Phish + The Olympics = Some stoner got hired by NBC

We're receiving daily reports of Phish "sightings" during NBC's coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, including:

•Ocelot was played during trials for the ski jump on 12/26/09.

•First Tube was used in the bump to a commercial about the upcoming bobsled competition on 2/20/10.

•Tweezer Reprise (a good 2 minutes worth!) was the background music for the Ohno speedskating segment late on 2/20/10. LINK

•Kill Devil Falls (the version from Joy) was played over the PA at the Canada vs. USA men's hockey game 2/21/10, with about 15 seconds left in the first period. They played about 20 seconds of the chorus before the puck was dropped again. Axilla (Part II) was played with about 8 minutes left in the second period at the same game.

What else have you noticed?

Nice. The only bits I've watched have been at work with the sound off. Continue infiltrating.

This is more proof pointing to Phish playing Telluride in August.
