Olympic Slumber

Curling is eliminating the "insomniac" element from the Insomniac's Lounge. Last night, the USA network had live Olympic coverage starting at midnight, however they started their coverage with curling. I was asleep by 12:03. I know it's supposed to be a popular sport, but I just can't get into shuffleboard on ice. Any game that can be practiced on a Carnival Cruise is not one that I can take seriously as an Olympic event.

Btw, as I type this, MSNBC is testing just how badly anyone wants to watch the Olympics by broadcasting a Women's Ice Hockey matchup between Finland and Switzerland. It might be time for my mid-morning nap...

The Olympics and NBC are missing out on a great sponsoring partnership with their late-night coverage. Somewhere around 1 am, there should be a commercial along the lines of: "It's 1 am and you're watching two guys in tights sweep ice. You need help. You need...Lunesta."

I dont know what it is, but your site has only loaded for me like twice in two weeks. I don't know if it's on my end or where the problem is, but I'm not having this issue with any other site I visit.

Doug, are you using Firefox? For some reason, my site is having some problems on firefox, although usually hitting 'refresh' clears it up.

I have no clue why this is happening.
