NBC Stupidity

Who came up with the broadcast plan that only shows the 2nd and 3rd periods of men's hockey games?  After sitting through a painful women's hockey game where Canada beat Sweden 14-1 and Cammie Granato complained non-stop about running up the score (unlike the US 12-0 victory over Russia, which showed "class"), NBC gave me "bonus coverage" of the competitive Sweden-Germany men's game - but cut away after five minutes to go to Keith Olbermann and told me to change channels...So that hockey could be pre-empted by curling.

NBC sucks.

Update: ok, NBC is now pre-empting a game between two top hockey teams so that we can see the Slovakian and Swiss women's teams play each other.  Are you kidding me?
