Tape Delays to Rankle Olympic Fans

In the age of Twitter, can fans wait to watch tape-delayed events during the Winter Olympics? Most events will be shown live to American viwers because the quadrennial global sporting festival takes places in Vancouver this year, but some, like major skiing competitions, will take place during the day and be shown on television at night. "The way information travels these days, finding out the results in advance is a total buzz kill," one potential fan told The Wall Street Journal. It'll be the worst for West Coast audiences where all major prime-time events will be shown on NBC with a tape delay.
