I think the worst part of unlucky is that you probably live in the wrong country to get even a few seconds of XC skiing on TV.
There may be a five second spot on some local news (Minnesota probably) when/if Jessica Diggins wins a Gold but nothing before that. That would still be five seconds more than the expected coverage of orienteering on American TV the next 20 years or so.
I´ve watched every second of the XC skiing and also the Biathlon on Swedish TV5 which I suppose wouldn´t be broadcast in Laramie.
I never expected to see much coverage of orienteering as part of this Winter Olympics, so that part isn't disappointing. ; )
Probably there is complete skiing coverage even here, somewhere--but not on over-the-air broadcasts. If I were to turn on the TV one of these nights and suddenly there was a bunch of XC coverage, that would be a good sign that some American won a medal. Short of that, though...
However, I imagine it will all show up on Youtube eventually, and by then I will have forgotten the results, if I ever even saw them in the first place. So I can watch then, and it will seem totally fresh to me.
Strangely we had quite a bit of xc last weekend. Must have been slow for other things or they didn’t know what to do without football. But good coverage of biathlon, skiathlon, a long xc race that the winner took a nap at the mass start, and a couple heats of the women’s sprint yesterday. Mostly been curling which lands with golf as most unexciting things to watch.
Actually, lots of XC and biathalon on NBCSN during the day. We can't get over-the-air in our area, so we're trialing some of the streaming online options, which provide a line-up similar to cable.
I've also seen a lot of curling.
