Hey, NBC

There's one Olympic event on right now. Just one. No conflicts. Men's 50km cross country skiing. It's a very big deal to a lot of people. Would it be too much trouble to show the bloody thing?

Of course it would. Instead, we are getting highlights of Lindsay Vonn's races from two weeks ago and the torch relay.

NBC: F*ck you.

ESPN: bid whatever it takes to win the Olympics rights. I don't care if my subscriber fees double. Please.

You know things are bad when people are begging ESPN for relief…

heh, the rights to Sochi still haven't been bid on yet, prolly because it'll be packaged with the rights to Rio, as the 2014 Games will be on an eight hour diffference.
