SO here I am 9:30 am and there is some tool in camo shooting ducks on my TV. I thought there was going to be live coverage at 9:30 am Saturday of the Giro. WAAAAAAAAAA where is it???

Take a big, deep breath and re-check the schedule. Weekends OLN has taped coverage from 3:00-4:30. Live coverage is weekdays.
thanks for the heads up nmafrican

It is precisely on weekends that I can actually watch live coverage. I'm not sure if I can see the logic in this.

I was going to ask "who even watches hunting on TV" when I realized there are those asking "who even watches cycling..."

There is hunting on your TV because it's called the OUTDOOR Life Network, not the Bicycling Life Network :-) Being an avid hunter and cyclist I love watching all of it, but could probably do without some of the rodeo and "animal planet" type shows on OLN. The network seems to be all over the board in their programming, so they are obviously searching for ratings. My guess is that their hunting audience is at least triple the cycling audience. OLN does not want to lose those viewers by putting on a bunch of guys in colored spandex riding through European countries in place of a bunch of guys in camo in a cut corn field in Kansas. If OLN can keep their hunting viewers by tape delaying the Giro, then they will do just that. Cyclists have only one outlet to watch their sport so OLN knows they will tune in whenever they must to watch.

Just my humble opinion.
