17 Feb 14 … I never thought I’d be happy to have Matt Lauer back, but here we are. Thanks for that, Meredith. #Sochi2014
17 Feb 14 … the snowcross course is bucking so many riders, the commentators aren’t even bothering to point them out as they go down. #Sochi2014
17 Feb 14 … is #Sochi2014 actually trying to kill off all their snowboarders?
17 Feb 14 … I want to be the fat guy in the back of the bobsled. #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … each time I turn away from the tube, #TeamUSA scores another goal. so, I’m going to stop watching. #USAvsSLO #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … Rebecca Lowe and Al Trautwig should never share the same screen. It creates a vortex of emotions that shreds my soul. #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … seriously, I can’t see the #FACup through the glare from Mitt Romney’s teeth.
16 Feb 14 … with two kids, a wife, and a 60-hour a week job, I’m fully caught up on @NBCOlympics coverage. how is that possible?!? #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … the flirting between Rebecca Lowe and Al Michaels shouldn’t make me as happy as it does. #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … in a #curling battle between Canada’s shirts and Norway’s pants, who wins?!? #NOBODY #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … South Korean speed skaters aren’t any less annoying when wearing Russian uniforms. #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … yup, definitely the suits. #7thPlace #11thPlace #22ndPlace #37thPlace #TeamUSA #speedskating #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … we’re blaming the suits now? seriously?!? #yourejustold #speedskating #TeamUSA #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … so glad an Austrian skier is saving the cheetahs, because if she won’t then who will?!? #sigh #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … It’d be awesome if one of these Russians popped off their helmet and was Edward Snowden. #luge #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … twenty years from now, I’ll be having nightmares about turns 5 and 11. #luge #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … the #olympics aren’t the #olympics without @SamuelLJackson live tweeting the whole thing. #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … my wife on her comment on Meredith Viera: “I hope that shows up on NBC’s social media monitoring in the morning.” #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … my wife on Meredith Viera: “ugh, I can’t stand looking at her cheeks. look, I can’t wiggle my face!” #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … I don’t care how bad you think Matt Lauer is, Meredith Viera is worse. #BobCostasForever #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … short track should only be a sport in futuristic, post-apocalyptic blood sport movies. #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … where does all USOC’s money from McD’s and Coke go, if not to keep Olympians off food stamps?!? #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … I’m nominating Elise Christie for saddest #Olympics appearance of 2014. #speedskating #tivo #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … Sweden wearing white, Korea wearing yellow, USA wearing black. did nobody look at their flags before they got dressed? #Sochi2014
16 Feb 14 … #ohdeargod, how did no one think of team relay luge before this #olympics?!? #Sochi2014 #TiVo
15 Feb 14 … Vladimir Posner, I missed you. don’t ever leave me again. #ColdWarNostalgia #NBCFTW #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … “ya, you’d never dream of this type of drama for a team up by three in the final end. it’s amazing. it’s something you just don’t see.”
15 Feb 14 … so glad that I’m watching #USAvsGER curling. they’re definitely not making the sport look, um, easy. #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … the Midwestern-nice commentators for #USAvsGER curling sound like their calling a JV game. sadly, they’re right. #Sochi2014 #TiVo
15 Feb 14 … every event should have guns. cross-country, with guns. ski jumping, with guns. figure skating, with guns. #Sochi2014 #TiVo
15 Feb 14 … power-watching #TiVo’e #olympics coverage, making up for the past week’s silly distractions like work, wife, and kids. #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … after falling for the #Olympics and the Mahre bros in Sarajevo, #Sochi2014 is a little hollow w/o an American man on the Alpine podium.
15 Feb 14 … teeth per capita seems to be much higher for #TeamUSA. #GoUSA #USAvsRUS #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … this game was so much more epic when they were the Soviets. #USAvsRUS #ColdWarNostalgia #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … I have no idea who I’m rooting for. #USAvsRussia #RussianStudiesMajor #StockholmSyndrome #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … hey, hippie. pull up your pants. #TiVo #slopestyle #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … and the Al Trautwig award for most over-wrought commentary goes to whoever the hell is calling the women’s luge. #Sochi2014
15 Feb 14 … nice to see the USA + South Korea speed skating mutual admiration society continues. #Grrrr #Sochi2014 #TiVo
15 Feb 14 … I’m deeply confused how Russia men’s hockey didn’t beat Slovenia by double digits. I’m guessing they are too. #Sochi2014
14 Feb 14 … drinking Cuba Libre’s, hold the cola. and, now that you mention it, don’t worry about the lime either. or the glass.
14 Feb 14 … if/when I train for the #olympics, I’m brining sand toys so #mightyquinn can play in the long jump pit. @noellepikuspace #Sochi2014
14 Feb 14 … oh, Evgeni. nobody should have to go out that way. #Sochi2014
14 Feb 14 … how is it a false start if no one actually crosses the start line? #speedskating #Sochi2014
14 Feb 14 … Matt Lauer, has he found — gravitas? #BattlefieldPromotion #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … Once again, American women are cleaning up the mess left by American men. #halfpipe #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … goldpants the pirate. #wow #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … so USA and Canada don’t like each other any more? that hockey match was brutal. #thoughttheywerenice #eh #52ndState #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … women’s ski jumping is awesome. lots of happy athletes. shame it took 16 years to happen. #tivo #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … apparently success getting TV commercial deals does NOT equate to success getting medals at the #olympics. huh. #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … kinda surprised there’s better halfpipe conditions on Pennsylvania Ave than in Sochi. #DC2024 #Olympics
13 Feb 14 … #sparklet has named her favorite stuffed animal “Sochi.” #FTW #Sochi2014
13 Feb 14 … wonder if the Russian homophobe police are patrolling the men’s double luge event. #lookssuspicious #GayingUpSochi #Sochi2014
12 Feb 14 … mad props to the American fans at the sliding venue. #jingotastic #Sochi2014
12 Feb 14 … for the record, even 3 minutes and 31 seconds of Al Trautwig is too much. #FireAlTrautwig #CrossCountryDeservesBetter #Sochi2014
12 Feb 14 … Matt’s not bad. certainly better than watching Bob and trying desperately to avoid eye contact. #blegh #sochi2014
12 Feb 14 … having a hard time getting into the #olympics spirit tonight. #figureskating #flyingtomato #sadpanda #Sochi2014
