    Pure quality. On the ES Player coverage of the Alpine skiing, we get an exclusive insight of commentator Nick Fellows arguing with tech support in Paris about whether he has installed the latest software patches.  
     
    Took me right back. That used to be my job.  (Convincing arrogant senior people to install software patches, not commentating on alpine skiing.)

    Unfortunately it was not only mid-week. There was Sundaly evening, Norway played against Denmark And yes there were more fans but not so much.
     
    On the other hand, i saw very much famous player next to me and if i would have more encourage i can easily discuss with them And it would be ok for them.
    I met Murdoch 5 times (mostly during dinner), Czech former players (Kubeska, Snítil), Turkish girl players and Italian girls players sit next to me during men curling game...
    It was interesting to look to their behavior outside of curling matches :-)
     
    + You can see 5 matches at same time. So you can switch your interest to other game or simultanously watch everything. 
     
    But yes i am big fan of curling and for most people which i know, i am crazy, because for them, it is ridiculous and boring sport.
     
    Back to school (students). They were there twice. But teacher said them to leave  before 10th end (or 4 stone before end) when match was really close.
    I was annoyed :-D

    So, like Queen Christina, Sweden does not have much luck with their female rulers.
     
    Mind you, eight hours would count as a long period in office by 1970s Italian standards.

    European Champs, both Men’s & Women’s starting in Lillehammer on Saturday. Lots of matches available on streaming, more than ever before probably.  Here’s the schedule.
     
    https://worldcurling.org/2021/11/ecc2021-broadcast/
     
    Streaming won’t be on YouTube, though - World Curling has a new channel.  It’s not a free service, but it’s based on paying microcredits per game.  Also lots of games on ES as usual.

    I’m using the Amazon Fire Stick app.  Works fine for an actual live event, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to get back to the first run…..annoying.

    Qualifying in Nizny Tagil has started. Fatih Arda Ipcioglu has qualified as the first Turkish ski jumper to the main competition. He's been trying to do this since 2017 and spend majority of last few seasons on the Continental Cup.

    The Luge live-streams get an upgrade.  Will be hosted on olympics.com this season, and therefore also via the apps, Fire sticks, Roku etc.
