    In order to watch the final you do have to download Microsoft Silverlight. If you plan on watching the final tonight, I would recommend you download the program before so you can start watching right away and not miss anything. To do that, just watch ANY of the videos on the www.nbcolympics.com website. The download will start when you click on any of the videos.


    Come cheer on the USA!

    The 121 by Hancock is an Olympic Record.

    Your welcome, Sportshot. :) Just doing my part.


    The road to television coverage starts at having an audience that wants to watch it (on the internet).


    Speedo went around to insurance companies seeking coverage for that $1,000,000.00 offer -- Speedo was looking to pay only 30%. The insurance companies all said no. Although, I think that million dollars is just a fraction of what he's going to make...

    For some reason the video is not streaming live. At the conclusion of the rapid fire pistol final, it said the next transmission would be for the Men's Skeet Final tonight. I guess they must be having some video problems. Here is a link you can click on to watch the live scoring of each target. Live result, no video...Oh well. Hopefully it will be up as a rewind.
