NBC Ends Olympic Coverage with a Bang

What more could NBC have asked for at the Winter 2010 Olympics. (I would have loved another Tara Lipinski, the best Olympics ever was when she won gold. I collected Campbells Soup labels to get a soup mug with her on it.)

The last event of the Vancouver games turned into one of the biggest (non-N.F.L.) sports events in recent television history. The Canada-U.S.A. gold medal hockey game was seen by a huge audience of 27.6 million viewers, making it the most-watched hockey game on American television since two games in the 1980 games from Lake Placid, headed by the famous U.S. upset over the Soviet Union.

Just wait Canada, when the games are not on your turf you will be toast. =)
