Another packed schedule for Tuesday night at the Olympic Games:
Three things to watch:
1. Men's short program (live, begins 7:15). Russian Evgeni Plushenko is back to defend his gold medal from Turin. He'll be 10th to go at Vancouver. Don't miss the end: Canadian medal favorite Patrick Chan and Americans Evan Lysacek and Johnny Weir will all skate in the final quarter of the event.
2. Women's snowboard cross (tape delay). In the most infamous moment of the 2006 Olympics, American Lindsey Jacobellis hot-dogged her final jump and fell, stumbling across the line for the silver medal. She's back in Vancouver for redemption and enters as one of the gold-medal favorites, along with Canadian Maelle Ricker. As the men showed Monday, snowboard cross is as unpredictable as it gets, so expect the unexpected.
3. Women's speedskating, 500m (live). Well, it'll be live on NBC assuming the folks in Vancouver can get the ice machine working. Germany's Jenny Wolf is the favorite. No American women are expected to contend.
Sport to watch: curling. Here's hoping NBC shows some of the most fascinating sport at the Winter Games in prime time. If the network chooses not to, check out coverage on USA and CNBC. You won't regret it.
