I thought sports were no place for political protests?

I considered putting up a livestream for the Opening Ceremonies this morning, but then I remembered the last time I tried that it temporarily shorted out the whole blog. So I went to bed instead (I keep vampire hours, going to bed around dawn and getting up in the afternoon.)

If you also missed the ceremony, NBC will be rebroadcasting it at 8pm EST. SB Nation has some nice how-to-watch information here.

If you’re not avoiding “spoilers”, NYMag‘s Vulture sublog has gifs of “10 Moments You Missed at the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony”.


Who’s planning on watching which events, tonight or over the next week?


One public-relations save already…
