it's catering to expats or people with niche interests and it is an Olympics after all but personally, I care about it as much I do the Summer Olympics.

I am so bummed at the news of Michelle Kwan's withdrawal from the Games due to a groin injury!

It's been diagnosed as a new groin injury which happened yesterday on a jump

Very sad and disappointing for her, I would have loved to see her skate and at least get a chance. Michelle has had an amazing career as a skater. Good luck to Emily Hughes

That's too bad about Michelle, but Emily is a good skater and this is going to be her first international Seniors competition! Groin injuries are just about the most painful injuries to have if you're a skater. It hurts to move your leg. Best of luck to both Michelle, who's probably going to turn pro.

Well the CBC in Canada ran it live and then ran another tape delay in prime time, so it's not like it isn't possible to do both. NBC is just too cheap to take its soaps off the air for a day.

And have a great time in Italy! Lots of pics!!

She's already made a ton of money. No doubt she'll continue to rake it in. Now the only lady skater we have with a snowball's chance in hell of winning a medal is Sasha Cohen.

No Michelle. I'm rooting for Slutskaya for gold now.

NBC holds on to their coverage with an iron fist.

It is almost impossible to see highlights following an event, and the prime time coverage seems like 40% commercials and filler sprinkled with Olympic competition.
