2006 really is the year high definition is taking over, and today's sports lineup proves it. Say what you will about NBC's HD Olympics coverage, the Daytona 500 is just kicking off and it may not even be the biggest event today. With speedskating and bobsled finals tonight, plus the always exciting ice dancing, the Olympics have a lot to offer, as well as some little thing called the NBA All-Star Game.
Sure the Super Bowl got all

luckily the 500 is so early, or I'd have some difficult choices to make with my DVR. Too bad the weather isn't better at
Daytona as it's more impressive when it's not so overcast, hopefully it will clear up as the day goes on. Still, those
wall mounted-cameras are for my money the most exciting shot in sports.
But it has been a great weekend,

NBA All-Star Friday and Saturday night activities. Speaking of, did
anybody else check out the Slam Dunk competition last night? I love Nate Robinson but Iguodala got robbed, his
