The Silver Bullet

An opinion in popular sports

2010 Winter Olympic TV Schedule UPDATE


NBC has decided to right their wrongs (though a little bit late), by airing the USA vs. Finland Semifinal on Friday LIVE on all coasts. I do feel bad for already taped TV Hosts, Bonnie Hunt and Ellen, who will be pushed back to their normal time slots for the day here in the Bay Area.

Even though we will now see it live, the tables have suddenly turned on the USA. When it looked at one time the US had the easier road to the Gold Medal Game, now it looks the uprising Canadians will coast into the Final.

Slovakia upset Sweden late last night… and that means Canada will face a 7-seed Slovak team, and the US will face the 4-seed Finland squad.

Either way, The USA will have a tough time winning gold in these Olympics. The Canadian team is too strong right now, and it will take a work of art to knock these guys off their game now.

Ultimately, though, this country should be proud of a Silver effort, when no one thought they make the medal round anyway.
