Announcers on MSNBC are JP Dellacamera and Lori Walker, while Andrés "GOOOAL!" Cantor and Alejandro Blanco will call the games in Spanish on Telemundo.

The NBC Universal networks are carrying 24 hour-a-day coverage of the Olympics beginning Friday night. Let the Games begin!

I just hope sportsmanship rules, on the American side as well as the European side, as well as the Asian side, as well as . . .

Cripes.......can you imagine if they pull a Brandy Chastain style yanking off of the shirt after a penalty shot victory?

It could literally start WWIII.

Stay safe Olympians.....

The CBC's (Canadian Broadcast Company) coverage of the Olympics is much better than NBC's in my opinion. They show more, talk and "hollywood" less, and give balanced commentary. Don't know if you can get them in your area. I can since I'm right next to the border.
