I want those pants for myself! Just for that, I'm going to force my husband to watch curling with me. (Aside: Italian television is TERRIBLE about broadcasting the Olympics. As in, they just don't. During the last summer Olympics, they only showed rowing and fencing. And all we have seen of the Winter Olympics so far on Italian TV is one awards ceremony. ZERO SPORTS. So we've been doing all sorts of top-secret fancy proxy server stuff to watch NBC online... which allows us to skip the Bob Costas commentary and is really not so bad a deal after all. How is the coverage in Sweden?)

The coverage here is actually pretty good, and we also get Eurosport. But I haven't really watched that much. I catch some online as well.
