With a 2-0 win over Switzerland in the men’s hockey quarterfinals, the Americans are guaranteed a medal game. If you lived in either the pacific or mountain time zones you would’ve missed it live because NBC had the balls to tape delay that, too. Well after days of complaining, angry e-mails, and ranting, NBC is listening to us! They really are! Friday’s semifinal against the winner of Finland/Czech Republic (currently playing as of this post) will be aired live at 3 PM ET/12 PM PT! It’s going live from New York City to Los Angeles!

Well this is fantastic news! NBC has decided to do exactly what they should’ve been doing this entire Olympics! Whooo!!! Got to give kudos for that, right?
Sadly they still plan on airing the Gold Medal Final on tape delay. Great.
Tell ya what NBC…I’ll cut you a deal. You show the final live coast-to-coast and I will watch 5 (5!!!!) seconds of The Marriage Ref.
