Let the Games begin! The Winter Olympics get started in Sochi, Russia, which is nine hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time. There are two ways to go about this: Cluelessly (blissfully?) watch wherever, whenever you can with no care for when the event actually takes place. Or, accurately (stressfully?) stay on top of the daily schedule, noting what's taped and what's live and tweet all the results (snarkily?) before most of the world sees them. Events begin on Thursday, but the opening ceremony is Friday (8 p.m. in Sochi, 11 a.m. in Kentucky, and delayed at 7:30 p.m. on NBC). For the first time at a Winter Games, every event — with the exception of the opening ceremony — will be available live online at NBCOlympics.com and through the NBC Sports Live Extra mobile app. TV networks showing the Olympics include NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, NBCSN, USA.
