Olympics stuff

So as of the blogpost, Canada has got 1 medal so far in the London 2012 Games. We’re ahead of the pace in Beijing, where it took until Day 8 to get our first medal. I’ve been watching stuff here and there over the weekend, and I’ve actually not minded the TSN/CTV/Sportsnet coverage; they’ve done well to show events live, as well as not over play their “I Believe” theme song they regurgitated after Vancouver 2010. (I didnt see it being played at all when Canada won their first medals on Sunday, and that’s a good thing).

Compare that to the coverage NBC is doing – showing almost no live events, and when showing it, presenting it as an event Americans are competing at, with other nations as an afterthought. It’s brought them in for quite some criticism – but this is nothing new. American coverage of Olympic events has been criticized for since I can remember.
