The Daily Hilario: It's Olympics and Chelsea U21 time!

New, comments

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Welcome to the new tradition.

Time to shift the focus off how unprepared Sochi's accommodations are and onto the games themselves. It's opening ceremony time! NBC will of course do their tape-delayed, country-skipping thing that we all love hate and the ceremony is the one thing that they're not live streaming because reasons. But at least they're streaming everything else at NBColympics.com (and on iOS & Android apps). Woo!

Later today, Chelsea U21 take on neighbors and league leaders Fulham in the U21 Premier League. Yes, you read that right: league leaders Fulham. It'll be live on Chelsea TV; don't miss it!
