Where's the Friggin' TV Coverage of Olympic Curling?

As I write this at 1pm (EST) on Sunday, I am under the impression that the Canadian men's team is playing New Zealand in curling at the 2006 Olympics. But nobody is televising the match, even though its outcome could well determine what happens to the Canadian team for the play-offs.

Instead, here is what is being shown:

CBC main channel: Sweden vs. the USA in hockey; then Canada vs. Finland in hockey; their previews mention nothing about televising curling between periods of the hockey games.

CBC French: figure-skating, bobsled, women's aerial skiing?

CBC Country Canada: W.C. Fields and Me, followed by their usual drek.

TSN: motoring and pre-Daytona race; Daytona 500

NBC: Daytona 500.

MSNBC: at 4pm will show a tape delay of the US - Britain men's curling.

Ms. Eclectic suggested we dig out our old portable shortwave radio to see if anyone is broadcasting the curling on the radio.

TSN will broadcast the match tonight. Of course the Torino website is handling this nicely with live updates of the scoring. After 3 Canada is up 2-0 with two steals of 1. On the Canadian team at teh moment only Howard is shooting poorly.

Yup! Add me to your list of people pretty disappointed to see the Nascar and the Daytona stuff this afternoon ... that is, if you are keeping a list!
