Do They Offer a Gold Medal for "Couch Potatoing?"

First, there's my "Enhanced TV" feature that Time Warner Cable added to my already killer HDTV signal. I can switch between stations covering the Olympics like a true channel surfer.
Two, my DVR built into the Time Warner set top box (I swear this is not a commercial for TW). I can record two separate programs at the same time at once, then play them back in fast forward action mode (with the exception of the sport of curling, which completely eludes me...sorry, it just looks like shuffleboard on ice, and I figure I can hold off on that until I'm permanently living on a cruise ship...but I do support the American curlers!)
Three...get this, as it falls into the camp of "My VCR is still flashing 12:00s..."...I finally learned how to do picture on picture with my digital cable remote!...the Turin Winter Olympics are suddenly a whole new world (Hint: Click that "On/Off" button at the very bottom of the remote to get pic on pic).
And four, I've discovered some nifty Web addresses to help me program this Olympic madness...the MSNBC Winter Olympics TV Schedule, for example. And also the NBC Olympics RSS feeds, for those so inclined to subscribe to RSS feeds for results in specific events.
Now if I could just another 24 hours to the day so I can keep up with it all.
