NBC Tape Delay is hard to watch

It's nearly impossible to not know the results of the day's Olympic events by the time the NBC coverage begins at 8 p.m. Between Twitter, Facebook and all the other social media outlets, it's more difficult than ever to make it through the day without someone spoiling your evening. The ratings are huge, so maybe it's not that big a deal. But I have never been able to watch a game on tape delay when I already know the outcome. Just does not work for me.
