"Spectacle" called mass start will be the last speed skating competition. :lol: Talk about an anticlimactic finish. :p

Oh boy, fantastic...let's finish the schedule with a race where intermediate sprints give points that only matter for the 4th place and further :lol:

 

And seeing the incredibly unfair new 500m rule, with only one instead of two races, just makes me even more sad about the speed skating program in Pyeongchang :mad:

None of us, including you, cares about those early times, because we'll all wake up around 00:00-01:00 CET every Olympic day and go to sleep like 17:00 :p 

 

You bet !  :bounce::bounce:

Interesting that womens alpine skiing program will start with Giant slalom and slalom. womens slalom already on first wednesday is quite unusual. 

 

Probably, because of the scarse resources in Korea, that don't allow them to have both the men and womens speed events on back-to-back days.

alpine skiing scheduling must take into consideration the fact that they only have 1 track for speed events, so they had to spread them throughout both weeks (men's and women's courses clearly need different settings, they can't be used at the same time)...:evil:;)

 

snowboarding and figure skating events have been set in the Korean morning because of the US Network NBC...

as usual, they want the 2 most watched sports in the USA in their prime time...

and if they order, the local organizers just execute...like good soldiers...:facepalm::wall:

 

by the way, I don't like this schedule...on each day there are just 2 strong blocks of events all at the same time and many empty hours...

so, it's gonna be impossible to follow everything live...we'll necessarily have to rely on VOD services, hoping that our broadcasters (atm in Italy Discovery group have all the rights...and nothing indicates that they're going to share the FTA part with any other network) would give us some decent ones...

 

p.s. @hckosice

I'm just watching another Slovan Bratislava crazy exhibition in the KHL...they never play ordinary/boring games...:d

btw I don´t know in which stream/TV did you watched this and if you noticed that, but today the speaker was awesome, I couldn´t stop laughing, he caled almost each announcement the host as Metalurg Magnitogorsk :lol: even during theshoot outs he announced 2nd attempt for Magnitogorsk going player number ... :rofl: In fact Magnitogorsk played today as well, just the detail is that not in Bratislava but in Riga :lol:

I watched it on Sport2 HD (satellite tv @ 23.5 East)...

fortunately for me, I don't understand Slovak that well (actually, I don't understand it at all, if not for the numbers, the players' names and a couple of other hockey related terms), but I clearly heard the name Magnitogorsk more than once...:facepalm:

I know...right now i'm enjoying the whole kombi pack from Skylink, so I have regular view of sport1 & 2, nova sport 1 & 2, arena sport 1 (if only they had a better picture quality...it's my only reliable source for the SHL - apart for those couple of games you can find on youtube once every while), Golf Channel (man, how I'd love to see it in HD) and all Slovak and Czech public channels (included CT Sport HD, another great channel)...

frankly, I think this is a lot better tv package than many of the most famous ones, skysport Italia included (which is basically only about football, basketball and motorsports, with all the other sports in their lineup getting really a bad coverage)...

and it's not so expensive (at least for the Italian standard)...:d

the czech national public sport channel ČT sport is a briliant channel. absolutely briliant. :)

 

well so that you are lucky then, you have a nice amount of hockey available, Nova sport with NHL, Sport TV with KHL, and national TV ČT and STV for international Czech and Slovak matches :)
