Just because you can doesn’t mean you should!

Looks like some good training conditions. 1:20 for Shiffrin & Ligety...
Frustrating isn't it? I try to set my DVR to record the races but I miss some. Sometimes they are listed as Skiing which means if I record "all skiing" I often end up with slopestyle, moguls, aerials, pipe & repeats of everything. Other times it is listed as FIS Skiing or Alpine Skiing & often the scheduled broadcast times are wrong, get changed or it just doesn't happen at all. The best bet is to watch the live stream, if you can get it.I can see the ladies will be broadcast @10:30pm EST on NBCSN. I can't wait that long and will have to watch the live stream. I don't see yet what time the men are on.
The problem here in the US is that Alpine ski racing is a super fringe sport & is rarely shown live on TV, if at all. When the races are in Europe, "live" is usually the middle of night for us.Men are the day after. 10:00 local time.
Frustrating isn't it?
The other issue is trying not to know results before getting a chance to watch. I am learning to avoid the SPOILER posts on all forms of social media from those who can't contain themselves & want to announce it to the world. I've gotten better at that & when I do know results it is usually my own fault for being connected to all sorts of feeds & pages.
@Philpug & @Tricia , get this man a Pugski hat & stickers!Hehe @Swede I will be on the hill in Soelden that weekend, and I hope no channel will be showing me (that means I won't do something stupid)
Looks like the Olympic Channel will show Men's GS, Sunday 5:30am MST.
You do the math . I guess I won't be watching, hopefully someone will post it up on Youtube or something?
A. *MDT. Daylight Saving Time doesn't end until November 5th (Sorry. Why am I like this??)
B. Aintcha got a DVR?
C. They will show a replay at 3:00 PM
A. I don't write the news, I just report it . It's all part of the conspiracy. Like I said, you do the math.
B. I've got a DVR, just no Olympic channel.
C. See B.
Well, that too. Problem is, as you pointed out the broadcasters don't know the difference between Standard & Daylight Savings so I wouldn't know what time to get up or set my DVR anyway .Oh, gotcha. Sorry I thought you were saying that's too early in the morning.
