The sound went out at approximately 7:20 PM MST on the NBC olympic broadcast feed. Surely this is the work of conspirators conspiring against us, the conspirees. WOE! Always the victim.
Update-The "Technical Difficulties" tag appeared at approximately 7:32 PM, the first sign the NBC recognized that anyone recognized something was seriously wrong. The feed was restored by 7:35.
Interestingly, the sound was cut off during the Chinese national anthem. Was it Chinese censure? Saboteurs? Pure incompetence on the part of NBC?? I WANT ANSWERS!!!
ANSWER: Storms in Denver have blocked the HD signal. Lame. Better luck next time!
